Read data in the 'MTConnect'< http://www.mtconnect.org/> standard. You can use the package to read data from historical 'MTConnect logs' along with the 'devices.xml' describing the device. The data is organised into a 'MTConnectDevice' S4 data structure and some convenience methods are also provided for basic read/view operations. The package also includes some functions for analysis of 'MTConnect' data. This includes functions to simulate data (primarily position data, feed rate and velocities) based on the G code and visualisation functions to compare the actual and simulated data.
