Calibrate robotic accessor

Starts the calibration task on a specific accessor in the library. This uses the accessor’s sensors to test the X/Y limits of the accessor within the library to ensure accessor movement is performed accurately. This is typically initiated by service or in response to instructions in event fix procedures.

This is not supported for Diamondback as the x/y limits are determined automatically in this case.
