Re: how to build a counter for the laser pointer when the laser pointer was triggered ?

The simplest is to use a non-threaded child script for that. In the sensing section, read your proximity sensor with sim.readProximitySensor . Compare the detection value with the value read in previous simulation step. If the value goes from no detection to detection , then increment your counter. ...

Re: vrep.simExt* functions API help topics

Hello and sorry for the delay,

those functions are not listed in the API, since they are not meant to be used. Currently they are used by PyRep.

Re: how can i make my robot move to a point directly?

Hello, and sorry for the delay, it is very difficult to say what is going on, we don't even know what kind of robot you are using. Make sure to identify the source of problem: is it the physics simulation, or the algorithm? If it is the physics simulation, make sure that your robot is correctly desi...

Re: Path Planning Module

Hello,

you can still enable that functionality via variable enableOldCalcModuleGuis in file system/usrset.txt, but we highly recommend using the OMPL plugin for path planning applications in CoppeliaSim, since it is much more flexible and powerful.

Re: Mismatch of RGB image and depth image

Hello,

depth and RGB images are acquired at the same time. So you probably are not reading the depth matp and RGB image at the same time. How are you doing this? Inside of a threaded child script?

Re: Is There A Portable Version Of The C++ b0 API?

Hello,

not sure... are you talking about the B0-based remote API? So you basically want to compile e.g. the simpleTest program of the B'-based remote API?

Re: How do i setup Motors correctly?

your best option would be to use the Vortex or Newton engine for your simulation. The other engines require tweaking of the masses for a satisfying simulation... for that reason Bullet and ODE are often also called game engines.
