Heat Path (Expand and decrease during simulation and generator path)

Post by afik » 19 Dec 2019, 12:38

I want to create a mobile robot that follows the heat path. And I have a few questions about it because as I found out I can create a temperature sensor using a vision sensor by auxiliary component but my questions are about the path.

Is it possible to create such a path that after a while would begin to decrease in the auxiliary red, showing the natural process of cooling the path, or would it be possible for this path to expand width to show that heat is spreading sideways?

The last question is is there perhaps a path generator that would create a path extension while the simulation is running?

Hello,

sorry for the delay. This is not directly something that is supported. You could try to apply a single texture to a floor object, and modify that texture on the go, e.g. with sim.writeTexture.

Cheers
