Object Grasping through python

I am trying to create a simple pick and place robot. I am new to vrep and python and would like some help . I am using a Kuka arm with a Baxter gripper . I am able to activate the opening and closing of the gripper from python . How do I activate the proximity sensors available on the gripper for efficient grasping?

grasping is a very complex topic. It is also very difficult to achieve good simulation results. This of course depends on many different factors (physics engine, type of simulation model, type of control, etc.)
If you do not need a realistic grasping it is therefore highly recommended to fake a grasping operation by artificially attaching the object via a force/torque sensor to the hand.
