Back Tracing and Sensors

Post by jerry.mughal » 09 Feb 2020, 08:08

Hey, I am working on my project in V REP where I need my manipulator to perform certain tasks, to do that I wanna know that whether I can have position and torque sensors here? and how can I back trace the path?

Hello, yes, you can get the position of any object with sim.getObjectPosition, and you can measure forces/torques with a force/torque sensor.

What do you mean with backtrace the path?

Cheers

From backtracing I mean when a manipulator follows a path to pick an object then it follows the same path inversly to place it

To back track the path, simply follow it in reverse order.

Cheers
