Measurement of friction force

Post by KNt »

Hello.
I used sim.getContactInfo to check the friction force in the Bullet 2.78 engine. But it does not give the correct value. So I found a TOPIC that says it is not possible to measure friction force using sim.getContactInfo in Bullet2.78(https://forum.coppeliarobotics.com/view ... nfo#p34434). However, I really want to measure it with Bullet2.78. I tried to measure using a force sensor, but it failed. Is there any other way to measure friction force with Bullet2.78 engine other than force sensor?

Hello,

we had a look into it, this change should do it, we also found a similar case, unfortunately not answered on their forum.

For any insights, we'd be grateful and would immediately implement them.

Cheers
