Compound Sensor

Special sensor that merges other sensors’ outputs

This special sensor is constructed by passing a list of other sensors, and creates a new datastream from the concatenation of other sensors’ local_data.

More accurately, it streams a dictionary of {<sensor name>: <sensor local_data>}.

Note that services exposed by original sensors are not exposed by the compound sensor.

Configuration parameters for Compound Sensor

You can set these properties in your scripts with <component>.properties(<property1>=..., <property2>=...).

  • sensors (The list of sensor names to merge., default: [])

    (no documentation available yet)

Data fields

This sensor exports these datafields at each simulation step:

  • timestamp (float, initial value: 0.0)

    number of seconds in simulated time

Interface support:

(attention, no interface support!)

Services for Compound Sensor

  • get_properties() (blocking)

    Returns the properties of a component.

    • Return value

      a dictionary of the current component’s properties

  • get_local_data() (blocking)

    Returns the current data stored in the sensor.

    • Return value

      a dictionary of the current sensor’s data

  • set_property(prop_name, prop_val) (blocking)

    Modify one property on a component

    • Parameters

      • prop_name: the name of the property to modify (as shown the documentation)
      • prop_val: the new value of the property. Note that there is no checking about the type of the value so be careful
    • Return value


  • get_configurations() (blocking)

    Returns the configurations of a component (parsed from the properties).

    • Return value

      a dictionary of the current component’s configurations
