Human Posture

This sensor collects the positions of the bones in the human armature for the file $MORSE_ROOT/data/robots/human.blend.

It stores the position and orientation of the general armature object, as well as the local rotation of each individual bone. The rotation angles are given in radians.

This sensor will only work for the human.blend model, as it uses a specific naming convention for each of the bones.

You can also check to general documentation of the human component.

Examples

The following examples show how to use this component in a Builder script:

from morse.builder import *

# adds a default robot (the MORSE mascott!)
robot = Morsy()

# creates a new instance of the sensor
humanposture = HumanPosture()

# place your component at the correct location
humanposture.translate(<x>, <y>, <z>)
humanposture.rotate(<rx>, <ry>, <rz>)

robot.append(humanposture)

# define one or several communication interface, like 'socket'
humanposture.add_interface(<interface>)

env = Environment('empty')
