Mesure airspeed

Sensor to compute Airspeed

The current implementation is only correct for speed < 1Mach

Configuration parameters for Airspeed

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

  • ComputationMode (string, default: "Automatic")
    Kind of computation, can be one of [‘Velocity’, ‘Position’]. Only robot with dynamic and Velocity control can choose Velocity computation. Default choice is Velocity for robot with physics, and Position for others

Data fields

This sensor exports these datafields at each simulation step:

  • timestamp (float, initial value: 0.0)
    number of seconds in simulated time
  • diff_pressure (float, initial value: 0.0)
    Diff pressure in Pa

Interface support:

(attention, no interface support!)

Services for Airspeed

  • get_configurations() (blocking)

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

    • Return value

      a dictionary of the current component’s configurations

  • get_local_data() (blocking)

    Returns the current data stored in the sensor.

    • Return value

      a dictionary of the current sensor’s data

  • get_properties() (blocking)

    Returns the properties of a component.

    • Return value

      a dictionary of the current component’s properties

  • 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



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
airspeed = Airspeed()

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


# define one or several communication interface, like 'socket'

env = Environment('empty')
