sensor synchronization

I am trying to model a sensor which captures a camera image at the same time as it captures a set of lidar points. The two sensors are co-boresighted so that they see the same field-of-view. These must be synchronized so the data is captured at the same time.

How do I do this?

how synchronized are we talking about here... seconds, milliseconds, microseconds, nanoseconds...?

I think the sensor type "multicamera" is to solve the synchronization problem. However right now the sub-element of "multicamera" must be "camera", not "ray" or other type. Could it be supported in the future?

probably not going to happen on its own, but you should try it and make a pull request. That's how a lot of new things get done, community contributions.
