Gazebo newbie.

I wanted to get the values from the contact sensor to use in a python program. Is there any way to get the values force and wrench values from the rostopic?

Thanks in advance.

I think Gazebo has material on his website pertaining to that : here and here.

You will most likely have to write a C++ Gazebo Sensor plugin to publish the values you want on the desired rostopic, and then subscribe to them in your ROS node.

Hope this can help you!
