Does the ft_sensor plugin works currently? I am trying it on Gazebo 4.0, it seems to be set up correctly, but it always publishes a zero value, both for force and torque.

This is an extract from the .sdf file I use:

(I linked a gist since the code format does not seem to work)

If it does work for you, can you give your configuration or point me out another test case?

It seems that, as for Gazebo 4.0.0, the <provide_feedback> tag must be put outside of ode, inside the physics tag.

Here the fixed gist:

with --verbose a warning is issued when the <provide_feedback> tag is missing.
