2012-11-27 11:00:43 -0500 asked a question contact force sensing

It seems that there is a bump/force sensor that works for contact on a link. However, does this scale or is there another implemented sensor that would allow me to get contact forces all over a robot arm? Essentially, I'd like to simulate tactile sensing. I have implemented and used something similar in ODE directly, but wondered if the contact joint API was exposed in Gazebo. Or if it would be possible to write a plugin to do get the forces. Any help would be much appreciated as I'd really rather use Gazebo.

thanks.
