Member Function Documentation

virtual double propertyservice::mobilerobot::Sensor::getMeasurement   [pure virtual]

Get the current measurement from a sensor.

This value may be a distance measurement from a sonar, a boolean value or a pressure measurement from a bumber or just about anything else. The only restriction is that the value must be scalar.

virtual void propertyservice::mobilerobot::Sensor::setLocation SensorLocation    [pure virtual]

Set the location of a sensor.

For statically mounted sensors, this method typically does nothing. But in cases like a scanning sonar, it might have a purpose.
