Contact and force sensor

Contact and force sensors.

Contact sensor allows to know if the device's parent geometry is in contact with another geometry in the world. The contact information is provided only if the geometry has its 'Enable contact' property checked. 


It is also possible to get information about contact points location and applied forces. Two kind of information are available: 


- Per axis: the force measures are projected on the 6 half-axes and each axis is working as an autonomous force sensor. 

- Per contact point: location and applied forces/torques can be read by the sensor.


MODA: DeviceContact class.
