Ground Reaction Force

Discussion in 'Visualization' started by Rawal Khirodkar, Jun 4, 2018.

  1. Hi,

    How to extract the ground reaction forces (in global coordinates) from the model?

    I believe it is a part of efc_force (one of the constraints force) in mjData.
    The constraint forces can be distinguished using efc_type. However, I am only interested in contact forces with the ground.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    You have to write some code that searches the list of contacts ( and identifies contacts where one of the geoms is the ground.
  3. Thank you for your question, @Rawal Khirodkar, and thank you very much for pointing me to a cleaner way of detecting GRFs, @Emo Todorov. Before I was using mjData.crfc_ext described here, which also worked out.

    Could you please share your solution, when you're done, @Rawal Khirodkar?

    Thank you in advance and best luck!
