Modeling contacts on soft skin

  1. Hi! I'm trying to simulate a grasping task with a robotic hand that is covered in a soft skin. This means that the contacts are somewhat compliant in both the normal and tangential direction. I have empirical estimates of the contact compliance and would like to simulate such contacts in MuJoCo.

    I read in the documentation that this might be possible by making the impedance parameter of the constraint solver position dependent but I am unclear about how exactly to do this. Thanks for your help!
