In Topic: Setting up a Vehicle

06 April 2013 - 01:59 PM

I added the following lines:

 

 

void update()
{
       int wheelIndex = 1;
       m_vehicle->applyEngineForce(gEngineForce,wheelIndex);
       m_vehicle->setBrake(gBreakingForce,wheelIndex);
       wheelIndex = 2;
       m_vehicle->applyEngineForce(gEngineForce,wheelIndex);
       m_vehicle->setBrake(gBreakingForce,wheelIndex);

       wheelIndex = 1;
       m_vehicle->setSteeringValue(gVehicleSteering,wheelIndex);
       wheelIndex = 2;
       m_vehicle->setSteeringValue(gVehicleSteering,wheelIndex);
}

 

 

Now I can notice that the vehicle is steering but not moving forward or backward.

Are you breaking and accelerating at the same time?

 

       m_vehicle->applyEngineForce(gEngineForce,wheelIndex);
       m_vehicle->setBrake(gBreakingForce,wheelIndex);


In Topic: What are the benefits of the TOI?

04 April 2013 - 09:32 AM

e.g:

 

I have a sphere-plane intersection.

 

The velocity.dot(plane.normal) (relative velocity along the plane normal = velocity + angular velocity.cross(relative point) ) is oscilating between 0 - 0.15 and I want to apply static friction when Vrn == 0. The TOI could fix this?

What do you mean with TOI?

Sure!

 

The class is not well completed, but I'm trying to get the vehicle to work so I can make the appropriate changes after that.

You are updating the gEngineForce var in your code, this is right, but this var is never used elsewhere. I was checking the original btRaycastVehicle code and I think you should do something similar with that gEngineForce: apply it to the wheels:

 

void btRaycastVehicle::applyEngineForce(btScalar force, int wheel)

383 {
384  btAssert(wheel>=0 && wheel < getNumWheels());
385  btWheelInfo& wheelInfo = getWheelInfo(wheel);
386  wheelInfo.m_engineForce = force;
387 }

In Topic: Setting up a Vehicle

@Ravnock:
 
Here is how I'm using engine force:
void Vehicle::DetectInput()
{
if (GetAsyncKeyState(VK_UP) != 0)
{
    gEngineForce = maxEngineForce;
    gBreakingForce = 0.f;
}
....

Not working.

 

If I should override updateVehicle() I'm not sure what should I add in that function.

Is your Vehicle a child class of btRaycastVehicle? Could you post the cpp and header file?

I'm having trouble in setting up a vehicle, I'm trying to make a simple vehicle (1 box and 4 wheels) in Bullet Physics, but couldn't get it to work.

 

The vehicle never move forward and sometimes it get up side down.

 

 
The following code is taken from Bullet sample, I made some modifications:

 

#include "Vehicle.h"

#ifdef FORCE_ZAXIS_UP
int rightIndex = 0; 
int upIndex = 2; 
int forwardIndex = 1;
btVector3 wheelDirectionCS0(0,0,-1);
btVector3 wheelAxleCS(1,0,0);
#else
int rightIndex = 0;
int upIndex = 1;
int forwardIndex = 2;
btVector3 wheelDirectionCS0(0,0,-1); // 0,-1,0
btVector3 wheelAxleCS(1,0,0);
#endif

const int maxOverlap = 65535;


///btRaycastVehicle is the interface for the constraint that implements the raycast vehicle

engineForce is never used, am I right?

 

I think you should override the updateVehicle virtual function
