Virtual coach timeout error


#1

Hi guys,
in order to wait for the sim make_on_status callback to finish, we have the following code, see bellow for full code, here only two lines.

    # wait for sim to be finished
    while sim.get_state() != 'stopped':

is this the best way to do this?
or what is the recommended way?

thanks,
camilo

# The function make_on_status() returns a on_status() function
# This is called a "closure":
# it is here used to pass the sim and datadir objects to on_status()
def make_on_status(sim, datadir):
    def on_status(msg):
        print("Current simulation time: {}".format(msg['simulationTime']))
        if msg['simulationTime'] == 15.0 and sim.get_state() == 'started':
            sim.pause()
            save_position_csv(sim, datadir)
            sim.stop()
            print("Trial terminated - saved CSV in {}".format(datadir))

    return on_status
