Returns the position or distance along a path that is closest to a specified point in space


float posAlongPath = sim.getClosestPosOnPath(list path, list pathLengths, list absPt) float posAlongPath = sim.getClosestPosOnPath(float[] path, float[] pathLengths, float[3] absPt)


  • path: path, specified in row-major order, with x/y/z values for each path point
  • pathLengths: lengths of a path. Each path point should have a corresponding length value (as the distance from the path's first point, along the path). See also sim.getPathLengths.
  • absPt: point in 3D space

Return values

  • posAlongPath: position/distance along the path
