Sample Code


################  Get the distance of the radar cone.

# import bge module
import bge

# get the controller
cont = bge.logic.getCurrentController()

# get the sensor attached to the controller
# my sensor is named Search

sen = cont.sensors["Search"]

# get the distance of the radar cone
radar_distance = sen.distance
