SetObjectPoses
is useful for setting a scene to the exact state of a previous initialization without relying on the Object Position Randomization’s random seed. Use a previous metadata dump of SimObjects to get position/rotation data for each SimObject. Sets up a scene according to the provided objects and poses. Objects which are specified twice will be copied.

Warning

All moveable and pickupable objects will be removed from the scene if they are not specified.

controller.step(
  action='SetObjectPoses',
  objectPoses=[
    {
      "objectName": "Alarm_Clock_19",
      "rotation": {
        "y": 270,
        "x": 0,
        "z": 0
      },
      "position": {
        "y": 0.8197357,

        "z": 0.054755792

Set Object Poses Parameters

List of object names and their poses. This information can be dumped from the metadata of a prior episode. Each pose must contain keys for

  • objectName: The name of the Sim Object reported by the object metadata's
    name
    parameter.
  • position: Global coordinate position of the object, as reported in the object's
    position
    metadata.
  • rotation: Local coordinate rotation of the object, as reported in the object's
    rotation
    metadata.

SetMassProperties
changes the mass properties of any
Pickupable
or
Moveable
object.

Set Mass Properties Parameters

The unique identifier of a

Moveable
object, found in the object metadata.

mass

: float
required

The new object's mass, in kilograms. Must be greater than 00.

drag

: float
required

The new drag coefficient of the object, which determines its resistance when it is in motion. Higher values slow the object down more. Must be greater than 00.

The new angular drag coefficient of the object, which determines its resistance when it is in rotational motion. Higher values make it harder to rotate the object. Must be greater than 00.

SetRoomTempDecayTimeForType
changes all objects specified by objectType in the current scene to have a new Room Temp Decay Time specified by TimeUntilRoomTemp. This can be done to adjust the amount of time it takes for specific object types to return to room temperature. By default, all objects begin at Room Temperature. Objects placed on/in Hot or Cold sources (stove burner, microwave, fridge etc.) will have their ObjectTemperature value changed to Hot or Cold. If the object is removed from a Hot or Cold source, they will return to room temperature over time. The default time it takes for an object to decay to Room Temp is 10 seconds.

controller.step(
    action="SetRoomTempDecayTimeForType",
    objectType="Bread",
    TimeUntilRoomTemp=20.0
)

Parameters

The object type to change the decay timer of. See a full list of Object Types on the Object Types page.

The amount of time it will take for an object to decay from Hot/Cold to Room Temp.

SetGlobalRoomTempDecayTime
changes all objects in the current scene to have a new Room Temp Decay Time specified by TimeUntilRoomTemp. By default, all objects begin at Room Temperature. Objects placed on/in Hot or Cold sources (stove burner, microwave, fridge etc.) will have their ObjectTemperature value changed to Hot or Cold. If the object is removed from a Hot or Cold source, they will return to room temperature over time. The default time it takes for an object to decay to Room Temp is 10 seconds.

controller.step(
    action="SetGlobalRoomTempDecayTime",
    TimeUntilRoomTemp=20.0
)

Parameters

The amount of time it will take for an object to decay from Hot/Cold to Room Temp.

SetDecayTemperatureBool
disables the decay over time of the ObjectTemperature of objects. If set to False, objects will not decay to room temperature and will remain Hot/Cold even if removed from the Hot/Cold source.

controller.step(
    action='SetDecayTemperatureBool',
    allowDecayTemperature=False
)

Set to allow object Temperatures to decay over time.

Warning

Hiding an object may cause unintended interactions with other objects after an object is disabled. For example, a table with a Plate and Apple resting on top of it will cause both the Plate and Apple to fall to the floor if the table object supporting them is disabled.

RemoveFromScene
completely destroys an removes an object from the scene. This action cannot be undone (without resetting the scene).

controller.step(
    action="RemoveFromScene",
    objectId="Mug|+0.25|-0.27|+1.05"
)

Remove from Scene Parameters

The unique identifier of the object in the scene.

DisableObject
disables an object from being visible in the scene. Unlike the RemoveFromScene action, this does not permanently destroy an object in the scene, as it can be toggled back on later in the episode using EnableObject.

controller.step(
    action="DisableObject",
    objectId="DiningTable|+1.0|+1.0|+1.0"
)

Disable Objet Parameters

The string id of the sim object to disable. Note that this may cause unintended interactions with other objects after an object is disabled. For example, a table with a Plate and Apple resting on top of it will cause both the Plate and Apple to fall to the floor if the table object supporting them is disabled.

EnableObject
activates an object if it has been previously disabled by DisableObject.

controller.step(
    action="EnableObject",
    objectId="DiningTable|+1.0|+1.0|+1.0"
)

Enable Objet Parameters

The string id of the sim object to reactivate. Note that this may cause unintended interactions with other objects after an object is reactivated. Enabled objects will return to their original location, which may cause clipping or weird collision with other objects if another sim object or the agent has moved into the area where the enabled object is.
