Finger sensors

This will be released after Manticore, because a dedicated service need to be created.

This is just a poc, to talk about what we put inside this service, later.

Thank you @Ash for the fingerstarter !!



explainations of the poc

The sensor need to be calibrated, foam is unstable, but with calibration it seem worky great.


The servo force can be regulated with the help of the sensor :

ear.addCommand("take the egg", "python", "CloseWithTorque(10)"

ear.addCommand("take the beer", "python", "CloseWithTorque(90)")

def CloseWithTorque(percent):

Take Beer ! That's great

That's great moz4r - you've covered a great amount of development.  

Parameters of torque input for actuators would be an excellent addition. 

Self calibration is a great feature too.  I think your development probably warrants creating of 3 or 4 new services.  We should probably get the gang together and try to model the interfaces - so they can be defined and "attach"'ed easily and robustly to other services.
