"""Shows usage of the JointTorque sensor, with the CentrifugalForce program.
Sensor data is stored in a queue, which is retrieved after the simulation ends
(but it can be accessed at any time).

Sensor is created in :meth:`create_sim_objects`.
>>> self.sensor = sen.JointTorque(joint_object, self.sim)

It is updated automatically every time torque is added to the joint, i.e.
each time ``joint.addTorque(x)`` is called.

Sensor measurements can be easily retrieved at any time
>>> self.sensor.data_queue.pull()
