Data Logging and Post-processing

All simulations from our template experiments contain a code snippet that logs spike and joint data in CSV files accessible from your storage. See the “Experiment files” section in the Clone an experiment and start a simulation.

The brain spikes and the robots joints states (position / velocity) are logged in CSV format. The logged data contains an additional ‘Simulation_reset’ column that tags the reset events. CSV is a well known human readable format that can be easily imported in most calculation sheets editors (Excel, OpenOffice) and post-processing tools (Matlab, iPython Notebook). For example, you might want to download your logs and use an iPython Notebook to post-process them.
