These sensors measure
force f in N position s in m velocity v in m/s acceleration a in m/s2
In this example, the measured velocity and acceleration is independent of
the flange the sensor is connected to. In contrast, the measured position
depends on the flange (flange_a or flange_b) and the
length L of the component.
