## How to calculate the distance between any two points of the network?

Hello,

I have a question for the developers of the AGV module. I noticed that there is a specific function cpdistance(obj cp1, obj cp2) to calculate the distance between two Contrtol Points. By chance there is a similar function or a simple way to calculate the distance between two points of the network without using Control Points.

For example I would like to calculate the distance between the two points of intersection indicated in the attached photo.

Hi,

I don't know a direct command to compute that distance.

I suggest to use the data "distAlong" stored inside the path to know the distance along the path. Then you can compute the total distance jumping from the previous path to the next path till the target is reached.

But I don't figure out how you could use this value. If you explained your objective, I'll try to help you better.
