Manual: add "role" description, add section on module types (keywords only)

......@@ -160,6 +160,11 @@ The detector configuration consists of a set of sections describing the detector
Each section starts with a header describing the name used to identify the detector; all names are required to be unique.
Every detector should contain all of the following parameters:
\item The \parameter{role} parameter is an array of strings indicating the function(s) of the respective detector. This can be \parameter{dut} or \parameter{reference}, the default is \parameter{none}. With the default, the respective detector participates in tracking but is neither used as reference plane for alignment and correlations, nur treated as DUT. As reference, the detector is used as anchor for relative alignments, and its position and orientation is used to produce correlation plots. As DUT, the detector is by default excluded from tracking, and all DUT-type modules are executed for this detector.
There always has to be exactly \emph{one} reference detector in the setup. For setups with a single detector only, the role should be configured as \parameter{dut, reference} for the detector to act as both.
\item The \parameter{type} parameter is a string describing the type of detector, e.g.\ \parameter{Timepix3} or \parameter{CLICpix2}. This value might be used by some modules to distinguish between different types.
\item The \parameter{position} in the world frame.
This is the position of the geometric center of the sensor given in world coordinates as X, Y and Z as defined in Section~\ref{sec:coordinate_systems}.
