How a Differential Equation Becomes a Robot: Part 4: Forward and Inverse Kinematics

Register to watch video

In Part 4 of this five-part webinar series we perform basic kinematic analysis. We show how to bring results of symbolic studies into the Simulink environment. We also show general optimization techniques, automatic report generation and how to create stand-alone applications. We also describe how to connect your model to a virtual reality environment for three-dimensional visualization.
