How a Differential Equation Becomes a Robot: Part 1: Rigid Body Dynamics

Register to watch video

In Part 1 of this five-part webinar series we show how to model three-dimensional mechanical systems. We start by showing how to develop symbolic expressions and equations of motion, and how to build dynamic models that can be used for numeric simulation. We also show how to directly import mechanisms from popular CAD packages.
