Serial Robot

Created Sonntag 01 Mai 2016

Using MATLAB to animate R planar serial robot

DH-representation of a robot can be used to formulate its forward kinematics (see FkineDH):

Using the formula above, we will animate a 4-Rplanar serial robot. By aplying the formula above iteratively for every link, we can calculate the end-point for every link.
The same concept can be applied to all serial robot, with either revolute or prismatic joint.


Run example_4r_planar.m which is inside thid zip file: ./r-planar.zip
