Inverse kinematics dynamical system

Created Montag 02 Mai 2016


Wolovich et. al. introduced a computational method to perform inverse kinematics. The method is called inverse kinematics dynamical system and is described as follows:


To summarize, it actualy works as illustrated in the picture below. As shown in the picture, a spring and a damper is attached to the end-effector of the robot. Thus, the robot's end-effector moves incrementally to desired position.
