Manipulator Algorithm Design
Robotics System Toolbox™ manipulator algorithms support workflows related to rigid body,
articulated, and serial-link robots. You can import robot models from URDF files and
Multibody™ models using
importrobot, or load an existing
loadrobot. Use these robot models for many different robot
Define your robot
models using a
rigidBodyTree object composed of
rigid bodies with fixed, revolute, or prismatic joints. Generate joint
configurations, define dynamics properties for inertial effects, and use joint- and
task-space motion models to simulate robot motion.
Perform inverse kinematics to get joint configurations based on desired end-effector positions. Specify additional robot constraints other than the model parameters, including aiming constraints, Cartesian bounds, or pose targets.
Perform motion planning using your robot models and a rapidly exploring random tree (RRT) path planner.
Generate trajectories based on waypoints and other parameters with trapezoidal velocity profiles, B-splines, or polynomial trajectories.
Check for collisions with obstacles in your environment to ensure safe and effective motion for your robot.
