Fundamentals of Robot Motions: Configurations (Introduction)

Fundamentals of Robot Motions: Configurations (Introduction)

This post is part one of the series of lessons on the fundamentals necessary to represent the robot's configuration, and it gives an introduction to what we mean when we are talking about representing a robot's configuration. In previous lessons, we learned that the robot's configuration answers the question of where the robot is, and we saw that there are two ways to represent the robot's configuration: Implicit representation, where the configuration is represented by embedding the curved space in higher-dimensional Euclidean space subject to constraints and explicit representation where configuration is represented with a minimum number of coordinates. You…

Fundamentals of Robot Motions: Preliminaries

This post and the coming posts will be focused on the necessary tools needed to express the robot motions. In this post, you will become familiarized with the preliminaries and prerequisites needed before jumping into the main topics. For the full comprehension of the Fundamentals of Robot Motions and the necessary tools to express motion in robotics, please also read all the lessons in the following link (some lessons will be added later): https://www.mecharithm.com/category/fundamentals-of-robotics/fundamentals-of-robot-motions/ When we talk about robot motions, we will need fundamentals such as the representations of configurations, velocities, and forces that cause the motions. In this post…
