Grahic Jump Location
Three step procedure of the linear quadratic tracking algorithm
Grahic Jump Location
A five-segment planar biped showing the initial and final position of the lifting cycle of the motion.
Grahic Jump Location
Motion trajectories at the five joints for a lifting and lowering motion of a 10 kg mass
Grahic Jump Location
Joint moment comparison at each of the five joints for a lifting and lowering of a 10 kg mass. The reference torque profiles represent the joint torques calculated using the inverse dynamics analysis. In this simulation, the reference and simulated trajectories are nearly identical and are difficult to discern.
Grahic Jump Location
Motion trajectories at the five joints when the external mass is suddenly increased from 10 kg to 20 kg at the t=1 second mark. The reference trajectories represent the trajectories of the original motion without the increase in the mass. The reference and simulated trajectories are nearly identical up to the time when the load change occurs.
