Elements of Computer Graphic Robot Simulation
Several robot simulation programs have been developed for teaching robot kinematics and dynamics and for studying off-line robot programming. These simulation programs are able to effectively illustrate the following elements of robotics: (1) teach pendant and forward kinematics, (2) inverse kinematics, (3) dynamics, (4) applying a solid modeling system, (5) modeling objects based on a multiple-representation scheme, (6) modeling swept volumes for collision detection, and (7) off-line program verification. This paper details the content of each simulation program and briefs the techniques used in the development of these programs.
