inverse kinematics

This project is about implementing a short and relatively easy Arduino sketch to provide XYZ inverse kinematic positioning. I had built a 6 servo robotic arm but … Read more

Hexapod IK problem

Hi everyone, So I'm trying my hand at making a hexapod and have hit a snag which has me stuck now for a while. Basically I have built the hexapod and started coding it. Now I am trying to do body translation, i.e. the body moves but the feet stay perfectly planted, which works perfectly if I move the body up or down( my z direction). However when I move in the x or y direction, the feet do not stay planted at all. This can be seen in the 2nd and 3rd pic attached where the 1st pic is the starting position.

Inverse kinematics for a cable robot?

Does anyone have a source that can teach me how to do the inverse kinematics for a wire or cable driven type of bot?  I wanna make a skycam that uses 3 steppers instead of the usual 4.

Inverse Kinematics in VB

Hi everyone!

I'm trying to decide between 2 things before I get stuck into either, help!

Basically I want to try implementing some inverse kinematics on my custom humanoid, but it's running on a picaxe so I can't do it autonomously as the picaxe can't do floating point...

Hey guys, (Full disclosure) I work for Trossen Robotics, and this is a prototype for an upcoming product we're making. But- I think it's a pretty cool bot, so I … Read more
