RSIM: Robot Arm Simulator
RSIM is a SGI-based graphical robot simulator from the University
of Melbourne, with very nice graphics. It does discrete time
simulation of an arbitrary linked robot arm, with full kinematics and
dynamics. There is a discrete-time controller and a standard C interface
so that users can create and test different controller algorithms.
The robot simulator currently only works on SGI machines, and in a
no-graphics mode on other machines. When the IPRS GUI standard is
established, the authors will be converting this to run under IPRS,
which will make it machine independent.
Ports: SGI machines; will run without graphics on other machines.
Copying: Use, copying, and distribution permitted.
