  16-311 Lab 9: Inverse Kinematics

Lab 9: Inverse Kinematics

Challenge Statement

Move a robot arm around obstacles to bring an end effector from given start position to end position.

Lab Goals

  1. Construct an easily-controlable revolute-revolute arm.
  2. Use inverse kinematics principles to direct the position of the end effector of this arm.
  3. Motion-planning algorithms to move between two points avoiding obstacles.



You may have to combat the following while developing your machines:
