### Problem calculating inverse kinematics in a 4-DOF robot arm for drawing

I'm trying to do a robotic arm to draw a circle with 4-DOF, I'm using the Denavit-Hartenberg method (DH) to calculate the foward kinematics and the jacobian method to do the inverse kinematic. So ...

### Why do current manipulators tend to use 7 DoF instead of 6 DoF?

In theory, controlling a 6D pose (3D position + 3D orientation) would require 6 joints, and - assuming the robot is carefully designed - the inverse kinematics should be solvable for that case. Adding ...

### How do you model a physical robot (diff drive) in python?

I am using PyGame to simulate the motion of a differential drive robot. So far, I have used the standard diff drive kinematics, multiplying by delta time, and I have the motion working as expected. ...
