### Propagation of covariance matrix during a rotation

Suppose we have a rotation matrix representing an objects rotation in a certain frame $F_1$ along with a distribution of Euler Angles representing the probability that the object is perturbed from ...

### Can Euler angles cause gimbal lock when you always rotate along body or fixed frame axes?

I am learning about Euler angles, and read about gimbal lock. I read that representing rotations with Euler angles can always cause gimbal lock. All the examples that I saw on the internet show an ...

### Is it possible to do uncertainty propagation with TF2? If not what can I use?

I'm interested in applying a sequence of linear transformations to a gaussian probability vector in TF2. As far as I understand this is a pretty operation due to the gaussian nature and I see TF2 has ...

### How to lookup most recent tf2 transform regardless of age

I want a callback to respond to an update between any of the tf2 transforms between frame A and B on the /tf topic. It should use the most recent transform available between every frame. Some frames ...

### How to Ensure Consistent Reference Frames for Comparing Odometer and Camera Angle Data in ROS Noetic?

In my ROS Noetic project of a vehicle with a camera and odometer, I'm planning to compare the vehicle's position from the odometer with the desired angle or direction detected by the camera. However, ...

### Inverse Kinematics, indicate if multiple soltuions exist using a matrix

I'm trying to practice inverse kinematics and I'm having a really tough time understanding how you can indicate if multiple solutions exist just using a matrix. I also don't know how I would indicate ...

### How to use Quaternion from IMU to get the transformation to inertial reference frame?

Im trying to get the Linear Velocity integrating the acceleration from IMu. I know there will be accumulated error due to integration bit before the integration I have to do couple of other steps. ...

### How to do transformation to get correct linear velocity from linear acceleration IMU data?

I have IMU sensor that gives me the raw data such as orientation, Angular and Linear acceleration. Im using ROS and doing some Gazebo UUV simulation. Furthermore, I want to get linear velocity from ...

### Is the translational vector (positon) in transformation matrices in cm or another unit (MATLAB)?

My transformation matrix gives me, for example, x = 0.06, y = 0.27 and z = -0.04 It does not make a lot of sense to me if this is in cm.

### How can I input joint angles to transformation matrix to get position in matlab?

I am trying to get the forward kinematics for a robot model in matlab (rigid body tree). I created a 4 x4 transformation matrix from the base to the end-effector using the gettransform() function. I ...

### Calculate transform from different poses

My robot is at a starting pose $s_0 = (x_0, y_0, \theta_0)$ and, while moving, I receive a sequence of motion measurements $[\mu_1, \mu_2, \: ... \: \mu_n]$, where \$\mu_i = (\Delta x_i, \Delta y_i, \...

### calculation sequences when using RPY-transformation vs Euler-transformation

I have trouble understanding calculation sequences for RPY-transformation and Euler-transformation. Let's assume that there are 3 (rotation/translation) instructions. I will notate transformation ...

### Elegant way to mathematically relate joint positions (without a root/base joint) for easy re-rooting?

I'm pretty new to robotics, but have learned about the tranformation matrices and how to relate relationships between joints using transformation matrices. I just wonder if there is a system that ...

### orientation transformation

I have a 6-dimensional vector(x,y,z,roll,pitch,yaw) in frame 1, I want to convert it to frame 2 in order to represent the value in frame 2. I know that p2=R12*p1 where p1 is the (xyz) in frame 1. The ...
