### Position Control vs Velocity Control vs Torque Control

I'm going to take a slightly different tack to Chuck. What is Torque Control? For me, Torque Control is about performing a move with an explicitly defined torque, rather considering torque just the ...

### Position Control vs Velocity Control vs Torque Control

Torque is analogous to force for rotating systems, in that: $$F = m a \\ \tau = I \alpha \\$$ Where $\alpha$ is angular acceleration and $I$ is moment of inertia. $m$ and $a$ are mass and linear ...

### Why with the pseudo-inverse it is possible to invert the Jacobian matrix even in a singular configuration?

The pseudoinverse gives a “least squared error, minimum-norm” solution: Out of all $\dot{q}$ vectors at your current $q$, the vector $$\dot{q}_{s} = J^{+}(q)\dot{p}_{\text{in}}$$ satisfies two ...

### Is configuration space same as joint space?

In robotics the configuration space is exactly the joint space of the manipulator. Differently, to indicate the space where the forward kinematic law maps the joints configuration into, we use the ...

### Inverse Kinematics of Parallel Manipulator (Delta Robot)

For these sorts of problems, I always like to attempt to solve them myself. And they're surprisingly simple when you think about them geometrically. Parallel mechanisms are especially easy because ...

### jacobian of Abb irb140 robot

Here is the traditional way. I think this is the kinematics of your arm, but am not 100% sure. Here are the DH parameters and transformation matrix: DH Parameters for the anthropomorphic ...

### How do you calculate the moment of inertia of a Quadcopter?

You can calculate the moment of inertia of a pendulum by measuring the period of oscillation for small amplitudes. Suspend the quad by one arm and give it a little push and time the period. It does ...

### Jacobian-based trajectory following

The math required to deal with the orientation error (in terms of error with respect to both desired position and desired velocity) is well described in the book of Sciavicco-Siciliano. See section 3....

### Does Inverse Kinematics need the current joint angles?

It depends on the method that you use for computing an IK solution. If you have an analytic formula for IK solutions then you do not need the current joint values of the robot. You just plug in the ...

### How do CAD programs solve for Inverse/Forward Kinematics problem in Assembly?

EDIT: Improved based on the comments below. If you have a CAD assembled, that means that you have one valid configuration given. You move the TCP (Tool Center Point) only a small amount, since your ...

### Confusion in fixing DH frames

The updated image solves the problem. You did not consider the end-effector coordinate frame earlier. Also, the crosses (going into) in the diagrams should be replaced by dots(coming out), because the ...

### How can serial manipulator have unique condition number for given end effector position?

Condition number and manipulability are measured at a specific joint configuration, not end-effector location. You already understand it correctly that the values change according to the robot ...

### Inverse Kinematics problem formulation (optimization)

The formulation is typical for redundant robots, in which there are an infinite number of joint velocity vectors that could satisfy the $\dot{r}_{t}$ goal. In the version you cite, the $Q$ matrix ...
