### How is Screw Theory used in Robotics when you can do everything with regular kinematics?

Screw theory greatly simplifies the notation and expressions used. This allows for complex systems to be considered. As an added bonus it completely eliminates the need to specify which coordinate ...

### Relationship between the velocity twist Jacobian and the spatial velocity Jacobian

There are a lot of definitional problems and inconsistencies in this area. Geometric Jacobian. I'm not sure this has a precise and agreed upon meaning. But across the more classical robotics books (...

### Screw based Jacobian

Adding to Peter Corke's answer, there's also a Coursera course by Kevin Lynch which uses the Modern Robotics book as a reference and explains how to derive the screw based Jacobian. The Jacobian can ...

### Free-floating sphere dynamics using Roy Featherstone's spatial_v2 toolbox

You still haven't posted the (full) code that gives the results you've presented; when I run your snippet I don't the results you posted. Instead, I get: ...

### Newton-Euler Inverse Dynamics by Screw

maybe need some transformation from centers of mass to the joint frame? Isn't that what $A_i$ is? I don't have the book with me, but from your excerpt: Let $A_i$ be the screw axis of joint $i$ ...

### The Jacobian resulted from Screw method is different from analytical one (Example Inside)

There are in fact two types of Jacobians, a geometric Jacobian and an analytical Jacobian. The intro to chapter 3 in the book: Robotics: Modelling, Planning and Control by Bruno Siciliano, Lorenzo ...

### How is Screw Theory used in Robotics when you can do everything with regular kinematics?

Screw theory is another way to describe the motion of rigid bodies. The difference between this theory and the homogenous transformation matrix (i.e. standard approach) is the fact that with the ...

### In which frame this wrench is expressed?

Edited Answer From the question, it seems the loading is applied at the end effector but its line of action along the $x_s$ direction. I do prefer to resolve everything on the world inertial frame ...

### Forward kinematics confusing point

The author of the referenced thesis is using exponential coordinates and screw theory via the Product of Exponentials formulation to generate the sequence of transformations from one link to the next. ...

### How is Screw Theory used in Robotics when you can do everything with regular kinematics?

Why use polar or spherical coordinates when you can use Cartesian coordinates for everything? Why use Laplace transforms to solve differential equations? I think most of the challenge in higher math ...

### How do you calculate this integral term in this PI Controller Formula?

The term $X_e$ is not a matrix in SE(3) but a twist, as defined in the paragraph following the equation where it states that "... the configuration error $X_e(t)$ is not simply $X_d(t)-X(t)$, ...

### Difference between Denavit-Hartenberg and Rodrigues formulas/conventions

The DH method requires you to carefully specify local frames attached to each link and calculate linear and angular offsets between those frames in a very specific way in order to reduce the effective ...

### Park and Lynch $F = ma$ derivation for a single rigid body

The key thing to remember is that none of the equations used in the Modern Robotics textbook use "body-fixed frames". The {b} frame is defined as a "body frame" which is ...

### 3D Rigid Body Pose Optimization in flat euclidean space

See https://www.cis.upenn.edu/~cjtaylor/PUBLICATIONS/pdfs/TaylorTR94b.pdf. You can absolutely use "flat" Euclidean space based optimizers while also optimizing on the manifold, but I agree ...

### what is difference between twist and classcial velocity

In these equations from Modern Robotics (by Park and Lynch), the fixed inertial frame ${b}$ is both the reference frame used to define all of the coordinate vectors and has its origin located at the ...
