5 Degrees of Freedom Robot (Minimum Time Control) – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft

5 Degrees of Freedom Robot (Minimum Time Control)

This is an extension of the 2-link robot model that includes body rotation, wrist and end effector. Each component has a 3D CAD object attached to it to create a visualization of the full robot. The movement of the manipulator is controlled to minimize the time required for a set path.
