#### Right-Handed 3D Coordinate Frame

lesson

We discuss the structure of a right-handed 3D coordinate frame and the spatial relationship between its axes which is encoded in the right-hand rule.

lesson

We previously learnt how to derive a Jacobian which relates the velocity of a point, defined relative to one coordinate frame, to the velocity relative to a different coordinate frame. Now we extend that to the 3D case.

lesson

We can also derive a Jacobian which relates the velocity of a point, defined relative to one coordinate frame, to the velocity relative to a different coordinate frame.

lesson

This is an exercise in which you can build a 3D coordinate frame by printing, cutting, folding and stapling.

lesson

We summarise the important points from this lecture.

lesson

We consider the simplest possible robot, which has one rotary joint and an arm.

lesson

We learn how to describe the orientation of an object by a 2×2 rotation matrix which has some special properties. Try your hand at some online MATLAB problems. You’ll need to watch all the 2D “Spatial Maths” lessons to complete the problem set.

lesson

We store movies in files, typically in an MPEG format. Let’s look at what’s inside one of those movie files, and how we can grab a frame from a movie as an image and put it into the MATLAB workspace.

lesson

The orientation of a body in 3D can also be described by a unit-Quaternion, an unusual but very useful mathematical object. In the MATLAB example starting at 3:48 I use the Quaternion class. For Toolbox version 10 (2017) please use UnitQuaternion instead.

lesson

We consider multiple objects each with their own 3D coordinate frame. Now we can describe the relationships between the frames and find a vector describing a point with respect to any of these frames. We extend our previous 2D algebraic notation to 3D and look again at pose graphs.
