We summarise the important points from this lecture.

lesson

We introduce serial-link robot manipulators, the sort of robot arms you might have seen working in factories doing tasks like welding, spray painting or material transfer. We will learn how we can compute the pose of the robot’s end-effector given knowledge of the robot’s joint angles and the dimensions of its links.

lesson

We use MATLAB and some Toolbox functions to find corresponding points between two images using SURF features.

lesson

We consider a robot, which has two rotary joints and an arm.

lesson

We will learn how to create coordinate frames that have smoothly changing position and orientation over time.

lesson

Now we introduce a variant of the Jacobian matrix that can relate our angular velocity vector back to our rates of change of the roll, pitch and yaw angles.

lesson

We recap the important points from this masterclass.

lesson

We extend the idea of relative pose, introduced in the last lecture, to 3D. We learn another right-hand rule that indicates the direction of rotation about an axis, and we see how we can attach 3D coordinate frames to objects to determine their pose in 3D space.

lesson

We will introduce resolved-rate motion control which is a classical Jacobian-based scheme for moving the end-effector at a specified velocity without having to compute inverse kinematics.

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.
