The workspace of a robot arm is the set of all positions that it can reach. This depends on a number of factors including the dimensions of the arm.
We consider the simplest possible robot, which has one rotary joint and an arm.
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.
Is it acceptable that self-driving cars will cause accidents if they kill fewer people than human drivers? When an accident occurs is it a moral or a legal issue?
A more efficient trajectory has a trapezoidal velocity profile.
