ARM TUTORIAL 2
Arm Tutorial 2 project build order
As you may noticed all robot arms in the arm tutorials have n use the notion 'end of arm' (EOA). As the last element of the ro manipulator is called end-effector. An end-effector has usually called tool center point (TCP).
So for an application point of view it makes sense to transform cartesian coordinates with angular orientation and vice versa. provides such transformations.
Fig.1: Direct vs. inverse kinematic transformation
The transformation from the robot joint angles to a cartesian co called 'forward kinematic transformation' (Fig. 1). Mathematical reason for it being easy is that we have no multiple solutions. W and calculate from one frame to the next. The backward transformation from a Cartesian coordinate with angle configuration is called 'inverse kinematic transformation' the following picture, multiple arm configurations are possible f

This impacts the complexity on the application des E. minimized joint state changes which implie Coding for Arm Tutorial 2: In arm tutorial 2.
This request is sent to the ‘_transformationPort’. It starts with the calculation of the general transformation matrix Calculation of the transformation matrix for the kinematic c GetTransformationMatrix) This method computes the translation matrix frame to fram Hartenberg parameter set is assigned to holding values for Hartenberg parameter sets for all joints in Fig. which represe request arrives at the ‘GetInverseKinematikHandler’ of the serv The calculation of the inverse kinematic inside this handler as kinematic is shown in the following sections. 1 are listed in Ta Joint Rotation .
Through a call of the method GetTrans .Fig. We start with the calculation of the transformation matrix with the tool frame . 2: Robot arm configuration Table1: Denavit-Hartenber Using  and  we get the complete transformation from fra Direct kinematics calculation (file class dirKinematik. metho This method computes the position in cartesian coordinates an TCP.

not its position. Hence at first we have to compute the position of but the orientation of its subsequent frame. 3.axis of the rotation sub matrix of Two solutions and yield to the same position For the sake of clarity we use a simple geometric approach fo Hence we didn't consider all special cases that might result in function.4: Joint angle 1 Angle can be calculated from the position projection of fram see Fig.Joint 1 angle Fig. As shown influences just the orientation of the TCP. An improvement to the algorithm is Joint angle 3 . The unit vector : points to the . 4 and 6. Throu position vector . We use this propert robot arm we have three twist joints: Joint 1.
Hence vector : from the translation part of We compute angle through the law of cosine: Finally knowledge of offers two possible solutions for Joint angle 2: .Fig. As shown in Fig. 4. not its position.5: Joint angle 3 Via the knowledge of orientation of frame we get angle which in turns lead ca advantage of a twist joint property. the angu .
Therefore we transform matrix of : Because is orthogonal we get its inverse through its trans Fig. 5. angle vector can be computed via and . 5): Finally all solutions for come out through: . For an easy calculation of we want to look at from has an x and z component.As shown in Fig.6: Joint angle 2 We get and through (see Fig.
Joint angle 5: Joint angle 5 can be calculated through the inner product betw Fig. Using the prior r Two arm configurations yield to the same position for frame transformation for both situations resulting in and Now we extract the rotation sub matrix from frame 4: which column .7: Joint angle 5 The orientation of vector Matrix position of  and : can be retrieved from the rotation can be calculated via the angle results we already h therefore we assume .
With the column vector of we finally compute all solut Joint angles 4 and 6: The total rotation can be composed as follows: Because matrix is orthogonal its inverse can also be calcul Matrix is composed by three sequential rotations around Hence we state: Again we have to calculate two matrices to retrieve all possible .
Using the relation and of : angle Now all possible solutions for can be calculated: The same way we get all solution for through the elements As you can see in Fig. 6. for case the mean value of and and unlimited solutions a is assigned to and .
Finally all angles are wrapped to the closed interval At last the GetInverseKinematikHandler selects one of the eigh possible arm configuration prior joint angle states a quality function value into account: The arm configuration with the smallest quality function value b configuration: Linear coordinate transformation : = Basis vectors : = Transformation matrix of the new coordinate system Coordinate transformation matrix: Coordinate transformation: Orthogonality: .
