Previous: Kinematics and Inverse
- The study of motion independent of the
forces that cause the motion. Includes position, velocity, acceleration.
- Forward kinematics:
- The determination of the
of all the links in an articulated model given the
of the root of the model and all the transformations between links.
- Forward kinematics is a necessity for skeletal keyframed animation
- Easy to implement.
- Inverse kinematics:
- The derivation of the motion of intermediate
links in an articulated body given the motion of some key links.
