Multibody Simulation - 2011

[back to my start page]

Multibody Simulation is an undergraduate course offered annually at Örebro University.


Course description

In this course we are going to focus on modeling and simulation of the behavior of robotic manipulator systems. Students will deal with robot manipulator kinematics and dynamics. We are going to discuss ways to describe the state of a system, rigid body motion, kinematic constraints, as well as alternative methods for the formulation and solution of the equations of motion. The main simulation environment will be Matlab (and Simulink). The course will finish with a final project, where each student will develop a simulator (in Matlab or C++) for the dynamic behavior of a n-link open-loop manipulator. Grades will be based on the quality of the simulator and an oral examination.
