Numerical Methods in Kinematics

  • Reza N. Jazar


By increasing the number of links, the analytic calculation in robotics becomes a tedious task and numerical calculations are needed. We review the most frequent needed numerical analysis in robotics.


Jacobian Matrix Linear Algebraic Equation Matrix Inversion Revolute Joint Nonlinear Algebraic Equation 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
