Simulation:Modelling Robot-Environment Interaction

  • Ulrich Nehmzow


This chapter discusses the relationship between the interaction of a real robot with its environment, and a numerical model (a simulation) of that interaction. A case study presents a method to achieve high fidelity simulation of one specific robot, interacting with one specific environment.
