Uses and Examples of SystemModeler

Path Planning and Control of an Industrial Robot

Path planning has important applications in many areas such as industrial robotics, autonomous systems, and virtual prototyping. This industrial robot has a path-planning algorithm to find the optimal way between two arbitrary points and controllers to adjust the movements of each revolute joint.

To run this example, you'll need
