Robot Kinematics: Motion, Kinematics and Dynamics

by   Jiawei Zhang, et al.

This is a follow-up tutorial article of our previous article entitled "Robot Basics: Representation, Rotation and Velocity". For better understanding of the topics covered in this articles, we recommend the readers to first read our previous tutorial article on robot basics. Specifically, in this article, we will cover some more advanced topics on robot kinematics, including robot motion, forward kinematics, inverse kinematics, and robot dynamics. For the topics, terminologies and notations introduced in the previous article, we will use them directly without re-introducing them again in this article. Also similar to the previous article, math and formulas will also be heavily used in this article as well (hope the readers are well prepared for the upcoming math bomb). After reading this article, readers should be able to have a deeper understanding about how robot motion, kinematics and dynamics. As to some more advanced topics about robot control, we will introduce them in the following tutorial articles for readers instead.
