Modeling Inverse Kinematics: Improving Actuation Control in Industrial Robots


From small task robots to large industrial manipulators, an efficient solution to the inverse kinematics problem is a necessary part of the actuation control system. Using multiple examples, this 30-minute Webinar reviews the typical challenges and computational demands of numeric solutions and compares how the use of modern simulation tools can provide modeling options that reduce effort and make it simpler to connect with control systems. Discover how these techniques can be applied and are leading to innovation in actuation control strategies in industrial robots and manipulators.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How various types of inverse kinematics problems can be solved
  • Where best to apply modeling to overcome the computational demands of complex engineering control systems
  • How simulation can work with your existing toolchain to speed up product development of industrial machines

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
