Application: robotic-arm-kinematics

This graphical application allows creating models of robotic manipulators by introducing the corresponding Denavit-Hartenberg (DH) parameters. It’s a useful tool for teaching and learning the basics of robotic arm kinematics. As the rest of MRPT apps, it is included in source and binary packages in the download page.

The main C++ class behinds this app is mrpt::kinematics::CKinematicChain

The following video demonstrates the program in action and explains the meaning of the DH parameters:

And this is another version with subtitles in Spanish:

    I’ve jsut downloaded and installed mrpt (from Ubuntu repo) and I can’t find this app. Is robotic-arm-kinematics has been removed ? Can we find it somewhere ?

    I’ve installed MRPT via the Ubuntu package, but how can I start this application? Do I need to compile it myself? Is there a tutorial on this?

      Just typing robotic-arm-kinematics on a terminal should launch it.
