|Title||Virtual Mechanical Models|
In Robotics and Control Systems courses, students create mathematical models of systems, then design controllers to make them perform tasks. This is done using Matlab/Simulink which is a mathematical tool that displays results using x-y plots.
Matlab has a number of shortcomings.
In this project, SimulationX is used to develop virtual mechanisms.
A SimulationX model gives the impression that students are controlling an actual robot with realistic mechanical dynamics and results that are displayed in 3D animations.
