Homework 02 - Denavit-Hartenberg Convention


  1. Describe the kinematics of Motoman MA1400 manipulator using its dimensions in Denavit-Hartenberg convention as explained in 03.
  2. Implement a simulator of the manipulator in MATLAB Robotic Toolbox.



to add the robotic toolbox to Matlab path. A manipulator with rotational links can be created by

>>L{1} = link( [ alpha, a, 0, d, 0, theta_offset ],'standard');
>>L{2} = ....
>>r = robot( L, 'PRO', 'name', '' );

and visualized by
