1 In order to obtain the correct motion using the torques, do I then use only the torque data from the region of time that provides me with the correct motion and basically interpolate between the torques to obtain a smoother motion for the full time I require?? It seems like a good idea now but Iâm testing only one link of a robot, if I add all the links and a more complex motion I donât know if it will still make sense to do this.
2 The reason I need the torques is because I need to simulate the system in response to an external force. If I specify the motions in inverse dynamics mode (or even forward dynamics); it will simply give me back exactly the motion I require regardless of the external force. So I basically want to apply my motion (WITHOUT the external force) in inverse dynamics mode to obtain the torques. Then I apply the same torques to the model (WITH the external force) to see what happens to the motion. Is this the right way to do it or is there another way?? And if it is indeed the right way, then this brings us back to question 1 above.
I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance. Joe.
