Using the Lead Screw Joint Block - Linear Actuator

This example illustrates the use of the Lead Screw Joint block to model a linear actuator. The Lead Screw Joint block converts rotational motion at the Revolute Joint block to translational motion at the four Cylindrical Joint blocks. The translational motion is specified as a motion input to a cylindrical joint and the necessary actuator torque is automatically computed at the revolute joint.
