File Information

This model simulates a robot jumping on one leg.
I saw this robot at the MIT Museum last winter and after discussing with few colleagues at The MathWorks™ we decided that it would be cool to have a Simulink® model of this robot.

This submission contains 2 models. They both use Simulink® and SimMechanics™ and the second model uses Simulink® 3D Animation™. This second version of the model allows you to click in the virtual reality scene to bring the robot where you want. This functionality is inspired by the inverted pendulum demo provided with the Simulink 3D animation.

Have fun, and let me know if you have any idea to make it better, or if you decide to add more legs ;-)

Required Products Simscape Multibody
MATLAB release MATLAB 7.8 (R2009a)
Other requirements More interesting with Simulink 3D Animation.

I have a problem with wind turbine mode. I meet the follow message: Failed to load library 'mblibv1' referenced by 'Wind_Turbine/Blade Load/Lift and Drag/Apply Moments/Body Actuator1'

Missing the block diagram 'mblibv1'. Wont compile without it. Please advise.
