%EULERANGLESTOROTATION3D Convert 3D Euler angles to 3D rotation matrix
% MAT = eulerAnglesToRotation3d(PHI, THETA, PSI)
% Creates a rotation matrix from the 3 euler angles PHI THETA and PSI,
% given in degrees, using the 'XYZ' convention (local basis), or the
% 'ZYX' convention (global basis). The result MAT is a 4-by-4 rotation
% matrix in homogeneous coordinates.
% PHI: rotation angle around Z-axis, in degrees, corresponding to the
% 'Yaw'. PHI is between -180 and +180.
% THETA: rotation angle around Y-axis, in degrees, corresponding to the
% 'Pitch'. THETA is between -90 and +90.
% PSI: rotation angle around X-axis, in degrees, corresponding to the
% 'Roll'. PSI is between -180 and +180.
% These angles correspond to the "Yaw-Pitch-Roll" convention, also known
% as "TaitBryan angles".
% The resulting rotation is equivalent to a rotation around X-axis by an
% angle PSI, followed by a rotation around the Y-axis by an angle THETA,
% followed by a rotation around the Z-axis by an angle PHI.
% That is:
% ROT = Rz * Ry * Rx;
% MAT = eulerAnglesToRotation3d(ANGLES)
% Concatenates all angles in a single 1-by-3 array.
