Inverse Kinematics

Manipulator inverse kinematics, kinematic constraints

Inverse kinematics (IK) is used to determine joint configurations of a robot model to achieve a desired end-effect position. Robot kinematic constraints are specified in the `rigidBodyTree` robot model based on the transformation between joints. You can also specify external constraints, like an aiming constraint for a camera arm or a Cartesian bounding box on a certain rigid body link. Specify parameters for these constraints with the Robot Constraints objects and pass them to a `generalizedInverseKinematics` object.
