These models show how to build a throwing mechanism such that a ball can be targeted to a certain goal. Simscape and Simscape Multibody has been used to build the complete system and finally, PID controller has been used to control the trajectory of the ball.
All demos in this entry reinforce the concepts reviewed in the Modeling Pneumatic Robot Actuators series.
The models in this submission use following libraries:
1) Simscape Multibody Contact Force Library
2) Simscape Multibody Multiphysics Library
3) Simscape Multibody Parts Library
For convenience, local copies of these libraries have been included with this submission.
To install the latest version of these libraries, you can find
