Unless otherwise indicated, all the problems are from the course text, Craig, Introduction to Robotics. Unless otherwise indicated, each problem is worth 10 points.

  1. 3.11 Also compute the forward kinematics.
  2. 3.16 Also compute the forward kinematics.
  3. 3.21 Also compute the forward kinematics.
  4. Write a computer program to numerically compute the inverse kinematics for the three link manipulator shown in Craig, Figure 3.29. Hint: using Mathematica or Matlab is probably the easiest way to do this.
