Simulating robotic arms requires an understanding of joints and kinematics. This is quite different to simulating wheeled robots.
This chapter develops a full simulation of the Lynxmotion L6 Arm. Later in the book, there are applications that can run on either a real L6 arm or the simulated one. See the Arm Mover example in Chapter 12 using VPL. The corresponding service for the real Lynx 6 Arm is available in Chapter 15.
The following applications are included in this Chapter:
