Mathematic for rolling olli

Hi,

I am developing my second robot at the moment.  I'm trying to create LabView source code for moving the two arms to specified 3d points. I was looking in the net for sample code that do the same but I didn't find somthing useable. I'm especially interested in the mathematical background that makes rolling olli move his arms to objects that are detected before with the cam on the top.

 

Can anybody help me?

hi,

 

thank you for answering. Your links look good. The servo controller I have installed is the SCC-32 controller from lynxmotion. I hope that he software is so flexible that I can try it with two arms instead of only one. I will have a lool to the manual. Maybe I can use parts like sequences or makros of the RIOS Software programmatically by LabVie. Do you have any experinences with this software?

THe mathematics you may be looking for are called inverse kinematics. ANd they can be a bit complicated, but are doable. You could google for "inverse kinematics" and there is an example (in Forth) here for a  Lynxmotion 6 joint arm.

I haven't used Labview in a very long time, wouldn't really know where to start, and currently have no access to it.
