Description:
Pinocchio is a C++ library for dynamic computations focusing on robotic, computer animation and biomechanical applications. It is based on the dynamic multi-body computations formalized by Featherstone in his book. The software comes with a python wrapping and vizualisation tool, available separately in the py-pinocchio package. The following algorithms are implemented. * Recursive Newton-Euler algorithm (RNEA, i.e inverse dynamics) * Composite Rigid Body algorithm (CRBA, i.e generalized inertia matrix) * Sparse Cholsky decomposition of the inertia matrix (for constrained forward-dynamics resolution) * Placement Jacobians (i.e application from configuration velocities to end-effector spatial velocities), along with computation of body placements, velocities and accelerations. * Center of mass and its Jacobian The model can be parsed from a URDF format. The following joint models are implemented. * Revolute X, Y, Z (optimized) and unaligned with Cartesian directions * Prismatic X, Y, Z * Sperical (quaternion representation) * Free (i.e. no constraint, for mobile robots like humanoids -- using quaternion representation for the rotation)
