Detailed Description

Class that defines the simplest robot: a free flying camera.

This free flying camera has 6 dof; 3 in translation and 3 in rotation. It evolves as a gentry robot with respect to a world frame. This class is similar to vpRobotCamera class except that here the position of the robot is provided as the transformation from world frame to camera frame; wMc. This representation is more intuitive than the one implemented in vpRobotCamera where the transformation from camera to world frame is considered; cMw.

For this particular simulated robot, the end-effector and camera frame are confused. That means that the cMe transformation is equal to identity.

The robot jacobian expressed in the end-effector frame $ {^e}{\bf J}_e $ is also set to identity (see get_eJe()).

The following code shows how to control this robot in position and velocity.

#include <visp3/robot/vpSimulatorCamera.h>
int main()
{
robot.getPosition(wMc); // Position of the camera in the world frame
std::cout << "Default position of the camera in the world frame wMc:\n" << wMc << std::endl;
wMc[2][3] = 1.; // Camera frame is 1 meter along z axis in front of the world frame
robot.setPosition(wMc); // Set the new position of the camera in the world frame
std::cout << "New position of the camera in the world frame wMc:\n" << wMc << std::endl;
robot.setSamplingTime(0.100); // Modify the default sampling time to 0.1 second
robot.setMaxTranslationVelocity(1.); // vx, vy and vz max set to 1 m/s
robot.setMaxRotationVelocity(vpMath::rad(90)); // wx, wy and wz max set to 90 deg/s
v = 0;
v[2] = 1.; // set v_z to 1 m/s
// The robot has moved from 0.1 meters along the z axis
robot.getPosition(wMc); // Position of the camera in the world frame
std::cout << "New position of the camera wMc:\n" << wMc << std::endl;
}

Member Function Documentation

void vpSimulatorCamera::get_cVe ( vpVelocityTwistMatrix cVe) const

Get the twist transformation from camera frame to end-effector frame. This transformation allows to compute a velocity expressed in the end-effector frame into the camera frame.

Parameters
cVe: Twist transformation. Here this transformation is equal to identity since camera frame and end-effector frame are at the same location.
Examples:
servoBiclopsPoint2DArtVelocity.cpp.

Definition at line 94 of file vpSimulatorCamera.cpp.

void vpSimulatorCamera::get_eJe ( vpMatrix eJe_)

Get the robot jacobian expressed in the end-effector frame. For that simple robot the Jacobian is the identity.

Parameters
eJe_: A 6 by 6 matrix representing the robot jacobian $ {^e}{\bf J}_e$ expressed in the end-effector frame. Yhis matrix is equal to identity.

void vpSimulatorCamera::setVelocity ( const vpRobot::vpControlFrameType  frame,
const vpColVector v 
)
virtual

Send to the controller a velocity.

Parameters
frame: Control frame type. Only articular (vpRobot::ARTICULAR_FRAME) and camera frame (vpRobot::CAMERA_FRAME) are implemented.
v: Velocity twist to apply to the robot.
  • In the camera frame, this velocity is represented by a twist vector of dimension 6 $ {\bf v} = [v_x v_y v_z w_x w_y w_z]^t $ where $ v_x, v_y, v_z $ are the translation velocities in m/s and $ w_x, w_y, w_z $ the rotation velocities in rad/s applied in the camera frame.
  • In articular, the behavior is the same as in camera frame.

Internally, the exponential map (vpExponentialMap) is used to update the camera position from its velocity after applying the velocity during a sampling time. This sampling time can be set using setSamplingTime().
