V-REP: Katana Robotic System Simulation Exercise
This video demonstrates the simulation of the Katana robot equipped with a paint nozzle. The paint nozzle disperses color with a gradient (center of the jet slightly brighter). All parameters can be fully customized (color, gradient, dispersion area, density, etc.). The simulation was set-up by simply copy, pasting and attaching the paint nozzle to the robot (no code modification is required, and the simulation is directly fully functional). The cables are handled through inverse kinematics (endpoints constraint, "desire of straightness" constraint, and obstacle avoidance constraint). Cable handling doesn't require a single line of code. The original CAD model is courtesy of Neuronics AG.
Run time - 0:37 minutes.
