Simple robot arm simulator

Greetings all!

One of my favorite things about Panda is how easy it is to put together a simple, visual simulation to test an idea. For the FIRST Robotics competition this year, I programmed a very simple robot arm simulator (pendulum physics and a PID controller) that teachers can use to demonstrate basic principles of feedback control. It took about three hours total to put together :slight_smile:

If you’d like to try it, the simulator is located at Let me know what you think!

Take care,

rah lovely i’ll test tonight.

It does remind me of my first scientific code on Texas Instrument TI92.
It was a reverse kinematic simulator for robot arm.
Given a robot with up to 6 Segments and the corresponding freedom axis, and given an initial position and a target position of the “hand”, it was calculating the required matrix for each segment to the target

Very helpful in weekly examinations :slight_smile:)
