Using simscape multibody - Is it possible to simulate the body motion without any external forces acting?
I am attempting to simulate the motion of a human arm. My goal is to determine the angular rates of the upper limb segments e.g. humerus relative to thorax.
Using 3D Rotation theory was proving difficult and I was hoping I could build a simulation and simply input the rotation matrices I had derived in my MATLAB program. I then intended to devise kinematic equations to compute approximate joint torques. The data I have used for this method is from 3D motion capture data in water - digitization of marker points in 3D space.
My simulation is very simple. Currently, Gravity is the only external force acting on the model.
No joint torques have been applied.
