Robot dynamics analysis in ADAMS, using robot assembly CAD model

Robot dynamics analysis in ADAMS, using robot assembly CAD model

(OP)
Hello dear colleagues smile

I want to simulate the dynamics of a humanoid robot for which the CAD models is built using SolidWorks, I could export the files to ADAMS but the problems faces me when i want to assign motion to the robot joints to make it walk.
My objective is to give the robot joints the human joints range to walk like a human, and then I measure the inertia forces of the parts to find the Zero Moment Point (point at which the moment of all forces is zero) to enable the robot to walk in stable way.


How to enter the joint values so, it will wake like a human? and should I make a ground part for it to move on?
I also need to know if ADAMS is the optimum software for this type of simulation or you would like to recommend me some other software based on your experience.
and any further guidance is welcome.

Thank you.

RE: Robot dynamics analysis in ADAMS, using robot assembly CAD model

yes you will need a ground plane. ADAMS is a reasonable choice, the main issue will be communicating with your control program, there are tutorials on that. An alternative approach would be to use Simulink.

Cheers
