Vertical jumps in a turnout (TJ) and a neutral hip position (NJ) performed by 12 classical female ballet dancers were analysed through motion capture, recording of the ground reaction forces, and inverse dynamics analysis.
Acceleration of the CM, and therefore net force, can be obtained using the inverse dynamics approach defined by Whittlesey and Robertson (2004) as 'the process by which forces and moments of force are indirectly determined from the kinematics and and inertial properties of moving bodies'.
The author has organized the main body of his text in nine chapters the devoted to the vector loop method of kinematic analysis, rolling contacts in kinematic analysis, kinematic coefficients, the inverse dynamics problem in machine dynamics, joint friction in machine dynamics, the power equation, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
The algorithm that my group at the University of Texas at Austin has developed is called Whole-Body Operational Space Control (WBOSC) and at its core, it uses floating base inverse dynamics as the robot model.
This study involved using inverse dynamics to calculate the forces exerted by bipedal jerboas when jumping vertically, as well as the relative contributions of individual muscles and tendons to the jump.
The topics covered include simultaneous localization and map building, kinematic and dynamic equations for a space robot, a finite element method solution scheme for controlling inverse dynamics, a "Neuro-Fuzzy" system for the detection and classification of horizontal traffic signs, a biological inspired swarm intelligence based coordination algorithm for multi-robot systems, a robotics architecture for mobile service robots, and a prototype robotic system designed for playing the game of pool.
