EZPhysics.org which is a system that exposes all of ODE's features through a GUI and integrates ODE with Ogre3D (i wrote it back in 2003 as a way to learn these systems and to simulate robots in real-time) has been revamped. The code is now compatible with the latest versions of Ogre and ODE.

Progress can be seen on the blog. http://actuated.wordpress.com

Another piece of blog talks about the use of RoBoard connected with CM5 over FTDI.

EZPhysics (Ogre3D + ODE real-time simulator) is progressing nicely.
you can already download and compile from SVN.
a pre-packaged zip with executable and redistributables will be available soon.

The ActuatedCharacter project is progressing steadily. There are a couple of stable firmwares for AX12 and CM5 and Linux that provide a foundation for fixed frame-rate control of the servos using direct PWM control ar PD control including speed control (not only position control).
The embedded linux can run Matlab code and do the closed loop at some 200Hz. Works with both the real robot and ezphysics.org simulated robot.

Anyone interested in a rigorous approach to understanding every aspect of the behavior of the robot and being able to control it using optimal/robust controler such as DLQR should check out recent developments at http://actuated.wordpress.com

EZPhysics Simulator: Stable and Documentation now available

Hi all

EZPhysics is a 3D physics simulator, part of the Actuated Character project ( http://actuated.wordpress.com/ ) that RoboSavvy has been developing.

The software has been receiving a significant overhaul and improvement and has now reached a stage where is is mature enough and documentation is available for GA.

One interesting bit is that we particularly like is that you can a full simulation or interface/control the simulation feeding external data over TCP/IP (for use with Matlab for example).

As I mentioned, the project is open source and all resources are available here http://ezphysics.org

Regards
Pedro
