Hi there, I wanted to reoreintate my mobile robot to 90 degree angle (point to North side), given that the initial orientation of the mobile robot is randomly generated, how can I do that? Thanks.
target_angle = pi/2;
orientation = 2*pi*rand(1);
angular_velocity = 0.1;

You mean change
orientation_old = [2*pi*rand(1),0]
orientation_old = 1×2
1.3872 0
to
orientation_new = fliplr(orientation_old)
orientation_new = 1×2
0 1.3872
?

Like this ?
But it's not clear if the rotation should be clockwise or counter-clockwise, I guess.
rng("default")
target_angle = pi/2; % target orientation angle
current_angle = 2*pi*rand(1); % current orientation angle
omega = 0.1;
angle = @(t) current_angle + omega*t*(target_angle - current_angle)/abs(target_angle - current_angle);
t = linspace(0,abs(target_angle - current_angle)/omega,100);
plot(t,angle(t)) ### Categories
