Drive a rigid body using coordinate data (motion capture).

2 views (last 30 days)
I have data from the position(x,y,z) of 3 markers attached to a rigid body. Now I would like to use this data to drive a rigid body in simulink.
Anyone with some experience on this can give me some tips on whats the best way to implement this in simulink?
Thanks in advance

In SimMechanics it is possible to provide motion actuation to the joints. You can provide (x,y,z) position as inputs to the joint blocks. The example on the documentation page here illustrates the approach.
