This is a set of Simulink models to help our engineering-design students get started on their own models of robot acrobats (acrobots).
Intro Video: https://youtu.be/o1ZtuGsNlb0
This is a framework to begin a model of the flight of an acrobot (robot-acrobat) called Stickman. Modeled after the Disney Imagineering Stickman Project https://la.disneyresearch.com/publication/stickman/
Set up for engineering design students to begin to build their own Simulink models as they develop their acrobot projects
Second video (Simscape Model):
Latest Program: Optimizes release time for either time-of-flight or distance traveled. This is a basic center-of-mass problem.
