ASSIGNMENT 2 For questions 1 and 2 we consider the unicycle shown below: Figure 1: Unicycle whose two inputs are the steering rate u 1 = ˙ φ and the heading velocity u 2 = r w ˙ θ . The kinematic model is given by ˙ q = ˙ x ˙ y ˙ φ = 0 0 1 u 1 + cos φ sin φ 0 u 2 Question 1: Chained form The change of coordinates is given by: x 1 = - φ x 2 = x cos φ + y sin φ x 3 = - x sin φ + y cos φ while the input transformation is, in turn, v 1 = - u 1 v 2 = ( - x sin φ + y cos φ ) u 1 + u 2 1. Compute ˙ x 1 , ˙ x 2 and ˙ x 3 2. Show that the new state vector combined to the new inputs corresponds to one-chain system

Unformatted text preview: 2. Use sinusoidal inputs to drive the unicycle to the final goal in 10 seconds. 3. Retrieve x and y coordinates and plot the x-y graph showing the steering of the unicycle Question 3: Piecewise Constant Inputs We consider the following chained-form system: ˙ q 1 = u 1 ˙ q 2 = u 2 ˙ q 3 = q 2 u 1 ˙ q 4 = q 3 u 1 (1) Write an algorithm that computes the piecewise constant inputs needed to drive the system from any initial configuration: q 1 q 2 q 3 q 4 to the final configuration: q 1 f q 2 f q 3 f q 4 f in T seconds. For verification purposes, to steer the system from [ 4 0 1 1 ] T to [ 0 0 0 0 ] T in 12 seconds the inputs must be as follows: v 1 =-1 3 , v 21 = 15 64 , v 22 =-9 32 , v 23 = 3 64...
