05.03.1 Chapter 05.03 Newton’s Divided Difference Interpolation – More Examples Computer Engineering Example 1 A robot arm with a rapid laser scanner is doing a quick quality check on holes drilled in a " 10 " 15 rectangular plate. The centers of the holes in the plate describe the path the arm needs to take, and the hole centers are located on a Cartesian coordinate system (with the origin at the bottom left corner of the plate) given by the specifications in Table 1.

05.03.2 Chapter 05.03 If the laser is traversing from 00 . 2 x to 25 . 4 x in a linear path, what is the value of y at 00 . 4 x using Newton’s divided difference method of interpolation and a first order polynomial? Solution For linear interpolation, the value of y is given by ) ( ) ( 0 1 0 x x b b x y Since we want to find the value of y at 00 . 4 x , using the two points 00 . 2 x and 25 . 4 x , then , 00 . 2 0 x 2 . 7 ) ( 0 x y , 25 . 4 1 x 1 . 7 ) ( 1 x y gives ) ( 0 0 x y b 2 . 7 0 1 0 1 1 ) ( ) ( x x x y x y b 00 . 2 25 . 4 2 . 7 1 . 7 044444 . 0 Hence ) ( ) ( 0 1 0 x x b b x y ), 00 . 2 ( 044444 . 0 2 . 7 x 25 . 4 00 . 2 x At 00 . 4 x ) 00 . 2 00 . 4 ( 044444 . 0 2 . 7 ) 00 . 4 ( x . in 1111 . 7 If we expand ), 00 . 2 ( 044444 . 0 2 . 7 ) ( x x y 25 . 4 00 . 2 x we get , 044444 . 0 2889 . 7 ) ( x x y 25 . 4 00 . 2 x This is the same expression that was obtained with the direct method. Example 2 A robot arm with a rapid laser scanner is doing a quick quality check on holes drilled in a " 10 " 15 rectangular plate. The centers of the holes in the plate describe the path the arm needs to take, and the hole centers are located on a Cartesian coordinate system (with the origin at the bottom left corner of the plate) given by the specifications in Table 2.
