Revision date


Mathematica is used to view and test the movement of a proposed robotic arm. The Mathematica package used to create this animation has not been included, since it is a copyrighted possesion of the author. Data points representing the movement of a robot arm are read from a file and then processed by the Mathematica package to display the action in three dimensions.

NOTE: The images within the notebook use the Mac-specific PICT image format.
