Inverse Dynamics

Daniel Hennes from Maastricht University spent his internship at Willow Garage modeling the dynamics of robotic manipulators using statistical machine learning techniques. He also created a useful visualization utility for ROS/rviz users that enables users to intuitively visualize the joint motor torques of a robot. Please watch the video above for an overview or read the slides below (download pdf) for more technical details. The software is available as open source in the inverse_dynamics and dynamics_markers packages on ROS.org.
