Flexible Joint MapleSim Model - Flexible Joint S-Function - MapleSim Model Gallery

Flexible Joint

This system is similar in nature to the control problems encountered in large geared robot joints where flexibility is exhibited in the gearbox. A rigid beam is mounted on a flexible joint that rotates via a DC motor.

Based on the Quanser Flexible Joint application.
