Hydraulic Stewart Platform

This is a high-fidelity six degree of freedom (x, y, z, pitch, roll, yaw) model of a Stewart platform (hexapod). In addition to the basic multibody physical model, it implements hydraulic actuators, and PID controller with inverse kinematic path planning.
This model is ideal for use in the engineering classroom to teach fundamental concepts.
