Inverse Kinematics is the calculation of the required angles for a robot arm in order to reach a given target.
This is very useful in robotics as you usually know where you want the arm to go to but you don’t know the angles that will active this position.
A IK module is now included in FlowStone!
There is an example file on the fourum

See how the Phidgets accelerometer gyro board can be used to control FlowStone applications. In this case it is controlling a real-time synthesizer (Also made in FlowStone) but it could be used to control any Robotic type application.
