We can plug these numbers into the equation for x(t) and plot the predicted results. The robot should follow the model’s behavior if the model truly does mimic the design of the robot. Let’s tackle the second goal. HOW TO CHARACTERIZE THE ROBOT’S PERFORMANCE AND KNOW WHICH DESIGN PARAMETERS TO ALTER Figures 2-12, 2-13, 2-16, and 2-17 were made using Excel spreadsheets. They show the predicted behavior of the model’s second-order system. The figures were made specifically to show how we can guide the design and make the robot behave the way we want it to.

It will bounce up and down with a fairly fixed frequency and look like the sine wave in Figure 2-9. This illustrates the resonant frequency of the second-order system, which we will later call v. The frequency v is measured in radians per second where there are 2ϫ␲ radians in a single cycle. 2. We know that if we put a bigger weight on the spring, the weight will bounce up and down slower than the lighter weight does. To try this, hang two weights from the rubberband. This illustrates how v decreases with the mass m (see Figure 2-10).

Html). html#intro. ■ As another example of problems that cannot, and perhaps should not, be solved, consider whether your robot should be male, female, or genderless.
