In introduction to robotics, we are going to really cover the foundations of robotics. That is, we are going to look at mathematical models that represent robotic systems in many different ways. In fact, you just saw a simulation of a humanoid robotic system that we are controlling at the same time. If you think about a model that you are going to use for the simulation, you need to represent the kinematics of the system. You need also to be able to actuate the system by going to the motors and finding the right torques to make the robot move..."//
