Editor's Note: This file was selected as MATLAB Central Pick of the Week

MATLAB and Simulink tools for the study and simulation of robots: arm-type robot manipulators and mobile robots. For robot manipulators, functions include kinematics, trajectory generation, dynamics and control. For mobile robots, functions include path planning, kinodynamic planning, localization, map building and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM).

The Toolbox makes strong use of classes to represent robots and such things as sensors and maps. It includes Simulink models to describe the evolution of arm or mobile robot state over time for a number of classical control strategies. The Toolbox also provides functions for manipulating and converting between datatypes such as vectors, rotation matrices, unit-quaternions, quaternions, homogeneous transformations and twists which are necessary to represent position and orientation in 2- and 3-dimensions.
