Maximum distance throwing simulation and analysis

Abstract

This paper proposes a numerical framework that generates maximum distance throwing motions and the associated dynamic results for a whole-body human mechanism. Multibody dynamic models of actuation, ground reaction force, and balance are incorporated into an optimization formulation. The algorithm outputs include the motion, required actuator torques, release parameters, and object projectile. Realistic human-like motions of maximum distance throwing are generated, which demonstrate valid kinematic and dynamic cause-effect relations. The maximum distance throw is associated with active movement of the arm and torso with larger ranges of motion.
