  • Publication number: 20210312109
    Abstract: A cable driving a large system such as cable driven machines, cable cars or tendons in a human or robot is typically modeled as a large number of small segments that are connected via joints. The two main difficulties with this model are satisfying the inextensibility constraint and handling the typically large mass ratio between the segments and the objects they connect. This disclosure introduces an effective approach to solving these problems. The introduced approach simulates the effect of a cable using a new type of distance constraint called ‘cable joint’ that changes both its attachment points and its rest length dynamically. The introduced approach models a cable connecting a series of objects, e.g., components of a robot, as a sequence of cable joints, reducing the complexity of the simulation from the order of the number of segments in the cable to the number of connected objects.

  • Patent number: 11113861
    Abstract: This disclosure presents a process to generate one or more video frames through guiding the movements of a target object in an environment controlled by physics-based constraints. The target object is guided by the movements of a reference object from a motion capture (MOCAP) video clip. As disturbances, environmental factors, or other physics-based constraints interfere with the target object mimicking the reference object. A tracking agent, along with a corresponding neural network, can be used to compensate and modify the movements of the target object. Should the target object diverge significantly from the reference object, such as falling down, a recovery agent, along with a corresponding neural network, can be used to move the target object back into an approximate alignment with the reference object before resuming the tracking process.
