Getting started with iDyn
In this page you'll find pointers to anything useful regarding the iDyn library. For more details about the library or its use, ask Serena Ivaldi or Matteo Fumagalli. The library is still under development! So if you have suggestions...
- The code documentation is available in the official iCub documentation site.
- A short introduction to iDyn is available in the official iCub tutorial site.
- A more detailed document describing the library structure and the computations performed to retrieve forces and torques is available here (pdf - draft july 2010).
- Some tutorial examples are available in the iCub repository, in: icub\main\src\libraries\iDyn\tutorials

Sandini. “Computing robot internal/external wrenches by means of inertial, tactile and F/T sensors: theory and implementation on the iCub”. Proc. of the 11th IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots - HUMANOIDS’11. October 2011, Bled, Slovenia.
In this short demo, iDyn is used to find the external force at the end-effector, arising during contacts with the environment (table, object, human hand...).
