Implement Muscle Actuator

Discussion in 'Simulation' started by Chris Saliba, Sep 15, 2016.

  1. Hi,

    I'm working on implementing a model using biological muscles as actuators. In the mujoco.h header file, there are definitions for mju_muscleFVL and mju_musclePassive functions. Most of the inputs to these functions make sense, but some I'm not sure of - the values in the prm input for example. I couldn't find a detailed description of the functions in the current documentation. What are the appropriate inputs to these functions?

    Thanks in advance,

    Chris

    These functions are just placeholders. They don't do anything for now. The plan is to implement a default muscle model at some point.
     
  3. Ok, thanks for the quick reply.
     
  4. Hello,

    Is there a default muscle model available now??
    I am very interested to use it in my project for lower limb model with powered exoskeleton.

    There is no default muscle model. I will probably add one in version 1.60 due by the end of May.
