Motion Designer Tutorial 4 – Importing A Trajectory

In many instances, an exact motion profile must be generated to simulate a dynamic environment for sensor or component testing. Inertial navigation devices such as gyros or accelerometers, tracking or beam-steering gimbals, as well as crash sensors and roll-over sensors, are meant to measure angular or linear motion events. To properly test these devices, they must be put through motion trajectories that simulate real-world applications, which is no trivial task. Aerotech’s Motion Designer is an easy to use software GUI for generating or importing motion trajectories, and running and then evaluating the trajectory. Motion Designer allows customers the ability to fabricate and run simulated trajectories by generating position, velocity, acceleration, and time profile points, and to download them to the motion controller.
