# Matlab quaternion toolbox

The Robotics Toolbox is MATLAB Toolbox software that supports research and teaching into arm-type and mobile robotics. Jul 26, 2009 Version 1. All rights reserved. Many Matlab operators and functions are overloaded to work for real quaternion and complexified quaternion matrices. % % 2 if Q is Nx4 and only the rows .

September 2015: QTFM release 2. m is a matlab class that implements quaternion mathematical operations, 3 dimensional rotations, transformations of rotations among several representations, and numerical propagation of Euler's equations for rotational motion. Consequently, if q represents a rotation, then: q(1) = v1*sin(phi/2)The toolbox provides functions to (see the related journal article: http://www. sourceforge. For purposes of these tools, a quaternion, q, is just a four element vector where q(1:3) is the "imaginary" or "vector" portion of the hypercomplex number, and q(4) is the "real" or "scalar" portion. % ISQ returns a value accordingly: % % 0 if Q is not a quaternion or vector of quaternions: % has more than 2 dimensions or neither dimension is of length 4 % % 1 if the component quaternions of Q are column vectors: % Q is 4xN, where The toolbox provides functions to (see the related journal article: http://www.

Version 2 of the toolbox adds support for octonions. For the two-link arm, only the end-effector position fporward function qtype=isnormq(q) % ISQ(Q) checks to see if Q is a normalized quaternion or set of quaternions. For both types, the user can choose to use rotations and translation dual quaternions, or to use screw motion dual quaternions. % Release: $Name: quaternions-1_3 $ % $Revision: 1.
