I'm trying to do the forward kinematics for a KUKA youbot and am looking for a table of the D-H parameters (so that I can calculate the rotation matrices). Is there a way in Gazebo that will output the rotation matrices directly? Can anyone point me to one (a table of a way to output the matrices)? Thank you!

EDIT: I'm aware of the tf and KDL libraries... the difference is that I'm trying to OUTPUT the matrices (so that I can study them) Maybe via the urdf? is that possible?

I'm not aware of a way to generate DH parameters directly from URDF.

You can however convert your robot the OpenRAVE format (see for example here on how to do that). Then, you can generate a table of DH parameters using OpenRAVE's GetDHParameters function.

Do you have any examples of how to use OpenRAVE? Specifically that GetDHParameters code?

Hi! i finally got the robot.dae and i cannot find an example about how to use the GetDHParameters function in order to get de dh parameters, do you have an example?, or do you have de dh parameters?

@jesus_hdez_b Something like:

dh0, dh1, dh2, dh3, dh4 = planningutils.GetDHParameters(myRobot)

What makes me wonder is the comment: The coordinate systems computed from the DH parameters do not match the OpenRAVE link coordinate systems.

You can check the parameters that I have used in those programs:

It is a systematic exploration of the youBot workspace, based on the DH parameters.
