Abstract

The development and simulation of robots that have athletic skill close to human beings is very much useful for testing and developing sport goods. This paper discusses the development and simulation of a tennis robot. The developed tennis robot has two joints controlled by a servolike human muscle, and its characteristics are satisfying and similar to a human. The simulation for the whole system including racket, ball and tennis robot is set up. The simulation results agree well with experimental results.
