Description

=================
scikit-kinematics
=================

*scikit-kinematics* primarily contains functions for working with 3D
kinematics, e.g quaternions and rotation matrices.
This includes utilities to read in data from the following IMU-sensors:
- XSens
- xio
- YEI

Compatible with Python 2 and 3.


Dependencies
------------
numpy, scipy, matplotlib, pandas, sympy, easygui

Installation
------------
You can install scikit-kinematics with

pip install scikit-kinematics

and upgrade to a new version with

pip install scikit-kinematics -U

IMUs
====

Analysis of signals from IMUs (intertial-measurement-units).

Data-Import
-----------
- imyus.import_data ... Read in Rate and stored 3D parameters from a variety of IMUs

- sensors.xio ... Import data recorded with xio-systems
- sensors.xsens ... Import data recorded with XSens-systems
- sensors.yei ... Import data recorded with YEI-systems

MARG Systems
------------
- imus.calc_QPos ... Calculate orientation and position, from angular velocity and linear acceleration
- imus.kalman_quat ... Calculate orientation from IMU-data using an Extended Kalman Filter.

- imus.IMU ... Class for working with data from IMUs
- imus.IMU.calc_orientation ... calculate orientation
- imus.IMU.calc_position ... calculate position
- imus.IMU.setData ... set the properties of an IMU-object
- imus.MadgwickAHRS ... Class for calculating the 3D orientation with the Madgwick-algorithm
- imus.MahonyAHRS ... Class for calculating the 3D orientation with the Mahony-algorithm

Markers
=======

Analysis of signals from video-based marker-recordings of 3D movements

- markers.analyze3Dmarkers ... Kinematic analysis of video-basedrecordings of 3D markers
- markers.movement_from_markers ... Calculation of joint-movements from 3D marker positions

Quaternions
===========

Note that all these functions work with single quaternions and quaternion vectors,
as well as with arrays containing these.

Quaternion class
----------------

- quat.Quaternion ... class, including overloading for multiplication and
division (e.g. \"quatCombined = quat1 * quat2\"), import and export

Functions for working with quaternions
--------------------------------------

- quat.q_conj ... Conjugate quaternion
- quat.q_inv ... Quaternion inversion
- quat.q_mult ... Quaternion multiplication
- quat.q_scalar ... Extract the scalar part from a quaternion
- quat.q_vector ... Extract the vector part from a quaternion
- quat.unit_q ... Extend a quaternion vector to a unit quaternion.

Conversion routines - quaternions
---------------------------------

- quat.calc_angvel ... Calculates the velocity in space from quaternions
- quat.calc_quat ... Calculate orientation from a starting orientation and angular velocity.
- quat.convert ... Convert quaternion to corresponding rotation matrix or Gibbs vector
- quat.deg2quat ... Convert number or axis angles to quaternion vectors
- quat.scale2deg ... Convert quaternion to corresponding axis angle



Rotation Matrices
=================

Definition of rotation matrices
-------------------------------

- rotmat.R ... 3D rotation matrix for rotation about a coordinate axis

Conversion Routines - rotation matrices
---------------------------------------
- rotmat.convert ... Convert a rotation matrix to the corresponding quaternion
- rotmat.sequence ... Calculation of Euler, Fick, Helmholtz, ... angles

Symbolic matrices
-----------------

- rotmat.R_s() ... symbolix matrix for rotation about a coordinate axis

For example, you can e.g. generate a Fick-matrix, with

>>> R_Fick = R_s(2, \'theta\') * R_s(1, \'phi\') * R_s(0, \'psi\')

Vectors
=======

Routines for working with vectors
These routines can be used with vectors, as well as with matrices containing a vector in each row.

- vector.normalize ... Vector normalization
- vector.project ... Projection of one vector onto another one
- vector.GramSchmidt ... Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization of three points
- vector.q_shortest_rotation ... Quaternion indicating the shortest rotation from one vector into another.
- vector.rotate_vector ... Rotation of a vector

Interactive Data Analysis
=========================

- viewer.ts ... interactive viewer for time series data
