Sine-Constant-Cosine Acceleration : a Traditional Motion-Law

Segment-Parameters

The Segment-Parameters make this motion-law very flexible. It is possible to get many of the Traditional Motion-Laws that are based on Sine and Cosine harmonics.

See Segment-Parameters for Traditional Motion-Laws.


You CAN specify the:

Start-Position (usually flows from the End-Position of the Previous-Segment )

End-Position

You CANNOT specify the:

Start-Velocity, End-Velocity - Zero

Start-Acceleration, End-Acceleration - Zero

Start-Jerk, End-Jerk - Finite


About the SCCA Motion-Law:

The SCCA motion-law is a defined by a sequence of trigonometric segments in acceleration motion-derivative. The motion-law is symmetrical, thus the sequence is:

0.0 ≤ X ≤ 0.5

a.Sine Fraction

b.Constant Fraction

c.Cosine Fraction:

d.Zero Acceleration

0.5 ≤ X ≤ 1

a.Zero Acceleration

b.Cosine Fraction

c.Constant Fraction

d.Sine Fraction


Segment Parameters

a = Total Sine Acceleration Fraction (the acceleration at the start + deceleration at the end)

b = Total Constant Acceleration Fraction

c = Total Cosine Acceleration Fraction

a + b + c + d = 1

Enter only a, b, & c.

d = 1 – (a + b + c)

d = Total Zero Acceleration Fraction

Rules for the segment parameters:

Segment-Parameters may be zero, but not all.

No Segment-Parameter can be negative.

An Example Sine Constant-Cosine Acceleration Law.

Example motion with Sine-Constant-Cosine Motion Law with Segment Parameters: Sine Fraction a=0.333, Constant b=0.333, Cosine Fraction c=0.333

Example motion with Sine-Constant-Cosine Motion Law with Segment Parameters: Sine Fraction a=0.333, Constant b=0.333, Cosine Fraction c=0.333

MT-MotionLaw-SCCA-SegmentParameters

Segment Parameters in the example Motion-Law - see images to left

a = 0.333 ; 33.3% : Sine Acceleration Fraction

b = 0.333 ; 33.3% : Constant Acceleration Fraction

c = 0.333 ; 33.3% : Cosine Acceleration Fraction

∴ d = 1 – a – b – c = 0.0 ; 0% : of the Zero Acceleration Fraction.
