The equivalence of the scene graphs in Figs. 10 can be verified by obtaining the combined final transformation matrices applied to the leaf nodes. In a scene graph, transformations are combined using a recursive procedure starting at the root node, accumulating transformations at internal nodes and ending at object nodes. This process will be explained in detail in the next section. 38 3 Scene Graphs World Group-1 Sun R(fE) I Earth Group-2 T(dE)R(fM) T(dE)R(qE) Moon T(dM)R(qM) Fig. 10 The scene graph in Fig.

The inverse of this matrix, (AFG) 1 , transforms a point from world space to camera space. This matrix is called the view matrix. The combined model-view matrix that transforms the object’s local coordinates to camera space is therefore given by (AFG) 1 ABCDE, or equivalently, G 1 F 1 BCDE. An upward tree traversal from a leaf node to root can be quickly performed if every node has a pointer to its parent. On the other hand, a downward traversal would typically require a recursive algorithm similar to the depth-first search method.

The arm is driven by feeding joint angles to the controllers. Some constraints may be applied to the joint angles based on the application requirements. For example, a robotic arm for welding or painting may require the end effector (denoted by Link-5 in Fig. 3) to be kept in a horizontal position. It may also be required to have a camera attached to the end effector to obtain a clear perspective of the surrounding scene from its viewpoint. The graphical rendering of the scene as viewed from the position of Link-5 can be obtained by adding the camera node to the group node Group-4 as shown in Fig.
