Reusable motion synthesis using state-space controllers
The use of physically-based techniques for computer animation can result in realistic object motion. The price paid for physically-based motion synthesis lies in increased computation and information requirements. We introduce a new approach to realistic motion specification based on state-space controllers. A user specifies a motion by defining a goal in terms of a set of destination states. A statespace controller is then constructed, which provides an optimalcontrol solution that guides the object from an arbitrary starting configuration to a goal. Motions are optimized with respect to time and control energy. Because controllers are specified in terms of destination states only, it is easy to reuse the same controller to produce different motions (from different starting states), or to create a complex sequence of motions by concatenating several controllers. An implementation of state-space controllers is presented, in which realistic motions can be produced in real time. Several...
