The goal is to move as fast as possible from start position q_begin to end position q_end under given kinematical constraints. The positions can be translational or rotational definitions (i.e., q_begin/q_end is given). In robotics such a movement is called PTP (Point-To-Point). This source block generates the position q(t), the speed qd(t) = der(q), and the acceleration qdd = der(qd) as output. The signals are constructed in such a way that it is not possible to move faster, given the maximally allowed velocity qd_max and the maximally allowed acceleration qdd_max:


If vectors q_begin/q_end have more than 1 element, the output vectors are constructed such that all signals are in the same periods in the acceleration, constant velocity and deceleration phase. This means that only one of the signals is at its limits whereas the others are synchronized in such a way that the end point is reached at the same time instant.

This element is useful to generate a reference signal for a controller which controls, e.g., a drive train, or to drive a flange according to a given acceleration.
