Is the iTaSC repository public yet?

All,

I was wondering if the iTaSC repository is open for lurkers, like myself :).
I have noticed that there has been some recent activity in the iTaSC wiki
[1], but there is not yet enough information to answer my curiosity. I'm
mostly interested in knowing how to specify constraints between frames.

An ex-intern of us (Marcus Liebhardt) implemented a motion retargeting
system [2] for teleoperating our robot from mocap data, and I'd like to
evaluate the use of iTaSC for specifying the constraints in this problem.
The constraints are few and simple: 6dof pose tracking, 3dof position or
orientation tracking only, and 2dof (parallel) axis tracking.

I appreciate any pointers,

Best,

Adolfo.

For motion retargeting, I would like to use _dynamic_ constraints between
the demo system and the target system, not just the kinematic ones that the
current iTaSC code supports... Wouldn't you?

Herman,

The scope of my inquiry was limited to how I could specify a problem we have
already formulated (kinematic constraints only) by using iTaSC, and maybe

convince myself to give it a try. Nick was kind enough to send me a
presentation in a private email (size too large for the ML), which got me
going.

As to your question, dynamic constraints do make sense in the context of
motion retargeting. I just want to approach the problem one step at a time
(and one intern at a time ;) ). Maybe you could develop a bit more your
reply by mentioning which dynamic constraints would make sense to you, so I
can answer more precisely if I would like to use them as well :).

Cheers,

Adolfo.

I'm cleaning up the code and as you can see, write the documentation
expect something soon!
