Advanced: A Frame's Base Frame and Transform

A base Frame is the most ancestral Frame (itself, its parent, grandparent, great-grandparent, etc, down the family tree) whose angular velocity is identical to this Frame.

That is they belong to the same rigid spatial entity. For example, anatomical frames may be used to identify points of interest (muscle attachments) and joint connections on a body in a convenient way, but their movement is dictated by the body. That body, in this case, would be a base frame for any of the anatomical frames attached to the body including frames subsequently attached to the anatomical frames and so on.

Detailed Description

A Frame is an OpenSim representation of a reference frame.

It consists of a right-handed set of three orthogonal axes and an origin point. Frames are intended to provide convenient reference frames for locating physical structures (such as joints and muscle attachments) as well as provide a convenient basis for performing spatial calculations. For example, if your system involves contact, you might define a Frame that is aligned with the normal direction of a contact surface and whose origin is at the center-of-pressure.

Every Frame is capable of providing its SimTK::Transform (translation of the origin and the orientation of its axes) in the Ground frame as a function of the Model's (SimTK::MultibodySystem's) state.

The Frame class also provides convenience methods for re-expressing vectors from one Frame to another.

As already noted, Frames are useful for locating physical structures such as bodies, their joints, and the locations where constraints can be connected and forces can be applied. It is perhaps less evident that Frames can be extremely useful for relating a multitude of reference frames together to form chains and trees. For example, a Frame to specify muscle attachments (M) and a Frame to specify a joint location (J) could themselves be specified in an anatomical Frame (A) defined by bony landmarks identified by surface markers or tagged on CT or MRI images. The body (B), to which the anatomical frame (A) is attached, can be thought of as a "Base" frame or a root of a tree from which a set of descendant frames arise. In particular, a Base frame and all its descendants have the property that they share the same angular velocity, since they are affixed to the same underlying Frame (in this case a Body).

        M---muscle points
       /
  B---A
       \
        J---joint axes

Therefore, a useful concept is that of a Base frame, and a Frame can always provide a Base frame. If a Frame is not affixed to another frame, its Base frame is itself.

◆ attachGeometry()

void OpenSim::Frame::attachGeometry ( OpenSim::Geometry geom)

Attach Geometry to this Frame and have this Frame take ownership of it by adding it to this Frame's <attached_geometry> property list.

The Geometry is treated as being fixed to this Frame such that the transform used to position the Geometry is that of this Frame.

◆ calcAccelerationInGround()

virtual SimTK::SpatialVec OpenSim::Frame::calcAccelerationInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const
protectedpure virtual

The spatial acceleration {alpha; a} for this Frame in ground.

Implemented in OpenSim::OffsetFrame< PhysicalFrame >.

◆ calcTransformInGround()

virtual SimTK::Transform OpenSim::Frame::calcTransformInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const
protectedpure virtual

Calculate the transform related to this Frame with respect to ground.

This method returns the transform X_GF, converting quantities expressed in this frame, F, to quantities expressed in the ground, G, frame. This is mathematically stated as: vec_G = X_GF*vec_F

Implemented in OpenSim::OffsetFrame< PhysicalFrame >.

◆ calcVelocityInGround()

virtual SimTK::SpatialVec OpenSim::Frame::calcVelocityInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const
protectedpure virtual

The spatial velocity {omega; v} of this Frame in ground.

Implemented in OpenSim::OffsetFrame< PhysicalFrame >.

◆ clone()

Frame* OpenSim::Frame::clone ( ) const
overridepure virtual

Create a new heap-allocated copy of the concrete object to which this Object refers.

It is up to the caller to delete the returned object when no longer needed. Every concrete object deriving from Object implements this pure virtual method automatically, via the declaration macro it invokes (e.g., OpenSim_DECLARE_CONCRETE_OBJECT()). Note that the concrete class overrides modify the return type to be a pointer to the concrete object; that still overrides the base class method because the return type is covariant with (that is, derives from) Object.

Implements OpenSim::ModelComponent.

Implemented in OpenSim::OffsetFrame< PhysicalFrame >, OpenSim::PhysicalFrame, OpenSim::PhysicalOffsetFrame, OpenSim::ExperimentalFrame, OpenSim::Body, and OpenSim::Ground.

◆ expressVectorInAnotherFrame()

SimTK::Vec3 OpenSim::Frame::expressVectorInAnotherFrame ( const SimTK::State &  state,
const SimTK::Vec3 &  vec_F,
const Frame otherFrame 
) const

Take a vector expressed in this frame (F) and re-express the same vector in another frame (A).

This re-expression accounts for the difference in orientation between the frames. This is mathematically stated as: vec_A = R_AF*vec_F which does not translate the vector. This is intended to re-express physical vector quantities such as a frame's angular velocity or an applied force, from one frame to another without changing the physical quantity. If you have a position vector and want to change the point from which the position is measured, you want findStationLocationInAnotherFrame().

Parameters
stateThe state of the model.
vec_FThe vector to be re-expressed.
otherFrameThe frame in which the vector will be re-expressed
Returns
vec_A The expression of the vector in otherFrame.

◆ expressVectorInGround()

SimTK::Vec3 OpenSim::Frame::expressVectorInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state,
const SimTK::Vec3 &  vec_F 
) const

Take a vector in this frame (F) and re-express the same vector in Ground (G).

This method is equivalent to expressVectorInAnotherFrame() where the "other Frame" is always Ground.

Parameters
stateThe state of the model.
vec_FThe vector to be re-expressed.
Returns
vec_G The expression of the vector in Ground.

◆ extendAddToSystem()

void OpenSim::Frame::extendAddToSystem ( SimTK::MultibodySystem &  system) const
overrideprotectedvirtual

Add appropriate Simbody elements (if needed) to the System corresponding to this component and specify needed state resources.

extendAddToSystem() is called when the Simbody System is being created to represent a completed system (model) for computation. That is, connect() will already have been invoked on all components before any addToSystem() call is made. Helper methods for adding modeling options, state variables and their derivatives, discrete variables, and cache entries are available and can be called within extendAddToSystem() only.

Note that this method is const; you may not modify your model component or the containing model during this call. Any modifications you need should instead be performed in finalizeFromProperties() or at the latest connect(), which are non-const. The only exception is that you may need to record access information for resources you create in the system, such as an index number. For most Components, OpenSim base classes either provide convenience methods or handle indices automatically. Otherwise, you must declare indices as mutable data members so that you can set them here.

If you override this method, be sure to invoke the base class method at the beginning, using code like this:

void MyComponent::extendAddToSystem(SimTK::MultibodySystem& system) const {
// Perform any additions to the system required by your Super
// ... your code goes here
}

This method assumes that this Component's addToSystem will be invoked before its subcomponents. If you need your subcomponents to be added to the system, first (e.g. require of a Force to be anchored to a SimTK::MobilizedBody specified by subcomponents) then you must implement: extendAddToSystemAfterSubcomponents(). It is possible to implement both method to add system elements before and then after your subcomponents have added themselves. Caution is required that Simbody elements are not added twice especially when order is unimportant.

Parameters
[in,out]systemThe MultibodySystem being added to.
See also
addModelingOption(), addStateVariable(), addDiscreteVariables(), addCacheVariable()

Reimplemented from OpenSim::Component.

Reimplemented in OpenSim::PhysicalOffsetFrame, and OpenSim::Ground.

◆ extendConnectToModel()

void OpenSim::Frame::extendConnectToModel ( Model model)
overrideprotectedvirtual

Perform any necessary initializations required to connect the component into the Model, and check for error conditions.

extendConnectToModel() is invoked on all components to complete construction of a Model, prior to creating a Simbody System to represent it computationally. It may also be invoked at times just for its error-checking side effects.

If you override this method, be sure to invoke the base class method first, using code like this:

void MyComponent::extendConnectToModel(Model& model) {
Super::extendConnectToModel(model); // invoke parent class method
// ... your code goes here
}

Note that this method is expected to check for modeling errors and should throw an OpenSim::Exception if there is something wrong. For example, if your model component references another object by name, you should verify that it exists in the supplied Model, which is not guaranteed since components may be independently instantiated or constructed from XML files.

Parameters
[in,out]modelThe Model currently being constructed to which this ModelComponent should be connected.

Reimplemented from OpenSim::ModelComponent.

Reimplemented in OpenSim::PhysicalFrame, OpenSim::OffsetFrame< PhysicalFrame >, and OpenSim::Body.

◆ extendRealizeTopology()

void OpenSim::Frame::extendRealizeTopology ( SimTK::State &  state) const
overrideprotectedvirtual

Obtain state resources that are needed unconditionally, and perform computations that depend only on the system topology.

Reimplemented from OpenSim::Component.

◆ extendScale()

void OpenSim::Frame::extendScale ( const SimTK::State &  s,
const ScaleSet scaleSet 
)
overridevirtual

Scales Geometry components that reside in the Frame's attached_geometry list property.

Note that Geometry residing elsewhere (e.g., in the components list property of a Frame or any other Component) will not be scaled. Note also that ContactGeometry derives from ModelComponent so the classes derived from ContactGeometry are responsible for scaling themselves. (However, scale() is not currently implemented on ContactGeometry or classes derived therefrom so they will not scale with the Model.)

Reimplemented from OpenSim::ModelComponent.

Reimplemented in OpenSim::OffsetFrame< PhysicalFrame >, and OpenSim::Body.

◆ findBaseFrame()

const Frame& OpenSim::Frame::findBaseFrame ( ) const

Find this Frame's base Frame.

See the "Advanced" note, above.

Returns
baseFrame The Frame that is the base for this Frame.

◆ findStationAccelerationInGround()

SimTK::Vec3 OpenSim::Frame::findStationAccelerationInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state,
const SimTK::Vec3 &  station_F 
) const

Take a station located and expressed in this frame (F) and determine its acceleration relative to and expressed in Ground (G).

Note that if you have added an OpenSim::Station, you should use the Station's getAccelerationInGround() method instead.

Parameters
stateThe state of the model.
station_FThe position Vec3 from frame F's origin to the station.
Returns
acc_G The acceleration of the station in Ground.

◆ findStationLocationInAnotherFrame()

SimTK::Vec3 OpenSim::Frame::findStationLocationInAnotherFrame ( const SimTK::State &  state,
const SimTK::Vec3 &  station_F,
const Frame otherFrame 
) const

Take a station located and expressed in this frame (F) and determine its location relative to and expressed in another frame (A).

The transform accounts for the difference in orientation and translation between the frames. This is mathematically stated as: loc_A = X_AF*station_F

Parameters
stateThe state of the model.
station_FThe position Vec3 from frame F's origin to the station.
otherFrameThe frame (A) in which the station's location will be relative to and expressed.
Returns
loc_A The location of the station in another frame (A).

◆ findStationLocationInGround()

SimTK::Vec3 OpenSim::Frame::findStationLocationInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state,
const SimTK::Vec3 &  station_F 
) const

Take a station located and expressed in this frame (F) and determine its location relative to and expressed in Ground (G).

This method is equivalent to findStationLocationInAnotherFrame() where the "other Frame" is always Ground.

Note that if you have added an OpenSim::Station, you should use the Station's getLocationInGround() method instead.

Parameters
stateThe state of the model.
station_FThe position Vec3 from frame F's origin to the station.
Returns
loc_G The location of the station in Ground.

◆ findStationVelocityInGround()

SimTK::Vec3 OpenSim::Frame::findStationVelocityInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state,
const SimTK::Vec3 &  station_F 
) const

Take a station located and expressed in this frame (F) and determine its velocity relative to and expressed in Ground (G).

Note that if you have added an OpenSim::Station, you should use the Station's getVelocityInGround() method instead.

Parameters
stateThe state of the model.
station_FThe position Vec3 from frame F's origin to the station.
Returns
vel_G The velocity of the station in Ground.

◆ findTransformBetween()

SimTK::Transform OpenSim::Frame::findTransformBetween ( const SimTK::State &  state,
const Frame otherFrame 
) const

Find the transform that describes this frame (F) relative to another frame (A).

It transforms quantities expressed in F to quantities expressed in A. This is mathematically stated as: vec_A = X_AF*vec_F , where X_AF is the transform returned by this method.

Parameters
stateThe state applied to the model when determining the transform.
otherFramea second frame
Returns
transform The transform between this frame and otherFrame

◆ findTransformInBaseFrame()

SimTK::Transform OpenSim::Frame::findTransformInBaseFrame ( ) const

Get the value of the i-th element of the attached_geometry property.

◆ get_frame_geometry()

const FrameGeometry& OpenSim::Frame::get_frame_geometry ( ) const

const SimTK::SpatialVec& OpenSim::Frame::getAccelerationInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const

The spatial acceleration A_GF {alpha; a} of this Frame, measured with respect to and expressed in the ground frame.

It can also be used to compute the acceleration of any stationary point on F, located at r_F (Vec3), in ground, G, as: a_G = A_GF[1] + SimTK::cross(A_GF[0], r_F) + SimTK::cross(V_GF[0], SimTK::cross(V_GF[0], r_F)); Is only valid at Stage::Acceleration or higher.

◆ getAngularAccelerationInGround()

const SimTK::Vec3& OpenSim::Frame::getAngularAccelerationInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const

The angular acceleration of this Frame, measured with respect to and expressed in the ground frame (i.e., the first half of the SpatialVec returned by getAccelerationInGround()).

◆ getAngularVelocityInGround()

const SimTK::Vec3& OpenSim::Frame::getAngularVelocityInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const

The angular velocity of this Frame, measured with respect to and expressed in the ground frame (i.e., the first half of the SpatialVec returned by getVelocityInGround()).

◆ getClassName()

static const std::string& OpenSim::Frame::getClassName ( )
inlinestatic

This returns "Frame".

See getConcreteClassName() if you want the class name of the underlying concrete object instead.

This is generated by the OpenSim_DECLARE_*_OBJECT macros.

◆ getConcreteClassName()

const std::string& OpenSim::Frame::getConcreteClassName ( ) const
overridepure virtual

Returns the class name of the concrete Object-derived class of the actual object referenced by this Object, as a string.

This is the string that is used as the tag for this concrete object in an XML file. Every concrete class derived from Object automatically overrides this method via the declaration macro it uses. See getClassName() to get the class name of the referencing (possibly abstract) class rather than the concrete object.

◆ getLinearVelocityInGround()

const SimTK::Vec3& OpenSim::Frame::getLinearVelocityInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const

The linear velocity of this Frame, measured with respect to and expressed in the ground frame (i.e., the second half of the SpatialVec returned by getVelocityInGround()).

◆ getPositionInGround()

SimTK::Vec3 OpenSim::Frame::getPositionInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const
inline

Accessor for position of the origin of the Frame in Ground.

SimTK::Rotation OpenSim::Frame::getRotationInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const
inline

Accessor for Rotation matrix of the Frame in Ground.

◆ getTransformInGround()

const SimTK::Transform& OpenSim::Frame::getTransformInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const

Get the transform of this frame (F) relative to the ground frame (G).

It transforms quantities expressed in F into quantities expressed in G. This is mathematically stated as: vec_G = X_GF*vec_F , where X_GF is the transform returned by getTransformInGround.

Parameters
stateThe state applied to the model when determining the transform.
Returns
transform The transform between this frame and the ground frame

◆ getVelocityInGround()

const SimTK::SpatialVec& OpenSim::Frame::getVelocityInGround ( const SimTK::State &  state) const

The spatial velocity V_GF {omega; v} of this Frame, measured with respect to and expressed in the ground frame.

It can be used to compute the velocity of any stationary point on F, located at r_F (Vec3), in ground, G, as: v_G = V_GF[1] + SimTK::cross(V_GF[0], r_F); Is only valid at Stage::Velocity or higher.

◆ safeDownCast()

static Frame* OpenSim::Frame::safeDownCast ( OpenSim::Object obj)
inlinestatic

For use in MATLAB and Python to access the concrete class.

Example: cObj = Frame.safeDownCast(obj). This is equivalent to dynamic_cast<Frame*>(obj) in C++.
