What's the conditional contact element in the AnyBody system?

Hi, I found a paper. Cho, Kilhyun, et al. "Analysis and evaluation of a combined human-exoskeleton model under two different constraints condition." Proceedings of the International Summit on Human Simulation 23 (2012): 25.

In the paper, it is said the conditional contact element in the AnyBody system was used to generate the contact force that was exerted between the human body and the exoskeleton robot in accordance with the dynamic constraints.

Is there any tutorial about the conditional contact element? Or could you please share some material about this element?

Thank you!



Hi TJ,

You can read more about the conditional contact element on our wiki page over here. You can also see an example model using these conditional contact elements in the AMMR over here.

I hope this helps.

Best regards
