Kinematics of SCARA Robot in 2D

The SCARA robot (Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm) has four degrees of freedom: three rotations and one translation.
This Demonstration shows the inverse-kinematic simulation of a SCARA robot in 2D. The forward equation of the SCARA robot comes from the D-H coordinate method, based on the matrix
.
The inverse equation of the SCARA robot uses the inverse transform method.
.
To simulate the inverse kinematics of the SCARA robot, the endpoint of the robot traces a straight line from to in five minutes with the velocity shown in the Demonstration.
