Hi everyone,

I am trying to model dynamics of an 8-legged 6 degrees-of-freedom robotic
lobster using a mathematica based package. The model should also be able
to incorporate foot-ground interaction during locomotion.

There are some packages available for these kinds of modeling tasks (such
as the Dynamics Workbench, Robotica, and Mechanical Systems Package). Can
anyone help me choosing the best alternative (or suggest another one,
if available) for my modeling purposes.

Thank you,
