I have been working with Grasshopper quite some time however that was purely geometrical and static. I want to dive deeper in the simulation with Grasshopper and to do that I wanted to simulate the behavior of a Grassmowing robot in a garden.
So to simplify I want a rectangle (=robot) to move within a closed curve. When the rectangle collides with the outside curve it should change direction. If I could keep track of the total track of the robot with a polyline I could analyse that to see which parameters are the best.
I’ve seen Kangaroo used to simulate stuff but as far as I can tell that searches for a “final” solution based on the constraints. Does anyone have some advice on how to get started or can someone point me in the right direction to start my adventure?
