SCONE Concepts

In SCONE, everything needed to perform a predictive simulation is bundled in what is called a scenario. Each SCONE scenario consists of the following components:

  • A musculoskeletal Model of the human or animal you wish to simulate.
  • A Controller that generates input for the model actuators.
  • An Objective that describes the goal task for which you wish to optimize, through a weighted combination of Measures.
  • An Optimizer that tries to find the parameters that optimally perform a specific objective.
