SCONE Objectives and Measures

The goal of a predictive simulation is to find the motion pattern for which a specific task is performed optimally. Such a task is represented by an objective function, which returns a number that indicates how well a task is performed.

In SCONE, objective functions are defined as a weighted combination of so-called Measures; examples of which are walking speed, energy expenditure, center-of-mass position, etc.
