We are looking at performing some work for the Army using this XNA technology. Before we jump in with both feet, we were wondering if someone could answers some questions:

1) Can we perform complex motion such as a person walking

1a) Can it be automated such as bi-ped motion

2) Can math equations be used such as wheel rotation matching the ground distance

2a) Can this be automated

Any other help / links would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

All those things need to be implemented by you. XNA/GSE is basically a graphics API.

So, it is possible, great! Are there any examples out there that I could see

Thanks again!!!!

Of course you can, and XNA is more thant a graphics API.

It includes lots of Maths helper functions for matrix operations as you mentioned.

It also supports bone operations for meshes, so you definetly can do complex motion as character animation, bipeds, and so.

(moving to XNA forum)

Check out the FAQ in the XNA forum there are planty of websites with tutorials. Right now there are very few animated mesh samples - mainly becuase we are all waiting for the official ones from Microsoft.
