Limb Rehabilitation Robot Successfully Tested with Maplesoft Simulation
August 17, 2015
Product Design & Development
To identify how a rehabilitation robot most effectively interacts with the patient, researchers at the University of Waterloo created a musculoskeletal model of the human arm that can replicate the movement of an upper limb rehabilitation robot. They used MapleSim to model an end-effector based planar robot whose movements replicated the kind of movements a human patient would be asked to perform during physiotherapy. The simulated model can adjust itself to replicate either a healthy arm or the variable levels of movement disorders that may affect rehab patients.
MapleSim Used to Speed up Development of High-fidelity Robotic Manipulator Models
July 29, 2015
Virtual-Strategy Magazine
ABB's Robotics business unit has over 250,000 robots installed worldwide. Their previously tedious design process, which included rigorous testing with simulation models, left them searching for a more user-friendly tool. With the goal in mind to create high-fidelity manipulator models that included flexible joints, gears and dynamic friction, engineers found MapleSim was able to reduce the modeling time so much so that multiple models could be created in the time normally required to create just one.
Detect Design Warning Signs Early with Dynamic Modeling
July 16, 2015
Machine Design
In this article, Maplesoft’s Paul Goossens explains why many engineering organizations are turning to system-level modeling tools such as MapleSim to develop virtual prototypes of their systems. With a model of the complete system in one environment, engineers can see how all of the individual subsystems work together, identify weaknesses in the design, and make corrections earlier in the development cycle.
Testing a battery management system
July 16, 2015
CAN Newsletter Online
As the global market continues to shift towards rechargeable batteries, monitoring and controlling larger cell arrays through a battery management system (BMS) helps to minimize charge times and maximize efficiency and battery life. Designing a BMS poses challenges that can be solved using virtual batteries. Maplesoft and ControlWorks Inc. used MapleSim and the MapleSim Battery Library to create a battery model capable of being configured to represent a stack of up to 144 cells that can be connected in any combination of parallel and series networks.
Joint Project by Maplesoft and the University of Waterloo Wins Innovation in Education Award

Maplesoft's Annual Digital Testing and Assessment Summit to Examine Trends in Online Education
June 1, 2015
Digital CAD
Maplesoft's annual international Maple T.A. User Summit is to be held in New York City from June 15 to 17, 2015. The Summit will bring together Maple T.A. users and experts to discuss and deliberate on trends in online STEM education, and technology platforms suitable to move courses, homework and tests online. Attendees will hear from pioneering users in e-learning who have successfully implemented these technologies.
Simulating Clearpath Robots in MapleSim
May 25, 2015
Robotics Tomorrow
A couple challenges with robotics is that robots are expensive and they usually depend on batteries. What if you want to run an experiment with 100 robots, running for 10 hours? To help answer this question, ROS has built in support for robot simulation in the form of Gazebo. While this works quite well, it is currently unable to simulate physical properties like batteries, temperature, surface roughness. If your robotics research depends on accurate models, you may want to consider looking at MapleSim 2015 – a high performance physical modeling and simulation tool developed by Maplesoft.
New Product from Maplesoft Offers Easy Web Deployment of MapleSim Simulations
May 20, 2015
Virtual Strategy Magazine
Maplesoft's release of MapleSim 2015 includes the latest member to the MapleSim family: the MapleSim Server. With the MapleSim Server, engineers can share their applications with other engineers in the organization, even if they do not have MapleSim. MapleSim itself has also been enhanced to include powerful new tools that help engineers manage large models efficiently, and features to allow engineers to search their models.
Renault uses Maple to develop new Motor for full electric vehicle
May 20, 2015
Process and Control Today
In order to successfully enter the growing electric vehicle market, Renault wanted to create a new motor design that would handle driving pleasure and mass production requirements more effectively than existing designs and processes. Using Maple to model wedge deviation under centrifugal and thermal loads, the team optimized a viable set of dimensions for the new shape of a slot wedge, and also decreased the mass of the rotor to increase the overall efficiency of the motor.
