MapleSim speeds development of high-fidelity robotic manipulator models
September 15, 2015
Working with a research team from Linkoping University in Sweden, via the industry excellence center LINK-SIC, engineers at ABB's Robotics business unit in Vasteras, Sweden, set out to evaluate the use of MapleSim, the high-performance modeling and simulation platform from Maplesoft. Their goal was to develop high-fidelity manipulator models that included flexible joints, gears, and dynamic friction, and to determine the ease with which the models can be exported and integrated with other software tools for simulation or controller development.

SAE Competitions Improve Employability of Budding CAE Engineers
September 1, 2015
A profile of the tools that are offered by Maplesoft to participants of the Formula SAE and SAE Aero Design competitions. These competitions consist of university students building working models of vehicles or airplanes to test and race.
SAE Collegiate Design Competitors Use Industry Tools from Maplesoft
August 28, 2015
Virtual-Strategy Magazine
Teams who recently participated in the Formula SAE and SAE Aero Design 2015 competitions were given the opportunity to receive free tools from Maplesoft to apply to their designs. The sponsorship equips students with industry tools that they can immediately use on their team's design, thus adding to the value of their overall experience in the competition.
Simulating one step at a time

Scientific Computing World
This featured article in Scientific Computing World outlines how Maplesoft has had continued success in the mathematical software market over the last 25 years. Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President of Research and Development, discusses how the software has adapted to its users' needs, including optimizing the user interfaces, all the while maintaining the tool's integrity.
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

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.
