Modeling and Simulation Techniques for Unmanned Vehicle Systems
February 28, 2013
Defense Tech Briefs
“The overarching key to effective MBD is that complex products, like UAVs, need to be considered as whole systems in order to understand how the multitude of subsystems interact with each other over the entire range of duties. This needs to be done very early in the design stage so that as the design evolves, the functional behavior can be validated throughout the process, thus ensuring it continues to fulfill the design goals of the product.”
Modeling the System
January 24, 2013
Desktop Engineering
“Soaring product complexities across many industries, including automotive (electric and hybrid vehicles), aerospace (unmanned aerial vehicles), and energy (smart grids, green power), are putting a tremendous strain on the engineering toolchain. As a result, system-level modeling stands out as an increasingly important approach to engineering design…Modelica seems to be emerging as the standard for describing system-level models.”
Battery design innovation: it's all about mathematics
December 28, 2012
Electronic Product News
“The industry is turning increasingly to math-based modeling techniques which allow engineers to accurately describe the behaviour of the system, and the constraints on the system, in physical terms. These model equations are then used to develop, test, and refine designs very quickly, and without the expense and time required to build physical prototypes.”
Rapid Development of High-fidelty, High-Efficiency Models of Electronic Products
November 30, 2012
Canadian Electronics
“As various engineering domains merge in a single product design, the gaps between tools dedicated to individual engineering domains are most keenly felt. This lack has fostered a new approach to product design, and new tools to support it. In particular, a new multidomain approach has been evolving in Europe, and is starting to gain acceptance in the U.S. and elsewhere. The approach is based on an object-oriented language called Modelica.”
Multiple controllers add to the complexity of electric vehicle design

Vehicle Electrification
“There is more to this than simply saving time and money: by developing sufficiently high-fidelity models of their systems, the question is evolving from “Will it work?” to “How can we make it work better?” By applying rigorous analysis and optimization techniques, engineers can determine design parameters that will improve the system’s performance and efficiency before the first prototype is built… It is only at this system level that the engineer gains true insight into how all the subsystems and components interact, and what effects a design change in one subsystem can have on another.”

Transmission modeling and simulation: key to reducing power loss
July 18, 2012
Automotive Engineering Online
“Over the last decade there has been a remarkable push toward acausal modeling environments, such as MapleSim from Maplesoft, which takes a different approach to modeling. Rather than representing mathematics directly, models use components that contain governing equations, and it is incumbent on the solver to perform the mathematical manipulation.”
Battery Design is Charging Ahead
July 2, 2012
Desktop Engineering
“...the industry is turning increasingly to math-based modeling techniques that allow engineers to accurately describe the behavior of the system--and the constraints on the system--in physical terms. These model equations are then used to develop, test and refine designs quickly, without building physical prototypes. Hence, having a good virtual model of the battery is essential so that both battery behavior and the physical interaction of the battery with all the other components are properly reflected in the model.”
The Mathematics of Battery Efficiency

Energy Efficient and Technology
“One constant of battery research is the need to consider fundamental physical concepts when designing new batteries. To facilitate this, the industry increasingly uses math-based modeling techniques that let engineers accurately describe the behavior and the constraints on a system, in physical terms. The model equations then help in developing, testing, and refining designs quickly and without building physical prototypes.”
The Engine Revolution

Scientific Computing World
Considering the average car of today as a whole, as a machine, one can estimate its overall energy conversion efficiency to be as low as 10 per cent, so there is huge scope for improvement… our tools have strengths in the mechanical and electrical markets.
Efficient development through physical modeling

Control Engineering
Tom Lee writes in an article that mechatronics and symbolic model formulation techniques are driving innovation in the robotics field, from humanoid robots to autonomous cars, and beyond. MapleSim is, clearly, a critical player in this field.
MapleSim Helps Take the Pain Out of Math
May 10, 2009
Desktop Engineering
Laurent Bernardin, Maplesoft's Chief Scientist writes that by automating the detailed mathematics, symbolics-based modeling tools can help break the ice in complex physical modeling for virtual simulation. Through the example of an Ice Tank Carriage, he demonstrates the power of MapleSim.
 
Beyond signal-flow based simulation

Design Products and Applications
In an article on engineering software, Laurent writes that fierce competition in the industry is putting enormous pressure on engineers to produce new designs that will appeal to today’s customers. His solution: Physical modeling and simulation tools such as MapleSim to reduce time-to-market.
Speeding Up the Wheels of Change

Scientific Computing and Instrumentation

An article by Maplesoft's Chief Scientist Laurent Bernardin on the advantages of symbolic-based modeling, has become the cover story of the latest edition of Scientific Computing and Instrumentation. Writes Laurent: Those who are taking advantage of the new symbolic-based modeling technologies are already realizing how much more efficient their work can become, with improvements in cycle times, cost optimization, and smoother implementation of extremely complex systems.”
