New Maplesoft project for Toyota leverages symbolic computation in control systems engineering
February 28, 2013
Design Product News
“Using the results of the Model Simplification project as a foundation, the Symbolic Control project will involve research on analyzing, designing, and simplifying controller models in isolation, as well as in system models. This work will support the control design process by speeding up test and simulation times in the lab environment and ensuring optimal behavior in the final product.”
Symbolic design and analysis
February 28, 2013
Automotive Engineering International
“Maplesoft expands its partnership with Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America to include the Symbolic Control project. The project’s goal is research leading to the implementation of symbolic design and analysis methods for linear, nonlinear, and parametric robust control. This research will allow developers to consider system nonlinearities, modeling inaccuracies, and parametric uncertainties in the design process.”
New Maplesoft project for Toyota leverages symbolic computation in control systems engineering

“This new project follows the completion of another successful Maplesoft project for Toyota, which saw high-end research and implementation of new methods for model simplification and preprocessing of high-level acausal dynamical models.”
Simulation software builds rugged offshore machines
January 30, 2013
Machine Design
“Researchers hope to simplify designs by giving engineers a way to build and run detailed simulations of equipment before they assemble a single part. Here is where system-level modelling software MapleSim lends a hand. ‘’The model-based-design approach lets users model the entire structure and control system in sufficient detail to get a realistic idea of a drilling rig’s performance,’ says project head Morten Kollerup Bak. ‘MapleSim can divide the whole system into mechanical, hydraulic actuation, and electrical-control models.’ “
Simulation lifts design exercise to a higher level
January 24, 2013
Design Products and Applications
“A Norwegian university research project is using computer models to predict the performance of complex offshore materials handling equipment. In the short term, the work is helping designers pick the best components for the job; ultimately, the aim is to automate more of the design process. For this work, it is using the MapleSim simulation application from Maplesoft.”
MapleSim helps with walking, talking robot
December 28, 2012
Scientific Computing World
“A walking robot will not only take RoboThespian’s performance as an entertainer and educator to the next level, but the robot prototype will also be used as an advanced research platform that explores verbal and non-verbal communication, human-robot social interaction, object tracking and recognition, and many other areas.”
Powering the future
December 28, 2012
Scientific Computing World
“Each group within the design process has their own special tools, but very few of these tools have the ability to incorporate various domains and get a true handle on what the overall behavior of the system will be. The software solutions available from Maplesoft bring together all of these various domains to enable users to get a broad-system level view, facilitation the optimization process.”
VI-grade Leverages MapleSim for Vehicle Driving Simulator
October 17, 2012
Desktop Engineering
“VI-DriveSim Dynamic enables the implementation of a new validation stage in the design cycle by letting real drivers drive the virtual car, the company says. Driver feedback can then be taken into account and improvements made before any physical prototypes are built.”
New Methods for Modeling Physical Systems
October 17, 2012
R&D Magazine
“The main goal was to develop the theory and computer algorithms necessary to automatically create engineering models in a mathematical form, which in return would speed up the system-level modeling approach for new products. Using MapleSim, a number of multidomain system models comprising mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, and other components have now been successfully created by the research team for hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) architecture design.”
Symbolic Computing for Design Engineering
October 12, 2012
Desktop Engineering
“The article showcases, based on examples, that there are a good many situations during an engineer’s workday in which using symbolic computations is the smarter choice.”
The Power Behind Battery Design
September 20, 2012
Design Solutions
“Simulation results showed that the model is viable and, as a result of MapleSim’s lossless symbolic techniques for automatically producing an optimal set of equations, the number of governing equations was significantly reduced, resulting in a computationally efficient system. This HEV model can be used for design, control, and prediction of vehicle handling performance under different driving scenarios.”
How to Engineer a Planetary Rover
August 22, 2012
Automotive Design and Production
“Listen to Dr. Amir Khajepour, Canada Research Chair in Mechatronic Vehicle Systems and professor of Engineering at the University of Waterloo: “MapleSim was found to be the ideal environment for this application due to its multidomain abilities, use of symbolic simplification for higher computational efficiency and ease of connectivity to LabVIEW.”
Space Equipment Gets in the Loop - MapleSim breaks new ground in HIL real-time simulation for planetary rovers
August 7, 2012
Desktop Engineering
“In the space industry, the design, building and testing of rover prototypes is extremely expensive. System testing typically does not occur until late in the design/testing process, leading to a long development period. In response to this, Dr. Amir Khajepour, Canada Research Chair in Mechatronic Vehicle Systems and a professor of engineering in the Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering department at the University of Waterloo (UW), and his team worked with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and Maplesoft, to develop a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test platform for solar-powered planetary rovers... the main advantage of their approach is that it significantly reduces the overall development time in the project. In addition, it allows for component testing under dangerous scenarios without the risk of damaging a full rover prototype.”
Software extends hardware-in-the-loop real-time simulation
June 25, 2012
EE Times
“The team's approach allows component testing within a simulation loop before a full rover prototype is available, essentially creating a virtual testing environment for the component under test by “tricking” it into thinking it is operating within a full prototype. Using the MapleSim modeling and simulation tool, high fidelity and computationally efficient models were created for this real-time application.”

“Using MapleSim, the modeling and simulation tool from Maplesoft, high-fidelity and computationally efficient models were created for this real-time application...Using this test platform, scenarios that are hard to replicate in a lab setup, such as the Martian environment, or components that are not yet available, can be modeled while hardware components that are available can communicate with these software models for real-time simulations.”
