Maple helps Discover Mathematics-based Gömböc Shape
April 14, 2013
Scientific Computing and Instrumentation
“The invention of Gömböc is the culmination of a long process of mathematical research and Maple, the mathematical computation engine from Maplesoft, played an important role in its discovery. The yet-undiscovered shape was known to be a convex mono-monostatic object — a three-dimensional object, which because of its geometry had only one possible way to balance upright. Domokos and Várkonyi identified a two-parameter family of objects, all of which had the desired mono-monostatic property. However, not all of them were convex. Maple was used to identify the convex shapes and thus prove the existence of the shape. The process involved a large amount of complex, precise mathematical computation, and Maple’s symbolic computation power made it possible.”

Once Bak is confident of the custom elements’ performance, he incorporates them into MapleSim models of the actuation system and evaluates the complete crane’s likely performance. “We already built a model of an existing crane and demonstrated that it accurately predicts the real crane’s behavior. The model lets us study the likely impact of design changes to individual components.”
Toyota Uses Maplesoft Symbolic Computation Methods in Control Design
February 28, 2013
Control Design
“Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America is working in combined efforts with mathematical and analytical software provider Maplesoft in a new project with an end goal of shortening Toyota's development time while maintaining product quality. The research-based Symbolic Control project will use Maplesoft's symbolic computation methods in robust control design.”
Maplesoft project for Toyota leverages symbolic computation
February 28, 2013
R&D Magazine
“This project will see the leading car manufacturer use new symbolic computation methods in robust control design, with a strong focus on methods for linear, nonlinear, and parametric systems. Maplesoft technology is rooted in strong symbolic computation techniques, making it an appropriate choice for Toyota.”

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.”

“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

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

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

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.”

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.”
