Clearpath Robotics Design Technologies And Software
May 30, 2012
Control Engineering
“Software modeling is important for robotics. Clearpath Robotics uses Maplesoft’s MapleSim, an intuitive multidomain modeling and simulation environment including mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, thermal, and signal-flow systems... MapleSim helps overcome these challenges because of its exceptional 3-D multibody dynamics and multidomain modeling capabilities.”
Multi-Domain Modeling Aids in the Movement of Automated Guide Vehicles

Control Engineering
“ Clearpath frequently needs to design robots based on a new set of requirements, different surface conditions, robot size and shape, or performance criteria. The software models can be highly parameterized, so they provide an ideal rapid prototyping environment for creating new designs. They build base models in which many elements that would be traditionally assigned a fixed value are actually implemented as symbolic parameters, so that they can easily explore the effects of changing these design elements without the need to create a new model.”
MapleSim Breaks New Ground in Hardware-in-the-Loop Real-Time Simulation for Planetary Rovers
May 22, 2012
Product Design and Development
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. The goal is to progressively add hardware components to the simulation loop as they become available. In this way, system testing takes place even without all the hardware components, bridging the gap between the design and testing phases.

“The main advantage of this approach is that it significantly reduces the overall development time in the project. In addition, this allows for component testing under dangerous scenarios without the risk of damaging a full rover prototype.”
Simulation Speeds Quadricopter Designs

Design Product News
Typically, design engineers resort to making various model simplifications or compromises for the model; ultimately, this reduces the accuracy and effectiveness of the simulation process. Since MapleSim automatically derives the system equations directly from the model diagram, the Quanser engineers developed a very high fidelity model with gyroscopic effects in very little time and with little effort.

Automotive Engineering International (SAE)
They (researchers) have found the symbolic approach in MapleSim to be an effective way to develop simulation models that have fast real-time speeds for hardware-in-the-loop testing and very high fidelity compared to models created in conventional modeling tools. The system equations for the multidomain model of a hybrid-electric vehicle are generated automatically by MapleSim.
Slapshot robot aims to create game-changing hockey sticks

MapleSim played a critical role in the design and development of the SlapShot XT. MapleSim allowed Hockey Robotics to efficiently and accurately simulate the coupled dynamic electrical and mechanical behavior of the equipment. MapleSim enabled the concurrent study of the flexible body deformation and rigid body motion of the machines, which is a very difficult, time-consuming, and error-prone task when done by hand. It also allowed company engineers to quickly prototype the designs and investigate the coupled motion of the mechanisms easily.

Design Engineering
In engineering research, detail is vital. Researchers must not only develop models quickly, but they also require in-depth analytical tools to help them understand on a fundamental level the intricacies of their models. Researchers at many academic institutions have adopted MapleSim, advanced physical modeling software from Maplesoft, as a key tool in their engineering research activities (see page 24 using link below).

Design News
MapleSim let Hockey Robotics efficiently simulate the coupled dynamic electrical and mechanical behavior of the equipment, while also letting the team quickly prototype the designs and investigate the motion of the mechanisms. With MapleSim, the team was also able to concurrently study the flexible body deformation and rigid body motion of the robot -- a task, McPhee said, that would have been extremely time-consuming and error-prone if done by hand.
