IEEE & NI Webinar, Ulysse Nardin Case Study

 
Newsletter for March 2010

Webinar with the IEEE & NI Mar 25th 2010 (2 PM ET/11 AM PT/ 19:00 GMT)

Register There is an increasing demand for mechatronic systems that require the effective integration of subsystems from different engineering domains (eg mechanisms, electric motors, electric circuits and controllers). Traditionally modeling such systems have been a major challenge but emerging physical modeling tools have greatly simplified this task.

Furthermore, the complexity of these systems requires that a significant amount of up-front testing is performed to ensure the correct behavior of the system before investment in the full prototype is considered. This means that the integration of these systems is typically a process of testing real subcomponents with “virtual” components, running on high-performance real-time simulators so that they behave as if they are installed in the full system. This “Hardware-in-the-Loop” (HIL) testing is rapidly becoming a critical part of the design process for mechatronic systems because it helps to identify design flaws and significantly increases the likelihood of a successful – and lower cost – prototyping stage.

The seminar features experts from two of the leading engineering modeling and real-time simulation tool providers. They will present an overview of modeling and simulation of complex engineering systems using physical modeling techniques derived from symbolic model formulation techniques, and the advantages this brings for implementation in real-time simulation systems for HIL testing.

To illustrate this process, applications will be presented using MapleSim for multi-domain system model development, and deployment to the range of real-time simulation platforms from National Instruments. This will feature the new real-time testing software, NI VeriStand™, a ready-to-use software environment for configuring real-time testing applications, including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test systems.

Ulysse NardinCase Study: Maple is used by Ulysse Nardin to lengthen the running time of new watches

Claude Bourgeois, an engineering consultant and former Centre Suisse d'Electronique et de Microtechnique (CSEM) researcher, used Maple to model and optimize barrel springs made of composite materials compatible with deep etching on silicon. The use of composite materials should double the running time, i.e. the operating time of watches when they are at rest.

Ulysse Nardin, a Swiss watch manufacturer, is a pioneer in the innovative use of new technologies and materials in wristwatches. This company introduced the first silicon-diamond composite barrel spring in a wristwatch and continues to produce sophisticated new watches based on cutting-edge designs. Maple, the symbolic and mathematical calculation software from Maplesoft, is a key tool in the research process at Ulysse Nardin.

Maplesoft In The Press

Here are some highlights of this past month press coverage.

Maplesoft builds on its legendary symbolic math engine to deliver comprehensive engineering simulations.
Desktop Engineering , March. 12, 2010

Extract: “If a lot of your engineering work involves solving sets of equations involving calculus, differential equations, Laplace transforms, Fast Fourier transforms, and the like, you probably use one of the symbolic mathematics engines available on the market. One of the first of these, Maple, came out of the University of Waterloo in Canada. Today, in its 13th major release, Maple remains a standard for working with symbolic, as opposed to numeric, equations.”

Editor's Pick: Maplesoft Extends Connectivity to Tools from National Instruments
Desktop Engineering , Feb. 10, 2010

Extract: “Remember that scene is the movie “Jerry Maguire” when the guy in the elevator tells his girlfriend that she completes him? Today's Pick of the Week will be like that for many of you. Maplesoft's new MapleSim Connector for LabVIEW and NI VeriStand does just that. It completes the loop, hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) that is. In a nutshell, what the MapleSim Connector does for you is make HIL testing and simulation faster and more accessible.”
