Forklift using Hydraulic Cylinder

This model uses the Modelon Hydraulics within MapleSim as an example of a lift control system that is connected with the motion of a mobile forklift system. The forklift can be observed moving forward and backward with the forks being lifted and lowered similar to the desired motion of offloading or loading a pallet. A PI controller is used to control the hydraulic cylinder that is connected within the Multibody domain components. The Multibody, Tire model, and Modelon Hydraulics library are combined in this mobile MapleSim model.
