Maple Helps Research Next-generation Seat Belt Restraints Aimed at Reducing Passenger Injury in Automotive Collisions

Pre-crash shoulder belt tensioning is a new technology designed to reduce automotive crash injuries. Pre-crash tensioning technology increases the opportunity to secure a passenger safely before a crash. Sensors and logic, designed to anticipate a crash, activate a motorized seat belt retractor that secures a shoulder belt around an occupant before the crash. Craig Good, a partner at Collision Analysis (Calgary) Ltd. and Ph.D. graduate at the University of Calgary used Maplesoft products to create a 2-D occupant model, using experimentally measured data. Once the model was created, it gave Good the flexibility to evaluate different scenarios to optimize the system.

Maplesoft Webinar Series

Introduction to Maple 12 for Professionals
August 7, 2008 2:00 pm EDT.
register here

Maple 12 is the essential technical computing software for today’s engineers and scientists. Whether you need to do quick calculations, develop design sheets, or produce sophisticated high-fidelity simulation models, Maple 12 provides the necessary technology to reduce errors and dramatically increase your analytical productivity.

In this one-hour demonstration and Q&A forum, you will learn how Maple 12 combines the world’s most powerful mathematical computation engine with an intuitive user interface, a smart document environment that automatically captures all of your technical knowledge in an electronic form, and the ability to integrate with the rest of your toolchain.

Introduction to MapleSim: The Next Generation in Engineering Modeling and Simulation
August 13, 2008 2:00 pm EDT.
register here

MapleSim builds on Maple’s extensive numeric and symbolic computational abilities to perform high speed simulations of very complex models. MapleSim offers a number of advantages over traditional systems: it has the ability to mix physical components and traditional blocks; model diagrams map directly to the physical system; it offers natural multi-domain modeling; advanced units management; live design documentation; automatic generation of system equations; and model simplification using symbolic techniques. Be among the first to learn about MapleSim!
