Al, the continuing enroachment of digital devices has been moving apace.  In the SoC world the software team is now larger than the hardware team.  Tools that allow software design to start at the begining of a project have a major effect.  From your article, this seems to becoming the rule in the mechatronic domain as well.  These models can be complex and the control functions that can be handled in a microcontroller will often are extensive.  This should help shorten time to market in a critical automation area.

Yes, I've been hearing about these simulation techniques. Apparently it's less expensive to simulate and prove the plant before putting the actual pieces together. And apparently it's faster. Plus, a highly optimized and efficient plant configuration can be captured in software and taken to the next plant. It becomes best practices captured in software.

Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
