Graduate students at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies are getting hands-on experience developing high-performance attitude control systems using model-based design tools from The MathWorks. Using a combination of MathWorks’ MATLAB and Simulink, the students are working side-by-side with engineers at the university’s Space Flight Laboratory to gain practical experience building a system that will actually fly in space, noted Dr. Robert Zee, the director of the lab. The students developed a preliminary design of the satellite system, which was then modeled and tested with the MathWorks tools. MATLAB and Simulink also provided a common language for more seamless collaboration with professors and experts at other universities throughout Canada. The lab collaborates with business, government and academic institutions on spacecraft projects and the development of new space technologies with the aim of promoting the use of new technologies in space. The partnership with MathWorks is intended to help universities and programs like SFL to turn out students who are prepared to tackle real-world engineering and design challenges, officials said.
Transfers the control of a large number of motion axes from one numerical control kernel to another within a CNC system, using multiple NCKs, and enables implement control schemes for virtually any type of machine tool.
Industrial trade shows, like Design News' upcoming Pacific Design & Manufacturing, deserve proper planning in order to truly get the most out of them as marketing tools. Here's how to plan effectively.
