There’s yet another chapter in the partnership story between Dassault Systèmes and aerospace giant EADS. The two, which have been collaborating around PLM for years, are extending their alliance to include many of the Dassault Systèmes’ simulation software offerings as part of EADS vision for PLM 2.0.
The EADS Phenix PLM Harmonization Center (PHC), a global PLM standardization effort to foster innovation and promote reuse between EADS divisions, will now include Dassault Systèmes’s Isight Fiper and Abaqus applications as part of the V6 open collaborative PLM platform. These tools will serve as the simulation engine in key programs within EADS divisions, such as Airbus and Astrium, in order to accelerate complex architecture development and new concept validation.
“It is our decision to continue to improve the cooperation with Dassault Systèmes in order to increase our PLM capabilities,” said Jean-Yves Mondon, head of PHENIX and PHC at EADS, in a prepared statement. “We believe that our related strategy, leveraging those new potentialities, will provide EADS with a real competitive advantage.”
Unlike industrial robots, which suffered a slight overall slump in 2012, service robots continue to be increasingly in demand. The majority are used for defense, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); and agriculture, such as milking robots.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
Design News and Digi-Key presents: Creating & Testing Your First RTOS Application Using MQX, a crash course that will look at defining a project, selecting a target processor, blocking code, defining tasks, completing code, and debugging.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
