Model-based simulation

While Maplesoft is certainly taking its cues from the automotive industry with this latest version of MapleSim, automotive is far from the only industry sector that stands to benefit from use of a physical modeling tool. As products from cars to nuclear reactors to standard household appliances offer feature sets that transcend the different engineering disciplines, having the capability to model system behaviors is all the more critical to separating the product design that works from the one that elicits customer complaints and gets written up as the latest example in Made by Monkeys!

Simulating hybrids

Simulating the action of a hybrid has got to be roughly as complex as simulating the performance of a nuclear power plant. Design engineers have to blend the power from a traction motor, IC engine, generator and planetary gear set, and then determine what's best in terms of torque and fuel efficiency. If this software can do that, then it should make automotive engineering teams very, very happy.

Automotive driving innovation

It's quite refreshing to see the automotive industry driving innovation -- or at least adopting the innovations of others. Move over high tech, medical and aerospace, the automotive industry is shaking its image as the purveyor of old-industry technology as it moves to the bleeding edge.

We take a look at 2015's top engineering schools by salary potential for undergraduate students.
If we are going to be creating a network that serves us, one of its most critical nodes will need to be ourselves. This is where wearable technology comes into play.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
