OptiStruct(reg) 3.1 is a finite element-based optimization tool that uses the science of topology optimization. OptiStruct computes the optimum material topology for a model within a given design space. This technology is applied at the beginning of the design process, when the greatest improvements are possible. Using OptiStruct, users can create new concept designs or improve existing designs.
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.
