Model-based simulation
Beth Stackpole   6/27/2011 10:30:54 PM
NO RATINGS
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
Charles Murray   6/27/2011 7:10:30 PM
NO RATINGS
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.
