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.

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
Cal Poly students use 3D printing to take flight -- and pass their class.
Celebrity engineer Grant Imahara will host a series of “webisodes” that will examine new technology and innovation from an engineer’s point of view.
The UX Italia video contest recognizes Italian machinery, technology, and other experience solutions that have contributed meaningful improvements to people’s lives and production processes. If you submit a three-minute video showcasing how the quality of Italian machinery's User eXperience is essential to your company's success, you just may win a trip to Italy.
