Not at all, Beth. While in any one of these announcements the advantages are a bit overplayed, I was trying to point out that there are certain advantage to this in that it combines the modeling and coding, eliminating some troubleshooting issues.
Yes, to a certain extent it's a bit of marketing hype. However, if your doing a complex model in Simulink and want to put it into your PAC when done, it does tend to be a good feature that you don't have to convert it. You can simply create a block. Additionally, when changes aer required, they can easily be implemented in modeling environment and taken directly to production.
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.
