Video interview: Maplesoft enables simulations on real-time platforms

  • 18-Apr-2013 11:31 EDT

Maplesoft on April 17 announced a new release of MapleSim, the advanced system-level modeling and simulation platform for engineers in automotive and other industries. MapleSim 6.1 features improvements to the simulation engine, enabling simulations to be produced faster, according to the SAE 2013 World Congress participant.

In addition, the MapleSim Application Programming Interface—a collection of procedures for manipulating, simulating, and analyzing a MapleSim model in the Maple document environment—has been expanded to provide more flexibility for model creation and analysis. For instance, new API commands make it easier to analyze the parameters in a model programmatically. These commands can take advantage of the full processing power of the computer, automatically detecting and using all available processor cores to perform computations in parallel whenever possible. As a result, engineers can perform large numbers of computations rapidly and get results faster.

Other improvements include expanded connectivity options with the new MapleSim Connector for JMAG-RT, enhanced support for Modelica, and a new transparency option for the visualization of multibody objects that allows engineers to add additional visual context to their models.

Paul Goossens, Maplesoft Vice President, Engineering Solutions, spoke with AEI outside its SAE Congress suite in Detroit's Cobo Center on the date of MapleSim 6.1's release. In this video, he offers a larger view of Maplesoft's capabilities.
