A central goal of the new public transportation system redesign was to harmonize human activity and nature in the French city of Grenoble.

The result is an innovative system of pods, transporting passengers and freight, which seamlessly connect, scale up and down according to volume patterns, and integrate with ground transportation modes.

The resulting passenger experience is extraordinarily painless and transparent—an obvious solution in hindsight. By design, Modul'Air lowers the barriers to utilizing public transportation and frees up ground space for a healthier environment and higher quality of life.

Get More Screen Real Estate in AutoCAD (Move that Command Line!)

Posted: 21 Oct 2014 03:42 PM PDT

If you're an AutoCAD veteran - then you probably believe that the Command Line belongs in the lower left hand corner of the drawing editor.(where the AutoCAD Gods intended it to be!). 

But if you're greedy with your screen real estate - then you most certainly wish you could take those two or three lines devoured by the Command Line and free them up for your beloved AutoCAD drawing.  Am I right?

Problem solved - now you can have the best of both worlds!  Watch my Cadalyst Tip and see how you can float the command line, and make it nearly transparent when not in use - clear as a bell when you do want to use it!

Three Common Myths of Multi-CAD Data Management

Three Common Myths of Multi-CAD Data Management


Three Common Myths of Multi-CAD Data Management

Posted: 21 Oct 2014 06:29 AM PDT

ENOVIA

Many companies leverage multiple CAD tools (please see my previous blog post "Stop Using Digital Duct Tape for Multi-CAD Solutions" to better understand how companies end up in these environments).  Regardless of how or why these decisions were made, there is a clear opportunity to improve the value of your intellectual assets.

Why do companies pause to take action when the value is so clear?  More often than not inaction comes from the fear of the unknown.   While it does take planning and capable technology to reap the benefits of Multi-CAD data management, it helps to first understand the truth behind these three common myths:

Myth #1: Deploying a system to manage my Multi-CAD data will slow my designers down

The ENOVIA Multi-CAD User Experience is created with speed in mind.  Designers can work from their native CAD environment and access the ENOVIA functions in a seamless manner.   Only the functions specific to their role are made available and embedded directly in their CAD authoring environments.

Myth #2: Bills of Material (BOM) must be manually updated each time there is a change to the design

Product Engineers can step into the product development earlier with the BOM synchronization tools provided by ENOVIA.  Design compatibility with existing manufacturing processes can subsequently be reviewed earlier as well allowing production issues to be caught earlier in the design process.

Myth #3: I cannot include ECAD in my Multi-CAD environment

Electronics designers can leverage the platform's support of mechatronics which allows for a consistent, systems-based, multi-disciplinary development process for discretely manufactured products consisting of mechanical, electronics, and software content.  The ENOVIA Multi-CAD Experience includes management of the leading ECAD solutions.  For details of which software packages are available, contact an ENOVIA solutions expert at enovia.ux.ww@3ds.com.

Transforming a multi-CAD challenge to a multi-CAD opportunity is the business of Dassault Systèmes ENOVIA®.  Companies such as Eaton, 3M and Toshiba use the ENOVIA Multi-CAD solution to increase productivity and gain PLM benefits.

Designing for the Medical Device Industry: The Future – Connected Health

Posted: 20 Oct 2014 08:24 AM PDT

Initially posted by CORE77

With the explosion of wearable technology and legislation like the Affordable Care Act, the medical product industry is rapidly evolving. Healthcare is seeing unprecedented changes, creating new opportunities for devices that connect consumers and doctors to information faster, easier, and more efficiently.

“It’s coming to a point where there are just amazing breakthroughs every day,” says Tor Alden, Principal and CEO at HS Design (HSD), where he has been directly involved in medical design for over 14 years. “[Technologists] are innovating and changing the landscape of how healthcare is going to be done to the point where we’re not going to recognize it in the next three or four years from where it is now.” It’s a changing landscape that has caught the eye of many innovative startups, who now make up half of HSD’s client list.

These new products have amazing technology, but it needs to be humanized and centered on user needs to be successful.”

HSD is positioning itself to be a bridge connecting the medical and healthcare startups with the investment banker communities. Alden predicts that if the growth continues at this rate, that number could be closer to 80% in the next few years.

One of the factors opening the door for innovation in the medical device industry is the Affordable Care Act. As requirements roll out for health care providers, there is an increasing need for new tools and products that ensure patient compliance. Take a typical hip replacement, for example: Under the Affordable Care Act, if a doctor or hospital is not tracking the compliance and rehabilitation of that patient and they return within a year with no improvement, the hospital owes money to the government. There’s a financial incentive to make sure patients get better and, therefore, to track and evaluate their progress. This could spur invention around hip replacements—possibly leading to one with a chip (i.e., embedded UDI) to track rehabilitation or remind patients to get complete their physical therapy exercises.

“The Affordable Care Act is a great opportunity for the design community right now. Everybody is trying to figure out how to innovate increase patient compliance and allow caregivers tools to manage the healthcare services,” says Alden. “Between that and the iHealth generation of iPhones, smartphones, iPads, and everybody wanting to have more control over their healthcare knowledge, there’s a huge opportunity for new products.”

In the century of the wearable device, nearly everyone has some type of personal fitness tracker. For the medical device industry, this means a rise in connected health as consumers clamor to track everything from their steps to calories to sleep cycles. With that surge in technology comes an accelerated need for the design and development of interfaces between the technology and the consumer. “This is the most interesting space that a designer could work today. It’s fascinating,” shares Aidan Petrie, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Ximedica, a medical product development company headquartered in Rhode Island. “We work between humans and the products they use and make sure that they are more usable, satisfactory and safer.”

Ideation & Concept Design

Despite the incentive for new and better products, the medical device industry remains a difficult niche to break into, due to FDA regulations, enormous amounts of capital required, the need for a high level of specialization, and timelines that span 2–6 years. All these factors contribute to a high failure rate, causing many of these projects to be cancelled before they even reach the prototype stage.

Dassault Systèmes is trying to lower that rate of failure by creating software applications that help these companies better understand and anticipate these challenges from the beginning of a project. The software company released an all-in-one program called Ideation & Concept Design for Medical Device industry solution experience, a cloud-based platform designed specifically to take a team through the entire product development process. From initial ideation and market research to verification and validation, the system tracks deliverables and traceable requirements demanded of the strict FDA and other regulations around this sector. With Ideation & Concept Design for Medical Device, Dassault Systèmes shortens the amount of time it takes to bring a product to market, which is critical in a quickly expanding market where there is no time to waste.

The medical device industry will explode for the next twenty years. It will be the place to be focused as a designer,” says Petrie. “It’s great doing things that change people’s lives, and a product can still look beautiful at the same time.”

Drones for daily life are on the horizon

Posted: 20 Oct 2014 07:38 AM PDT

Written by Catherine Bolgar*

Drone

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), or drones, are used to hunt for oil, to monitor hurricanes, to film movies and for search and rescue operations. As regulations become clearer on how and where UAVs can be used, and as technology continues to develop, we'll see even more applications for UAVs in the future.

When UAVs were strictly for military use, the electronics onboard were big and clunky," says Michael W. Heiges, principal research engineer at the Georgia Tech Research Institute in Atlanta. "The computers didn't have a lot of capacity."

Big UAVs have to be controlled by a team of people and can cost over $1 million. However, technological advances in consumer electronics have driven down costs and improved sensors that could also be used on UAVs, making them smaller, cheaper and more nimble. Micro UAVs have wingspans as small as one centimeter, though such tiny drones can fly only a short time and can use only limited sensors. In between lie a range of UAVs that can cost $500 to $2,000.

Now you can maneuver them around very easily, like a hockey puck on ice," Dr. Heiges says. "It took away a lot of the skill involved to operate."

Amazon.com Inc., the online retailer based in Seattle, said last December it was developing drones for package delivery. The company's goal is for packages to arrive within 30 minutes of an order being placed online. However, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said such a use of UAVs wouldn't be allowed, at least for now.

Delivery drone

Dr. Heiges and Georgia Tech are working with cable news channel CNN to study how to safely use UAVs for newsgathering.

In the U.S. and some other countries, small UAVs are governed by the same rules as remote-controlled model airplanes, which must fly no more than 400 feet (120 meters) above the ground. They also must be kept away from populated areas and full-size aircraft. There's also a distinction between hobby use and commercial use. All business use of UAVs is under FAA regulation, and requires a certified aircraft and certified pilot.

Here lies the rub: For now, in the U.S., small UAVs need to stay within sight of their operator on the ground, and bigger UAVs need to be monitored by a chase plane. That limits the ability to send in UAVs where it's too dangerous or difficult for people to go—for example, near a railroad derailment with a toxic spill or to fly over a damaged nuclear plant to track radiation leaks. In Europe, UAVs are being used for safety inspections of infrastructure, such as rail tracks, dams, dykes and power grids, according to a communication from the European Commission in April. National authorities in Europe also are using them for disaster relief, such as flying over flooded areas or supporting fire fighters.

Larger UAVs are being flown remotely—though over unpopulated areas—for example, in search and rescue operations in national parks, or behind the lines of wildfires, Dr. Heiges says.

Technology could address this challenge soon. "The main thing people would like to see is sense and avoid capability, either radar or video or some combination of the two," he says. "That capability is needed to avoid other aircraft and for being able to understand how far away other aircraft are. Until we do that, UAVs have to remain in sight of an observer on the ground."

The current sensing systems "all have shortcomings in one way or another," he adds. For example, radar-based systems are good for detecting other metal aircraft but not seeing things such as parachutists or balloonists. Cameras on UAVs can transmit images of what's near a UAV to a person farther away, but the cameras don't work well in clouds or if they're facing the sun.

To be reliable enough to pass regulatory muster, sense and avoid systems "will have to be better than a human," Dr. Heiges says.

Until then, there are many applications for UAVs in unpopulated areas.

One of the first markets that's really ripe for use of the technology is agriculture," says N. Dennis Bowman, extension educator, commercial agriculture-crops at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. "The ability to do surveillance of crops and livestock really fits the technology."

Farmers in general are cultivating more acres, making it more difficult to get to every patch of land to see whether there's a need for more irrigation, or whether pests or disease are affecting crops.

We're looking for breakthroughs in software that can take series of photos and stitch them together to get a big picture, but without having to fly at such a high altitude that the UAV would interfere with airplanes," he says. "At lower altitudes, you could get better resolution and more detail, but you also want to see a whole field at one time."

In Japan, farmers use UAVs for crop dusting, which isn't allowed in the U.S.—though the size of U.S. fields is too big for the carrying capacity of drones today, Mr. Bowman says.

Ranchers, whose sections are 600 acres or more, could use UAVs to locate cattle, to save crews' time when the animals need to be rounded up for procedures such as vaccinations.

CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, the Winning Partner for the DUT Racing Team

Posted: 14 Oct 2014 03:00 AM PDT

Dutch university students from TU Delft had only nine months to design and build a new version of their electric car that they hoped would once again lead them to victory in the 2014 edition of the Formula Student competition.

The team used design and simulation technology from Dassault Systèmes'  3DEXPERIENCE platform to design the DUT14, an electric car featuring numerous improvements over last year's model.

Global Design Competition

Every year, some of the world's brightest engineering students pool their talents to design what they hope will be the winning car in the annual Formula Student competition. It is an opportunity for 500 teams from all over the world to put their skills and imaginations to work during their free time, including evenings, weekends and holidays, for a good portion of the school year. In addition to the challenge, it is a tribute to the engineers who founded this competition over 30 years ago. "This international design competition was the idea of the Society of Automotive Engineers who thought that students graduating from engineering school did not have sufficient practical design experience, nor the right project management and team-working skills," explained Tim de Morée, team leader, Formula Student team at TU Delft in the Netherlands. "So they designed the Formula Student competition to enable them to acquire all three." Students must design, build, test and drive a formula-type racing car as well as create an associated business plan for potential investors. Contestants' entries are judged based on a series of tests that include speed, design, safety, reliability, and cost.

Delft University of Technology is a repeat participant in this competition and winner of numerous Formula Student races in the past.

Tim de Morée is this year's leader of TU Delft's 86 students team. Once again the students attempted to outperform the other teams in three key races – Formula Student United Kingdom (FSUK), Formula Student Germany (FSG) and Formula Student Austria (FSA) – with their new and improved DUT14. "You may think that after designing 13 cars that we benefit from our past experiences and know-how," de Morée said. "This is not entirely true since 80% of the team is new to this competition. The other 20% are the few alumni who participated in this year's adventure providing us with their design and project management expertise." As a result, de Morée's team completely redesigned a vehicle from scratch. The four-wheel drive car has four equal motors that enable the car to accelerate even faster and to regenerate energy on all wheels while braking. "This constant reuse of energy allowed us to choose a much smaller and lighter battery package," de Morée said.

Engineering Firm.com

The team is run like a small engineering company with students working in one of five departments: electronics, powertrain, vehicle dynamics, chassis and aerodynamics. "Team members are responsible for designing a part, for example the steering system or electrical wire harness. Only the most standard parts such as dampers or sensors were purchased from suppliers but we tried to do as much as we could by ourselves."

Click here to view the embedded video.

The DUT14 was designed and tested using solutions from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Every "department" completed its objectives using the 3DEXPERIENCE solutions. For example, students used CATIA for their design work and the analysis and simulation solution SIMULIA to test their design concepts. "This was very beneficial due to our tight schedule and limited resources," Marinus van des Meijs, chief engineer, said. "We had only nine months to complete the project, of which three were dedicated to design."

Lighter, More Energy Efficient

One of the team's objectives this year was to make the car lighter than last year. "With a lighter car we improve energy efficiency and performance when accelerating or braking," van des Meijs explained. "The DUT14 weighed 155 kg, down from last year's model, which weighed an already light 179 kg. We owe this success in part to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its integrated simulation solutions, which enabled us to test each design iteration with amazing speed and precision. "All five departments of our company shared the same designs so when one group made changes, the others saw the updated design in real-time," van des Meijs said. "Moreover, design history was capitalized, which allowed us to go back to previous design versions if needed at the push of a button.

Most of all, potential design problems were detected early on and not when we were physically assembling the car, which would have hurt our timing."

Also new this year were the tires for the DUT14. "We designed them ourselves this time and made them wider, with a smaller outer radius and lighter than last year," van des Meijs said. "We believed it would improve performance. Here again, without the 3DEXPERIENCE platform we would not have been able to test if our design caused interferences when steering. We were able to look at 55 different design iterations with CATIA before finding the right configuration.

The electrical department used the CATIA Electrical solution to define the wire layout, splice positions and wire lengths. "CATIA helped us to position our wiring in the most efficient way while keeping total mass on par with last year's model," van des Meijs said. "It is also important to allow slack where the connectors are and not in the rest of the wire harness. CATIA helped us place them exactly where we wanted. One key value of CATIA Electrical is its ability to quickly produce a precise design for routing. We used the Flattening feature to create the wiring drawings at a scale of 1:1. This made it easier to visualize every detail, which was very helpful," he said.

CATIA, a Winning Partner

The Society of Automotive Engineers would have been proud to see how the design competition they imagined provides participants with valuable engineering skills. The TU Delft team put these skills to good use winning the championship title at the Silverstone competition and receiving numerous awards at the Hockenheim race in Germany including the Audi ultra-award for best lightweight concept. "It was a heart-stopping few days of ups and downs but we did it," de Morée exclaimed.

With CATIA we had confidence in our design and in our ability to come up with the best vehicle possible in a very short timeframe."
