After an initial lockstep phase in which MapleSim upgrades were closely tied to those for Maple, release 6 was held back and appeared shortly after Maple 16. It may be that this marks the point when the simulation package asserts its independent existence as an application in its own right, ...
Energy Sciences - a subsidiary of Iwasaki Electric Corporation - designs and builds state-of-the-art energy curing systems for the packaging industry.
Energy Sciences originally purchased VisSim/Embedded Controls Developer to design the controller for a highspeed labeling machine for such items as ice cream and orange juice containers.
Maple's multiprocessor support is helping to speed up and simplify the design of complex magnetic field control systems at Oxford Instruments.
Maplesoft (Ontario, Canada) has announced its collaboration with Engineered Arts Limited, a company that designs and produces the revolutionary RoboThespian™ robots. The current RoboThespian is a life-sized, programmable, humanoid robot designed to be used for entertainment and communication. It can talk and sing – and even recite Shakespeare. The next ...
The sensitive and safety-critical nature of the work conducted by Babcock International makes it particularly important that the performance and calibration status of the instruments used in the lab is closely monitored. For many years, the lab has relied on Quality Analyst statistical process control (SPC) software from Northwest Analytics ...
Dr James Andrew Smith, Electrical and Biomedical engineering professor at Ryerson University, Toronto, uses MapleSim to deliver an "inductive approach" to learning, allowing students to explore systems and derive equations from the behaviours they observe.
Dr Sam Willis, a maritime historian and archaeologist, and author of nine books and numerous articles, considers EndNote a 'must-have' piece of time-saving software for personalised, scholarly research.
Recently, faculty and staff at the University of Guelph embarked upon an experiment to statistically determine the impact on students of using Maple T.A.
