Section 2: Down the Rabbit Hole
So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid).
Whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.
There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to Rabbit say to itself, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late"
Section 3: The Rabbit Took a Watch Out of His Waistcoat
Looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.
Predict Dynamic Performance Before Physical Prototyping
As robots become lighter and operate under higher loads, traditional design methods (such as using pen-and-paper calculations or software to model just kinematics and simple dynamics) are losing effectiveness.
Early stage modeling of dynamic effects such as structural deformation and gear backlash are playing an increasingly important role in robot performance.
Robot designers can increase the performance of their products by using multibody simulation (MBS) software to simulate the transient dynamic behavior of the complete robot mechanism and control algorithm.
How Does it Work?
MBS Software goes far beyond kinematic modeling
It provides a complete working prototype of the robot and task that it is performing, including handling, manufacturing or any other robot activities
Enabling designers to understand the effects of:
Allowing designers to calculate the robot trajectory with a much higher level of accuracy
To accurately simulate and diagnose the dynamic performance of the robot under any operating scenario prior to building a physical prototype
This increases robot performance while helping companies get to market earlier, by reducing the amount of physical testing required
