Maplesoft is working on the Symbolic Control project with Toyota using new symbolic computation methods in robust control design, with a strong focus on methods for linear, nonlinear, and parametric systems.
The main goal is ground-breaking research that leads to the implementation of symbolic design and analysis methods for linear, nonlinear and parametric robust control.
Research will allow developers to consider system nonlinearities, modelling inaccuracies and parametric uncertainties in the design process.
Toyota expects to shorten development time while maintaining high quality results.
Model simplification enables the conversion of high-level descriptive models into smaller executable models for faster execution and provides for better analysis, higher efficiency, and more accurate simulation.
