<!- Dynamic servo platforms for VI-grade simulators, with nine redundant degrees of freedom, consisting of two parallel kinematic manipulators with three (cable driven) and six degrees of freedom respectively, placed in series with each other.
The device has been designed and sized using techniques developed ad hoc for parallel kinematic machines and making extensive use of optimization methods, in particular of the genetic type, which are extremely effective in kinetostatic optimization problems.
To guarantee dynamic performances, specific simulation models have been developed for calculating the dynamics of the machine and for evaluating the ways in which it vibrates.
The project concerned not only the mechanical part but also the control and command system of the machine.

Requirements: Automotive simulation, advanced robotics, high level control, Digital Twin
Ownership: VI-grade
Milestones: started in the 1st quarter 2018, 2020 advanced prototype test and first simulator sold. ->


[Digital Twin]

<!- HIL is an increasingly used technique in the development of high performances devices.
By means of this method it is possible to simulate sensors, actuators and mechanical components of a system before they are integrated.
The fields in which it is most diffused are automotive systems, aerospace, robotics, power system generators and offshore and marine engineering.
The high performance required by the HIL system in order to perform the simulation tasks needs an accurate mechanical electronic and software design. A fundamental tool in the support of a design system of this type is Co-Simulation.

Requirements: Co-simulation, parallel kinematic manipulator, HIL.
Milestones: presentation at NAFEMS World Congress 2019 in Quebec City, Canada. ->



<!- Development of a HIL (Hardware In the Loop) system through a model of control created in a Digital Twin environment. The application is developed for simulations in the field of renewable wind energy production. The project is part of a wider collaboration with the Polytechnic of Milan, which brought to the creation of a robotic system, installed in the wind tunnel of the Polytechnic itself, capable of simulating the behavior of a wind turbine floating in the open sea.

Requirement: Simulation, mathematical models, characterization of natural phenomena, advanced robotics, high level control, Digital Twin
Partner: Politecnico di Milano
Project start and project status: 2016, operational simulation system at the wind tunnel of the Politecnico di Milano. ->


[Delta Shaker]

<!- The project concerns the development and accomplishment of a three degrees of freedom “shaker” characterizing the response of the human body to multi-axial vibrations. The project is carried out in collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano and with Trio Sistemi e Misura srl.

The range of frequencies required along the three axes reaches 30 Hz, with a maximum amplitude of 30mm vertically and 20mm in the horizontal plane.

Requirement:  Biomechanical simulation, advanced robotics, high level control
Partner: Milan Polytechnic, Lecco campus, Trio systems
Project start and project status: 2018. Operational simulator 2019 ->



<!- The project foresees the creation of a highly dynamic moving system with three degrees of freedom, suitable for the structural analysis of bodies exposed to a fluid stream.
For effective/actual load distribution, the system includes two gantry subsystems.
The aim is to allow the analysis of structures subject to conditions of stress and deformation of great magnitude, coming either from external sources and from self-induced movements.

Requirements: advanced simulation and control, high mechanical system dynamics
Milestones: Kick-off: second half of 2019. ->
