Robotic technology has improved dramatically in the past decade, and applications are getting more exciting. A whole new generation of engineering and scientific techniques have emerged that has fuelled the rapid pace of innovation within the modern robotics community. What was once the stuff of science fiction seems to be within reach for the engineering community! The use of symbolic techniques has rapidly evolved in the robotics industry, and many streamlined products are beginning to enter mainstream engineering. MapleSim, the system-level modeling platform from Maplesoft, is an example. Aside from the introduction of a component-based physical modeling graphical user interface, there are other technological advancements under the hood.
