Kineo software components deliver a range of solutions for automatic path planning, high speed collision detection and predictive cable performance. These technologies are used by automotive, aerospace, energy, shipbuilding and manufacturing industries in software applications for robotics and digital mock-up. This includes assembly/disassembly verification, human simulation and accessibility studies.
A rich GUI framework enables OEMs, system integrators and software vendors to develop custom software applications based on Kineo components easily, with reduced risk and time-to-market.
Kineo Collision Detector
Kineo Collision Detector performs high speed collision analysis on mesh surfaces (polyhedrons) and point cloud data to resolve collisions that would prevent the successful manufacture of an assembly, or impede the intended motion of parts. Its high performance makes it ideal for complex motion simulation environments such as robotics simulation.
Identify collision, containment, abutment and intersection lines
Measure depth of interpenetration
Obtain re-positioning information to remedy collisions
Monitor clearance (minimum distance) between parts
Kineo Flexible Cables
Kineo Flexible Cables simulates the behavior of compliant cables, such as hoses and electrical cables. It is well-suited to robot programming and simulation, where cables are subject to large deformations and high stresses in complex motion environments. A high-performance solver simulates multiple cables and supports user-interaction. Integrated collision detection ensures that cables respect collision-free motion. Stress calculations predict cable tension, flexion and torsion, while effects of gravity, cable inertia and geometric non-linearity are automatically accounted for.
KineoWorks path planning solution computes collision-free motion for machine programming and simulation in manufacturing, as well as assembly and disassembly verification in digital mock-up. Available as a component with a rich GUI, software vendors, system integrators and OEMs, custom applications can be easily developed with reduced risk and time-to-market.
Compute collision-free motion in machine tools and industrial robots
