Overview
The use of physical prototypes for design verification is a very costly and time-consuming process. As a result, there is a trend towards design verification and analysis in virtual, simulated environments. However, creating simulations for complex electro-mechanical systems can be quite a challenging task itself. SIMKIT is a software environment which facilitates creating simulations of mechatronic systems. It allows the designer to update and refine simulations throughout the design process, from the conceptual design to the final detailed design.
