    In silico: Medical device innovation through simulation with Voxdale

    In silico: Medical device innovation through simulation with Voxdale

    Welcome to another episode of Engineer Innovation— a podcast for engineers by engineers. Because we all want to build a better tomorrow faster.
    A big reason most devices never get to market is the cost of developing and testing viable prototypes. Most companies will run out of capital before their product is fully certified.
    Lowering the cost of development opens up the door for great innovations by bold startups to reach the market faster. If these innovations are, for instance, in the medical device space, their arrival to the market will improve the quality of life for many people.
    One of the ways to lower the cost of product development is by digitalizing the development process. This involves building and testing a virtual prototype by simulating real-life occurrences before building the cost-intensive physical prototype.
    Today, we're joined by Tim Dieryckx, CEO of Voxdale – a company that helps entrepreneurs and professionals accelerate the development of great hardware & IoT devices.
    Join us as we discuss the importance of engineering simulation in medical device development.
    In this episode, you will learn:
    How Voxdale helps startups (02:07)The role that simulation plays in designing medical devices (03:29)What “in silico” means in the context of medical device development (06:13)The benefits of simulating with “in silico” (08:18)How simulation helps lower the cost of a medical device (15:58)

    Drones and Sustainability

    Drones and Sustainability

    Welcome to another episode of Engineer Innovation— a podcast for engineers by engineers. Because we all want to build a better tomorrow, faster.
    Most new technology products have a sustainability aspect attached to them. This is happening because we have very strict environmental regulations in many countries. Engineers now have to show regulators the environmental impact their products will have before they can get certified.
    This push for sustainability has also led to more investments in products such as drones and electric cars that reduce emissions. For instance, drones’ small carbon footprint makes them the perfect replacement for fossil fuel-reliant trucks in delivering packages. However, there is a need for a clear regulatory framework to manage their operations in populated areas.
    Today, I’m joined by David Almer, Portfolio Development Executive at Siemens Digital Industries Software.
    Join us as we discuss what the future of drones will look like and their role in promoting sustainability.
    In this episode, you will learn:
    Why sustainability is important (02:02)What sparked his interest in drones (04:39)The barriers blocking the use of drones in package delivery (07:41)Consideration made when developing drones (10:42)How drones assist in inspecting wind turbines (13:17)

    The Use of Machine Learning in Simulation

    The Use of Machine Learning in Simulation

    Welcome to another episode of Engineer Innovation— a podcast for engineers, by engineers. Because we all want to build a better tomorrow, faster.
    Simulation allows engineers to understand how their designs will perform under different circumstances. It is an essential part of any development process as it gives confidence to designs before the actual manufacturing can start.
    Without simulation, it would be difficult to determine which combination of components and component design can give the best performance. The high number of different combinations that can be used for complex designs presents a big problem for engineers.
    Machine learning is used to narrow down workable combinations, thereby, freeing up the engineers to test and improve what can work. It does this by analyzing existing data to create models that closely reflect what different combinations would result in.
    Today, I’m joined by Justin Hodges, a Simcenter Machine Learning Tech Specialist.
    Join us as we discuss how machine learning is used to accelerate the simulation process.
    In this episode, you will learn:
    The use of ML in simulation (00:53)The benefits of using reduced order models (04:53)An example where ML models have been successfully applied in simulation (10:06)The best place to start if you wish to start using AI in simulation (12:01)

    Noise Testing Electric Vehicles

    Noise Testing Electric Vehicles

    Welcome to another episode of Engineer Innovation— a podcast for engineers, by engineers. Because we all want to build a better tomorrow, faster. 
    One of the main differences between combustion engine vehicles and electric vehicles is the level of noise generated. Combustion engines are loud while the latter is very quiet.
    While the lack of noise can be interpreted as a benefit, it also presents a few problems. First, it makes the vehicle unsafe to other road users who rely on vehicle sounds to understand the speed and direction of movement. It also unmasks other noises such as the aircon and motor thumping noises that are masked by engine noise in combustion vehicles.
    This is why noise testing is an important concept in electric vehicles. It allows OEMs to understand how they can reduce unnecessary noise and introduce active noise for safety and comfort purposes.
    I’m your host, Chad Ghalamz. Today, I’m joined by Katleen Michiels, who heads a testing group within Engineering Services in the Center of Excellence of Performance Engineering. 
    Join us as we discuss the importance of noise testing in electric vehicle development.
    In this episode, you will learn:
    Katleen’s view on electric cars (04:00)What testing electric vehicles entails (05:48)Differences between combustion engine vehicles and electric vehicles (08:10)The most common misunderstanding about vehicle testing (11:05)The importance of active sound in electric vehicles (14:45)
