Siemens PLM Software releases version 5.0 of Kineo software

Version 5.0 of  Kineo software components is for path planning, collision detection and cable simulation. It includes:

  • Kineo Flexible Cables – for modeling deformable cables during motion simulation
  • KineoWorks Interact – a graphical user interface for developing Kineo-enabled applications quickly and easily
  • KineoWorks and Kineo Collision Detector – a capabilities and implementation enhancements

Kineo Flexible Cables

This software component has been developed for applications in robotics. The cables that power articulated robot systems are prone to failure from repeated stress and collisions in the operating environment.  Kineo Flexible Cables enables you to model collision-free cable behavior in motion simulation applications.

KineoWorks Interact

This software component enables users to simulate cable path planning and collision detection.  It helps users customize a rich graphical user interface for developing complex applications.

KineoWorks Interact is for OEMs and System Integrators with limited software development resources, who recognize the value in developing state-of-the-art software solutions for robot simulation, digital mock-up, accessibility studies and related applications.

KineoWorks and Kineo Collision Detector

KineoWorks offers an integrated tool for computing an envelope around static and moving parts. In the case of static parts or assemblies, this “wrapping” capability generates light-weight data representations. User-defined levels of tessellation enable users to represent space allocation, without exposing confidential product detail. In the case of moving parts, a comprehensive “swept volume” helps users determine space allocation for moving parts.

Kineo Collision Detector offers direct support for collision and clearance analysis on point clouds, with no need to convert the point cloud data.

Both components also benefit from a new C# interface, support Visual Studio 2015 as well as compatibility with KineoWorks Interact product for developing rich applications quickly and easily.
