IFWEFollowing our previous blog post on IF WE Challenge third winner Andjelic Zoran, the turn is now to our second prize winner Ismael Cendejas. Ismael is coming from Mexico, but has recently studied in University of Victoria, BC, Canada. His winning IF WE Dream was: “IF WE design more exoskeletons we can help more people with different capacity”.

As a matter of fact, Ismael is working on two projects in this domain:

I have two projects about Exoskeletons. The first is about the Design of an Exoskeleton for training people with Parkinson’s Disease, which is part of a thesis of a bachelor. The second one is a Design and Matlab simulation of a portable exoskeleton for hand rehabilitation. […] The most critical engineering discipline in these projects I think is Systems Engineering because all the diseases and patients are different, in that way they need to be treated personally, implying the necessity to develop a program for each one.

Ismael was kind enough to share the following pictures with us :)

Ismael has been using CATIA and SIMULIA for his project. As a winner of the second prize, we’re happy to provide Ismael with a high performance laptop (shown above) coming with 3DS software, thus adding our small contribution to this project with a great social impact potential.

Keep up the good work, Ismael!  :D

 

Teachers at Dassault Systèmes (TADS) Citizenship Program

Last Summer, we piloted a program on the 3DS Boston Campus called Teachers at Dassault Systèmes (TADS). We partnered with local Waltham High School to provide a 6-week summer internship for 2 teachers. Not only did they learn about Dassault Systèmes as an example of a global, innovative, technology company, but they took our Passion for Innovation program, Khufu Reborn, and created a 3-lesson engineering design challenge for their classrooms.

This program is part of our larger corporate citizenship commitment to improving Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education across North America. We have created a 3-minute film about the TADS program and have entered it in a film festival sponsored by the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship (BCCCC).

The TADS program has 3 main goals:

  1. Educate Teachers – Provide teachers in our communities with first-hand experience about STEM careers at innovation driven companies, that they can then pass on to their students and encourage them pursue these types of careers and classwork
  2. Educate Students – Enable teachers with 3DS solutions and passion for innovation programs that are not currently available for use in a classroom, but could potentially be very valuable for teachers to use to inspire young people to dream bigger and pursue STEM based futures.
  3. Educate Communities – To be a positive feature in the communities that we work by increasing awareness of Dassault Systèmes by members of the Waltham Public Schools community

Oh, and if you liked our video, cast your vote for the Dassault Systemes TADS video at BCCCC’s Film Festival for corporate citizenhip videos! Thank you!  :-)

Do you know NAO?

Today, we had the pleasure to welcome a new colleague in our 3DS Academy team … NAO:D

NAO is a programmable, 57-cm tall humanoid robot! Created by French company Aldebaran Robotics, NAO was introduced for the first time in 2006 (and we interviewed his maker Bruno Maissonier in 2010). It measures 56 centimeters, weighs 11 pounds and have a capacity of 25 degrees of freedom, allowing reproducing the majority of human movements (walking, holding an object, playing football, dancing…).

It’s also a walking computer on steroids: 2 CPU (one Intel ATOM 1.6 ghz), 2 HD 920p cameras 30 fps for vision, 4 microphones, Wi-Fi, 9 tactile sensors, inertial platform consisting of an accelerometer, two gyro-meters, sonar rangefinder, 8 pressure sensors…

Dassault Systèmes, through its partnership with Aldebaran Robotics, innovates by proposing a new software platform (3DEXPERIENCE platform) to develop new experiences with NAO.  It is a new step after NAO Tutorials for SolidWorks. As such, the 3DS academy team has modeled the robot using the 3DEXPERIENCE apps and is now programming its behavior with CATIA Systems. We will certainly keep you informed about every progress the team will make! :)
