Official Participant List

Overview of the May Meeting:


The May edition of the Machine-Interaction Ground Consortium will follow a similar format as MAGIC 2014. Day one will be devoted to invited talks on modeling and simulation issues in machine ground-interaction, with a focus on: optimization in engineering product development, unmanned ground vehicles: from simulation to prototyping, tire modeling and simulation, and Real-time simulation. Day two will be split between the remaining invited talks and presentations/hands-on related to Chrono. Highlights: presentations related to Chrono-Engine, Chrono::Vehicle, Chorno::FSI, Chrono::Track, and Chrono embedding in 3rd party CAD tool.
