Design Efficiently

Altair offers the design community efficient collaborative simulation solutions to expertly implement their digitization strategy. Our revolutionary licensing model facilitates easy access to our trusted multi-domains, scalable and collaborative technology that is powerful and flexible.

Equipped with the best technology in early design stages, engineers will be able to address typical IoT design challenges such as:

  • Advanced sensing and actuating functions

    • Flux® – Electromagnetic and electric simulation

    • OptiStruct® – Mechanical & acoustic performance analysis

    • AcuSolve® – Thermal studies

    • solidThinking Activate™ – Model-based development for connected devices and complex systems, motion drive & control

    • solidThinking Activate™ cosimulation with MotionSolve® and other tools – Mechatronics development of sensors / actuators devices connected to multibody systems, including feedback loops

  • Cutting-edge energy management

  • Interconnections with seamless connectivity

    • FEKO® – Antenna design & placement

  • Miniaturization, while remaining competitively priced and reliable, even in harsh environments

Connect & Manage

Connect, Communicate, Manage and Trust in your Generated Big Data

Integrating M2M (Machine To Machine) in an industrial network requires optimal communication means analysis – especially for distributed smart autonomous devices - including network planning and wave propagation studies, which will remain reliable once installed.

  • Depending on the application and environmental constraints, Altair offer solutions – according to protocols and networks technologies - to analyze connectivity, define best sensors networks, path losses, probability of failure of nodes, etc.

    • WinProp™ – Signal propagation and network planning

    • solidThinking Activate™ – Model-based development for connected devices and complex systems

  • The IoT chain performance can be increased with quick modeling and simulation of end-to-end communication systems, and enabling radiations exposure safety studies.

    • FEKO – Radiation emission and immunity performance, EMC regulations

Control & Decide

Develop Your Value Proposition

Exponential growth of smart devices generating big data requires adaptable tools to efficiently extract useful and valuable insights, and at the same time allow you to make those necessary decisions which have a big impact on efficiency, productivity, costs, and safety.

Classical functions such as aggregation, storage, data visualization and dash boarding are important aspects of any IoT platform related to the activity of the connected devices. It is also essential to easily drill down into historical activity details.

Our scalable and constantly evolving cloud based solutions can be employed to predict device failures and to prescribe preventive actions based on sensor data patterns.

Flexible, intuitive and collaborative yet powerful and secure, our BI platform is the key to transforming your business model and user experience.

Strategic Industries

Whether we’re talking about the factory of the future, the energy complete value-adding chain or new trends of mobility, any industry can take advantage of simulation driven design to develop intelligent solutions and face tomorrow’s market challenge.
