SkAD Labs Awarded CTI Reseach Project
SkeletonCAx, the next generation virtual product development platform, has been awarded a Swiss government grant from the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI). The approved project will be focused on further pushing the boundaries in developing SkAD Labs’ future standard of engineering design software, and to expand the research efforts on its underlying technology.
“We are radically changing the way engineers are developing their products”, said Dr. Bogdan Lazar, CEO and Co-Founder of SkAD Labs. “We have researched several years on a technology that seamlessly fuses design and simulation capabilities, and will save our customers up to 50% in their product development cycle. Through this project, we will be able to increase our research headcount to further expand our technology leadership and widen our intellectual property”.
Two scientific positions will be opened up as part of the project in cooperation with the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) for the duration of one year. Follow-up projects are possible and likely.
About SkAD Labs Sàrl
SkAD Labs Sàrl was incorporated in July 2016 as a spin-out from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) with the objective to develop and commercially deploy a breakthrough Computer-Aided Design and Simulation software based on Medial Axis Representation™ (MAR™) technology developed within the former LICP Laboratory of EPFL. SkAD Labs is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, with offices in Timișoara, Romania.
SkeletonCAx is a novel a virtual product development software promising to deliver a 50% speed up in the development process of engineering products. SkeletonCAx is an advanced, intelligent system, capable to autonomously create designs, simulate physical behavior and achieve a specific optimization goal. As a consequence, engineering product design will become as easy as running software code: With a press of one button.
