Balancing a ball on a table in a desired position is one of the most important and classical problems of control theory.

Imagine balancing a ball on a tray yourself, its not easy, right? Many of us may remember guiding a ball through a maze in the popular Labyrinth and Ball-in-a-maze puzzles and the challenge it presents, Imagine balancing a ball and manipulating the tray so that the ball traces the outline of an image like a university logo, seems impossible? You might then imagine an intelligent machine with servo motors and control systems may be able to do this, and you will be right! there is such a machine and you can program it in minutes to trace any image of your choice with a ball on a table! Welcome to the unique experience of a digital twin mechatronics simulation contest, which is a fun and quick way to learn model-based controller design concepts with a 3D + 1D system co-simulation engine, exciting prizes for the students who can send us the control model and a rendering of the animation... full training and necessary resources will be provided...
We invite you to join one of the regional contests! Please choose the one your university is located in. Regional winners have a further chance to win the global prize!

You’re invited to explore the limitless possibilities of model-based design. Enter our digital twin contest this year and you can learn the basics of how to utilize a control system, simulate motion on a 3D CAD assembly and develop photorealistic rendering, skills required for premier engineering careers of tomorrow. But wait, there’s more! Win one or more of 37 prizes! The first prize winner from each region – Asia Pacific, Americas or Europe/Middle East/Africa – could go on to be the overall global winner, earning up to…
$2,500 USD
