New Simulation Engine: Hyfydy

SCONE now supports Hyfydy, which is a new simulation engine that provides a 50-100x speed gain over OpenSim – using the same muscle and contact models.

*Optimization of 10 a second gait simulation in SCONE (1000 generations), using [Geyer & Herr 2010] for control, [Millard et al. 2013] for muscle dynamics, and a non-linear Hunt-Crossley contact force model. The optimizations were performed on a 4-core i7 Intel CPU.

Hyfydy is already being utilized by several academic institutions for biomechanics research. For more information and a free trial license, please visit hyfydy.com.
