There are some fundamental limitations to hydraulics today. One is limited energy efficiency. The second is the difficulty to control by computer what is basically a mechanical device. And together, these could be said to be limiting the potential of conventional hydraulic technology.
This is a fundamental reboot of hydraulics for the 21st century. Instead of an axial piston format, it’s a radial layout and instead of controlling or and changing the swash angle, we’re enabling and disabling cylinders in real-time, using computer-controlled valves. That gives us dramatically improved efficiency, multiple controllable outlets, which enables new system architectures with very fast digital control built-in.
