A method for the conceptual design of motion is proposed. State of the art dynamic system models from mathematics and physics are applied as a pool for the retrieval of knowledge analog to physical effects in design catalogs. Behavior attributes of several pool models are implemented to new motion of a single physical artifact model, carried out at a single time interval. Deduction is applied to indicate that the derived concepts feature the desired attributes as well as new emergent qualities. The effectiveness of the method is demonstrated in the design of a handling robot concept with improved energy efficiency that is a factor of 10 better compared to conventional systems.
