Modeling and simulation of batteries, in conjunction with theory and experiment, are important research tools that offer opportunities for advancement of technologies that are critical to electric motors. The development of data from the application of these tools can provide the basis for managerial and technical decision-making. Together, these will continue to transform batteries for electric vehicles.

Since the early seventies, the development of the automobile has been characterized by a steady increase in the deploymnet of onboard electronics systems and software. This trend continues unabated and is driven by rising end-user demands and increasingly stringent environmental requirements. Today, almost every function onboard the modern vehicle is electronically controlled or monitored. The software-based implementation of vehicle functions provides for unparalleled freedoms of concept and design. However, automobile development calls for the accommodation of contrasting prerequisites – such as higher demands on safety and reliability vs. lower cost ceilings, longer product life cycles vs. shorter development times – along with growling proliferation of model variants. Automotive Software Engineering has established its position at the center of these seemingly conflicting opposites.

Modern vehicles have electronic control units (ECUs) to control various subsystems such as the engine, brakes, steering, air conditioning, and infotainment. These ECUs (or simply ‘controllers’) are networked together to share information, and output directly measured and calculated data to each other. This in-vehicle network is a data goldmine for improved maintenance, measuring vehicle performance and its subsystems, fleet management, warranty and legal issues, reliability, durability, and accident reconstruction. The focus of Data Acquisition from HD Vehicles Using J1939 CAN Bus is to guide the reader on how to acquire and correctly interpret data from the in-vehicle network of heavy-duty (HD) vehicles. The reader will learn how to convert messages to scaled engineering parameters, and how to determine the available parameters on HD vehicles, along with their accuracy and update rate. Written by two specialists in this field, Richard (Rick) P. Walter and Eric P.

EIA511
The Manufacturing Message Specification is an application layer standard designed to support messaging communications to and from programmable devices in a Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) environment. This environment is referred to in this standard as the manufacturing environment. This standard does not specify a complete set of services for remote programming of devices, although provision or such a set of services may be subject of future standardization efforts.

This Technical Information Report (TIR) will review the global industry battery size standards for xEV vehicles to provide guidance for those developing battery powered vehicles. Including a review of the sizes and standards that are currently being developed or used for cylindrical cells, pouch (or polymer) cells, and for prismatic can cells. The lithium-ion cell will be the focus of this survey, but module and pack level size standards, where available, will also be included.

RB9
This Reliability Bulletin is provided as a guide for engineering and managment personnel concerned with Failure Mode and Effect Analyses (FMEA). In Addition, it provides information concerning technical and functional relationship of Failure Mode and Effect Analyses to associated disciplines, as for example, Maintainability, Safety, and System Effectiveness Analyses. This Bulletin covers requirements, concepts, interface, procedures and reports of FMEA. This Bulletin should contribute to greater utilization of FMEA results and to the understanding and appreciation of the purpose of FMEA on the part of engineering and management personnel.

A guide for the use by companies contracting for design of electronic products with the Department of Defense (DOD) and other government agencies. This Bulletin present concepts and techniques for quantifying electronic equipment reliability. The techniques are responsive to the requirements of various branches of the Department of Defense and are also useful with regard to other Government agencies (e.g., NASA).

Accelerometers are transducers, or sensors, that convert acceleration into an electrical signal that can be used for airframe, drive, and propulsion system vibration monitoring and analysis within vehicle health and usage monitoring systems. This document defines interface requirements for accelerometers and associated interfacing electronics for use in a helicopter Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS). The purpose is to standardize the accelerometer-to-electronics interface with the intent of increasing interchangeability among HUMS sensors/systems and reducing the cost of HUMS accelerometers. Although this interface was specified with an internally amplified piezoelectric accelerometer in mind for Airframe and Drive Train accelerometers, this does not preclude the use of piezoelectric accelerometer with remote charge amplifier or any other sensor technology that meets the requirements given in this specification.

J2222
This SAE Standard establishes the minimum performance and endurance requirements for coiled electrical cables used for hookup between trucks, trailers and dollies. The component standards SAE J2394 (replaced SAE J1067) for cable and SAE J560 for connectors must be consulted to determine the complete performance and endurance requirements of the system. Related TMC Recommended Practices may be consulted for information associated with selection, installation and inspection of these coiled electrical cables. This document is intended to set out requirements for the majority of conditions rather than for specialized applications or environments.

The increase in the number of silicon foundries and CAD/CAE system and workstation companies, and the problem of movement of data among in-house design systems has made a standard interchange format for electronic design data essential. The benefits of the general adoption of a standard interchange format are important and far reaching. The customer receives a much wider variety of feasible choices, and free competition in both CAEYCAD system/tool businesses and foundry businesses is enhanced. The electronic circuit designer and customer of CAE/CAD system and foundry service can expect compatibility among these products. The designer can choose equipment and services best suited for a particular task with a minimum of overhead. Foundries can work with customers regardless of the CAE/CAD equipment that the customer is using.
