This 2014 edition of the Automotive Cockpits and Dashboards Report is the latest in the series of reports by Supplier Business looking at trends and developments in the vehicle cockpit space. Over time we have seen many changes in terms of the design and structure of the main modules and components that go to make up the dashboard and cockpit element of the vehicle’s interior. In particular the increasing level of in-vehicle connectivity has caused interior designers to rethink the layout and content of the dashboard and center console. In this report the main trends and developments are highlighted, with particular reference to examples of the way in which the industry has responded to the challenge. The strongest influence on the vehicle’s cockpit and dashboard continues to be the requirement for in-vehicle connectivity. Consumer demand for seamless connectivity between home, office and vehicle dominates the cockpit’s interior design and structure. The technology required to provide the level of connectivity demanded by users is increasingly complex and, by necessity, has to embrace advanced driver active safety systems (ADAS) and the anticipated development of semi-autonomous and ultimately, fully autonomous vehicles.

This ARP provides insights on how to perform a cost benefit analysis (CBA) to determine the return on investment that would result from implementing an integrated Health Management (HM) system on an air vehicle. The word “integrated” refers to the combination or “roll up” of sub-systems health management tools to create a platform centric system. The document describes the complexity of features that can be considered in the analysis, the different tools and approaches for conducting a CBA and differentiates between military and commercial applications. This document is intended to help those who might not necessarily have a deep technical understanding or familiarity with HM systems but want to either quantify or understand the economic benefits (i.e., the value proposition) that a HM system could provide. Prognostics is a capability within some HM systems that provides an estimation of remaining useful life (RUL) or time to failure and so Prognostic Health Management (PHM) is used where this predictive element exists.

This document describes the features and functions of the CXPI protocol. The CXPI protocol provides some selected features of the Controller Area Network (CAN) protocol implemented on a UART-based data link for mainly HMI (Human Machine Interface) of road vehicles electric systems. This information report is a description of the CXPI protocol, which is specified in the JASO D015 CXPI document published by JASO. The JASO D015 CXPI specification is the normative reference for the CXPI protocol. The CXPI specification is maintained by JSAE (Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan, Inc.). This information report does not supersede any information contained in the JASO D015 CXPI specification. It has the sole purpose of providing textual description and graphical illustrations to ease reading and interpretation of the CXPI protocol.

This document contains three annexes to the SAE AS5506 Standard - the SAE Architecture Analysis and Description Language. The first annex, Annex A Graphical AADL Notation, defines a set of graphical symbols for the graphical AADL notation. These graphical symbols can be used to express relationships between components, features, and connections in an AADL model. Graphical AADL diagrams are legal in accordance with the AADL core standard if the AADL model being presented graphically is legal and if the correct graphical symbols are used. For example, a graphical editor is not permitted to create a connection whose source and destination are not connected. Graphical presentations of AADL models are permitted to show subsets of legal AADL models. For example, property values may be entered through a property sheet or dialog box. The figures in this annex present different views of an AADL model. These views are not prescriptive, but intended to illustrate possible views and layouts. The second annex, Annex C AADL Meta Model and Interchange Formats, defines the AADL meta model and XML-based interchange formats for AADL models.

The federal government and industry have moved to concurrent acquisition and development processes using integrated process teams (IPTs). These processes are supported by timely, accurate, cross functional access to data within an integrated data environment (IDE) enabled by advances in information technology (IT). Since the advent of acquisition reform in 1994, Data Management (DM) practices have evolved from being directed by a prescriptive set of standards and procedures to use of the guidance in a principles-based standard -- ANSI/EIA 859.

GEIA Handbook 859 provides implementation guidance for ANSI/EIA 859, with discussions of applications of the standard's principles, tools, examples, and case studies. Handbook 859 is organized according to the lifecycle of data management and covers activities from the pre-RFP stage through records disposition. It also provides annexes on topics which apply at multiple stages in the lifecycle, such as protection of data, continuous improvement and knowledge management.

Abstract When employing in-car active sound generation (ASG) and active noise cancellation (ANC), the accurate knowledge of the vehicle interior sound pressure distribution in magnitude as well as phase is paramount. Revisiting the ANC concept, relevant boundary conditions in spatial sound fields will be addressed. Moreover, within this study the controllability and observability requirements in case of ASG and ANC were examined in detail. This investigation focuses on sound pressure measurements using a 24 channel microphone array at different heights near the head of the driver. A shaker at the firewall and four loudspeakers of an ordinary in-car sound system have been investigated in order to compare their sound fields. Measurements have been done for different numbers of passengers, with and without a dummy head and real person on the driver seat. Transfer functions have been determined with a log-swept sine technique. According to the measurements, the shape of the sound field produced by the shaker is more balanced than one produced by the loudspeakers, albeit the shaker's frequency response is limited to low frequencies.

Abstract The noise vibration and harshness (NVH) simulation of electric machines becomes increasingly important due to the use of electric machines in vehicles. This paper describes a method to reduce the calculation time and required memory of the finite element NVH simulation of electrical machines. The stator of a synchronous electrical machine is modeled as a two-dimensional problem to reduce investigation effort. The electromagnetic forces acting on the stator are determined by FE-simulation in advance. Since these forces need to be transferred from the electromagnetic model to the structural model, a coupling algorithm is necessary. In order to reduce the number of nodes, which are involved in the coupling between the electromagnetic and structural model, multipoint constraints (MPC) are used to connect several coupling nodes to one new coupling node. For the definition of the new coupling nodes, the acting load is analyzed with a 2D-FFT. After the coupling with MPCs, forces are only acting on the newly defined coupling nodes.

Abstract The need for more durable mobility has led to a rapid introduction of new electric systems on vehicles. The result of the application of electrified drivelines is a shift in noise energy from the low mid frequencies towards the upper end of the audible range. Following this, the need for higher frequency noise control and accurate measurement has grown. The measurement of the acoustic transfer or vehicle body isolation at higher frequencies poses a challenge for the diffraction, source level and omni-directionality. This paper shows an improved method that increases the accuracy of acoustic transfer function measurements from the components to the ear at high frequencies. A simulation model based on the Boundary Element Methods(BEM) has been made to analyze higher frequency behavior of noise sources during reciprocal measurements up to 12 kHz. Some dedicated hardware was developed in combination with a new process. The simulation results have been validated by experimental test results, and application tests have been done on a full vehicle.
