Tuning the many electronic variables to ensure that a vehicle's engine performs according to its mission profile ultimately relies upon a competent calibrator. Because proper calibration is a critical aspect of customer satisfaction and emissions certification, skilled calibrators are in high demand in the auto industry. This Academy is designed to provide a foundation for those interested in entering the field of calibration engineering through hands-on exercises and detailed instruction on the base principles of calibration.

The advent of digital computers and the availability of ever cheaper and faster micro processors have brought a tremendous amount of control system applications to the automotive industry in the last two decades. From engine and transmission systems, to virtually all chassis subsystems (brakes, suspensions, and steering), some level of computer control is present. Control systems theory is also being applied to comfort systems such as climate control and safety systems such as cruise control or collision mitigation systems.

Connected vehicles are increasingly seen as a target for cybersecurity attacks. A key differentiator for the automotive industry is the use of cyber-physical systems, where a successful cybersecurity attack can affect physical entities. Often involving embedded electronics and real time control, these systems require different solutions in addition to established IT security principles and reactive responses to threats. Cybersecurity needs to be designed and built into cyber-physical systems throughout the development lifecycle to provide defense in depth.

Powertrain as-installed subsystems have a common fundamental function to perform in harmony, enabling the engine to power the vehicle and/or accessories. There is a need to avoid issues such as idle roughness and to realize these are system interaction issues. For example, modal alignment affects idle roughness, and improving idle roughness can affect fuel economy. This 8-hour Ford online course describes the function and major interfaces of powertrain as-installed driveline subsystems. It also discusses Design Verification System (DVS) metrics/performance requirements for each subsystem and how each subsystem affects other subsystems.

The Ford Powertrain Controls (PTC) online course introduces the critical role the powertrain controls system plays in providing excellent vehicle performance, fuel economy, driveability, and emissions. The course describes the powertrain controls system components, including sensors and actuators. The information is presented from a functional, interface diagram, and p-diagram perspective, to enable reliable and robust powertrain operation. In addition, the course emphasizes powertrain controls interactions with internal and external interfaces.

In this course, Dr. William Mark McVea details the transmission's primary functions - to provide drivability characteristics to the vehicle and adaptive connectivity between the engine and the remainder of the fixed function driveline. The discussion then focuses on the latest transmission systems designed to achieve the most efficient engine operation. Current designs, the components and sub-systems used, their functional modes, how they operate, and the inter-relationships are examined.
