Modeling of driver plays an important role in predicting vehicle performance accurately by a forward looking vehicle system models. It is quite difficult to capture driver behavior accurately as different driver behaves differently based on his/her judgment & reflex action. In this paper an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) based driver model is developed & compared with a traditional PID based driver model. The ANN driver model is developed based on a real accelerator pedal by a driver to follow standard drive cycle for a medium duty truck on a chassis dynamometer. The proposed ANN driver model is simulated with a validated vehicle model and comparison shows that the ANN driver model predicts vehicle performance better than PID based driver model. This method of developing driver model would be useful to improve performance prediction & control algorithm development using a vehicle system model.

Greater customer awareness is driving the automotive industry to constantly look to innovate and ensure that greater time, efforts and considerable resources are spent in developing a better vehicle. As we move away from noisy vehicles, the differentiating parameter in vehicles is the perception of quality in the vehicle noise or sound. As the masking effect due to overall vehicle noise level abates, many low noise sources gain prominence, which directly influences the perception of noise refinement. Hence, the concept of vehicle interior noise is not only limited to lower noise levels but has also extended to better sound quality (SQ). SQ technique involves use of relevant parameters for quantifying a subjective quality into an objective quantity. This paper will look at parameters relevant to subjective perception of vehicle interior noise and consider a benchmarking methodology targeting vehicle sound quality. A few vehicle test conditions relevant for vehicle SQ perception were identified.

All Automotive companies conduct various performance and Endurance tests on automotive bodies, doors by using Pneumatic Actuators. These Actuators can only give linear or rotary motion. Therefore these can neither simulate the complex motion of Human arm nor can they simulate the Force and pressure induced by the Human palm or Human back on the body domain parts. Each test need to have different test setup. This paper discusses how a system of industrial Robot coupled with intelligent Gripper with sensors and feedback signal to robot can be used to simulate the effect of Human touch during testing.

Automotive industry is moving towards a stage that anticipates probability of accidents and instructs safety system to take immediate actions. Safety systems in automotive domain protect vehicle occupants and even pedestrians from accidents. High powered engines and good road infrastructure naturally thrills people to drive at very high speed which would result into forward collision. With the help of latest technologies, such accidents can be avoided and thereby many persons would be saved from major injuries. This does not indicate that people could drive as they wish irresponsibly. The safety systems will help vehicle occupants to be safe in case of inadvertent errors. Nowadays safety has become an important feature to be considered for selling vehicles. This paper will provide an overview on the operations of various advanced safety systems such as pre-crash, Electronic brake assist, Lane Keeping support, and speed alert system, Safety systems for teenagers, early warning car to car communication and co-operative safety system.

The Team aims towards designing, validating and fabricating a three wheeled hybrid human powered electric vehicle, which has a capability to act as a good viable option for city local transportation. The vehicle would be capable of being driven electrically as well as by a single driver. There are three proposed models of the vehicle: racing, commercial and agricultural. Team designed and manufactured the racing model in their college campus to test the vehicle in the extremities. All other models are designed based on the success of the racing model. The vehicle is designed keeping ergonomics and value engineering in mind. The vehicle is designed to give high performance at a lower rate. The racing design is capable of carrying two riders, of 5′7″ height and weighing 75 kg maintaining a average speed of 28km/hr. Our Vehicle further is designed keeping in view the future aspect by using green filters for rural Indian population and innovative battery charging assist for city conditions.

This SAE Standard specifies a stationary test method for determining the masking effect caused by parts of the base machine with equipment as specified by the manufacturer on a visibility test circle around the machine from the eye position point of a seated operator. It specifies a method for evaluating the maskings that may be present. It applies to earthmoving machines which have a specific operator’s station. It does not consider evaluation of maskings which may be present with operational movement of working tools.

The intent of this SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is to describe the effects of the environmental changes on human physiology and the protection required to avoid negative consequences resulting from altitude exposure. A brief presentation of basic terms and considerations required to discuss the topic of human physiology at altitude are followed by an overview of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Issues specifically related to human exposure to altitude are then discussed. Hypoxia, hyperventilation, barotrauma, and decompression sickness (DCS) are each addressed: hypoxia is defined as an insufficient supply of oxygen to the tissues, hyperventilation is an excessive rate of ventilation with ultimate consequences on acido-basic equilibrium, barotrauma is injury caused by pressure: most commonly referencing injury to the walls of the Eustachian tube and the ear drum due to the difference between atmospheric and intratympanic pressures, and DCS is related to an excess of nitrogen in the body tissues.

The Road/Lane Departure Warning System is a crash-avoidance technology which warns drivers if they are drifting (or have drifted) out of their lane or from the road. This warning system is designed to help prevent the possibility of a run-off-road crash. This system will not take control of the vehicle; it will only let the driver know that he/she needs to steer back into the lane. This warning system is not designed as a lane-change monitor, or a merging system which warns of other vehicles. This informational report applies to OEM and after-market Road/Lane Departure warning systems for light-duty vehicles on relatively straight roads with a radius of curvature of 500m or more, and under good weather conditions. Future revisions should consider the implications of newer variations on the user experience.

Recently, there have been many reports about developing control systems that actuate engines and brakes based on friction circle. We are researching the control system for motorcycles, which adds the return torque of throttle grip based on it for informing the limit of tire grip on the driving wheel. This throttle grip is a haptic display, offers haptic signals by controlling the motor connected to the throttle grip as a HMI. From the results of riding tests, the system was found helpful for riders to control the throttle grip as well as feeling easy about knowing the limit of tire grip. But it is known that the friction circle of a driving wheel depends on the normal force which changes by the gradient of road, acceleration and so on. The compensated control for changing the normal force by gradient was made to improve the throttle grip control system. The results of riding tests with the compensated system, we found that this system is important for the controls based on friction circle and it makes the haptic signals come close to the timing that riders want.
