LEDs are now acknowledged as the mainstream standard light source of what might reasonably be called ‘the future already in progress’. Their small size, powerful light emission, extreme reliability, low energy requirement and long lifespan mean that LEDs continue to make quick inroads in automotive sectors governed by cost and performance demands alike. Indeed, since the last edition of this report was published in 2010, the sector has continued to witness a blistering rate of innovation, and LEDs have now broken every automotive application barrier. Nevertheless, there are other light source technologies that have sprung from LED research and development, and some are poised to supplement – or even, in certain applications, supplant them.

This master report summarizing and forecasting every sector of the EV industry remains unique. It adds new sectors as they become substantial, the latest being car-like micro-EVs homologated as quadricycles in Europe. Many profitable niches are emerging just as the largest major sectors are changing in importance; the industrial and commercial sector is now bigger and much more profitable than e-cars, and is set to remain so for at least eight more years. All components are changing with supercapacitors sometimes replacing or partly replacing batteries and also new types of battery, energy harvesting, power electronics and structure powering growth. Disruptive change is now the norm and the fruits of all this are truly spectacular; including such things as the Marian fast- surface boat that acts as a submarine when necessary, the fixed-wing plane that will stay aloft for five years on sunshine and the flying jet ski.

Rear underrun protection device is crucial for rear impact and rear under-running of the passenger vehicles to the heavy duty trucks. Rear underrun protection device design should obey the safety regulative rules and successfully pass several test conditions. The objective and scope of this paper is the constrained optimization of the design of a rear underrun protection device (RUPD) beam of heavy duty trucks for impact loading using correlated CAE and test methodologies. In order to minimize the design iteration phase of the heavy duty truck RUPD, an effective, real-life testing correlated, finite element model have been constructed via RADIOSS software. Later on, Pareto Optimization has been applied to the finite element model, by constructing designed experiments. The best solution has been selected in terms of cost, manufacturing and performance. Finally, real-life verification testing has been applied for the correlation of the optimum solution.

This book tells the improbable stories of Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering and the iFoundry incubator at the University of Illinois. That either one survived is story enough, but what they found out together changes the course of education transformation forever: • How trust is key to unleashing young, courageous engineers. • How engineers need to move from a narrow technical education to one that actively engages six minds. • How emotion and culture-not content, curriculum & pedagogy-are the crucial elements of change. • How all stakeholders can collaborate to disrupt the status quo. A Whole New Engineer is a book that seriously looks at the coming revolution in engineering.

The objective of this course is to provide an in-depth understanding of the concepts and principles involved in the Review and Configuration Audit process. It is intended for an individual who has completed a basic introductory course in CM and who requires the deeper knowledge of a CM practitioner rather than a superficial overview. Technical review and product audit practices described in this text are based on Government requirements. This emphasis is made because the Department of Defense DOD) represents a major customer of goods and services and because the referenced specifications and standards reflect good business practices refined over many years of usage. For commercial companies producing items for other companies or the public, many of these reviews and audits may not be formally implemented. They are, however, an integral and essential part of the systems engineering process.

This guideline is not intended to provide detailed instructions for implementing an automated CM system. It is intended to provide a framework for planning the automation of CM functions by identifying the issues and potential problems to be considered. We begin with a look at the current problems encountered with the use of manual and semiautomated CM approaches. In order to aid in the cultural acceptance of a fully automated CM system, the benefits of automation are reviewed and the issues of the psychology or change are discussed. Finally, this guideline focuses on automating the CM functions: identification, configuration control, status accounting, and audit. Given current technology and the constraints of available resources, this seciton discusses some of the concerns which must be addressed in order to achieve a successful implementation.

In today's high technology environment, a variety of management tools have been developed within government and industry to govern the fast changing technical environment. There is a particular demand in industry for formal education in the disciplines of Configuration Management and Data Management (CM/DM). Briefly, Configuration Management is the disciplined continuous identification of design and control of changes. Data Management ensures that the data (technical, financial, administrative) delivered as part of a contract comply with contractual requirements and are adequate to satisfy the intended use or functions (e.g. logistics, maintenance, reprocurement).

Computer software libraries are an essential element of a software configuration management (CM) system. However, the term, "library" while commonly used in the world of software, has had no significance in the field of CM until recently. Further, even in the software, world, the term has several different meanings. The purpose of this bulletin is to relate the term to the software CM system, e.g., the role of a library in the release of software. It describes the three types of libraries which are involved in the system, it discusses the principles and factors which affect their design and it presents a model, including samples o records and forms. Also included is a "univerals" position description for a librarian.

To the reader, this publication may appear to have been prepared soley to provide guidance for companies doing business with the Department o Defense (DoD). Such is not the case. The DoD, as the largest procurer of dta, has the greatest number of regulations governing the acquisition of data, and, therefore, presents the most problems to the data provider. However, principles whick apply to all data acquisitions and their implementation can be tailored to satisfy various customers. The present day world of technical advancement sees increasing demands for recorded information. This documentation provides a means for communicating technical ideas, presents plans for developing them, gives instructions to those who will build, operate and service hardware, records the results of technical performance tests and evaluation, and provides visibility for managing technical and business aspects that are necessary to assure program success.

Abstract Using a Model-based approach to the embedded software development process contributed significantly in reducing the development time while also supporting a high quality level of the software code implementation. However, based on our experience with CNH Industrial application scenarios, involving multiple suppliers from vehicle ECU to the engine ECU, it only addressed the need of the implementation phase without any consistent influence in other software development life-cycle phases such as requirements and specification. Mandatory functional safety requirements, new complex functionalities, and reducing time to delivery while maintaining high quality level of software are driving factors in our new software development projects. Ideally the adoption of international standards, as for example the ISO 12007, and the safety standards, as the ISO 26262, ISO 25119 and ISO 13849, should represent a consistent guide to develop software.

In order to satisfy China IV emissions regulations, a unique design concept was proposed with injector closely coupled with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system outer body. The benefit of this design is significant in cost reduction and installation convenience. One paper was published to describe the vertical inlet layout [1]; this work is the second part describing applications of this concept to horizontal inlet configurations. For horizontal inlet pipe, two mixing pipe designs were proposed to avoid urea deposit and meet EU IV emission regulations. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technique was used to evaluate two design concepts; experiments were performed to validate both designs. CFD computations and experiments give the same direction on ranking of the two decomposition tubes. With the straight decomposition pipe design and unique perforated baffle design, no urea deposits were found; in addition, the emission level satisfied EU IV regulations.

Cost reduction in the automotive industry becomes a widely-adopted operational strategy not only for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) that take cost leader generic corporation strategy, but also for many OEMs that take differentiation generic corporation strategy. Since differentiation generic strategy requires an organization to provide a product or service above the industry average level, a premium is typically included in the tag price for those products or services. Cost reduction measures could increase risks for the organizations that pursue differentiation strategy. Although manufacturers in the automotive industry dramatically improved production efficiency in past ten years, they are still facing the pressure of cost control. The big challenge in cost control for automakers and suppliers is increasing prices of raw materials, energy and labor costs. These costs create constraints for the traditional economic expansion model.

Abstract Automotive climate control systems are evolving at a rapid pace to meet the overall vehicle requirements and the user expectations for comfort and convenience. This poses a challenge in the product development life cycle of multi-platform vehicle systems with respect to development time and optimal performance in the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. This paper proposes rapid HVAC plant model design and development using simplified one-dimensional (1D) simulation models for fast simulations. The specific accuracy limitations of such a simplified model are overcome using limited three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (3D CFD) modelling. User-level control strategy is developed in an integrated simulation environment that includes a reference 1D model and a control algorithm simulator. The simulation data is used to study and analyse the temperature and airflow distribution in the system.

The Braking System is the most crucial part of the racing vehicle. There is no doubt, that if only one minority failure in the braking system took place, this would be more than enough reason to cause the racing team disqualification from the competition. Time is the main and the most important criteria for any racing competition; on the other hand the formula student “FS UK SAE” competition care the most about developing the automotive engineering sense in the students by putting them under strict rules normally taken from the original version “formula 1” to encourage their creativity to reach the optimum performance under these strict rules. One of the most important rules is “No Braking by wire”, and the obvious consequences are more stopping distance and time. Braking distance is a critical facture in achieving racing success in a competitive domain.

Data is information (e.g., concepts, thoughts, and opinions) that have been recorded in a form that is convenient to move or process. Data may represent tables of values of various types (numbers, characters, and so on). Data can also take more complex forms such as engineering drawings and other documents, software, pictures, maps, sound, and animation.

Data management, from the perspective of this standard, consists of the disciplined processes and systems that plan for, acquire, and provide stewardship for product and product-related business data, consistent with requirements, throughout the product and data life cycles. Thus, this standard primarily addresses product data and the business data required for collaboration from the team level or extended through the trading partner level during product acquisition and sustainment. It is recognized, however, that the principles described in this standard also have broader application to business data and operational data generally.
