Consumer interest in Crash Avoidance and Advanced Driver Assist Safety Systems continues to grow, and vehicle manufactures must find ways to optimize sensor complexities and maximize capabilities of the sensors they choose to use. The forward-looking camera continues to offer increasing capability, and value, to offer these features on large numbers of vehicles. While much talk and focus today is around future trends and automated driving, there are still many opportunities to bring crash avoidance technologies into mainstream vehicles using vision technology. This presentation will provide an overview on GMs focus of the Front Camera and the capabilities that it can provide to help avoid crashes, meet Global NCAP requirements, provide customer convenience, and also support future automation features

Fatality rates in traffic crashes have been decreasing for decades, and much of the credit goes to improvements in occupant protection in the event of a crash. However, new active safety technologies designed to avoid certain crashes altogether offer the promise of faster declines in fatality and crash rates going forward. For example, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) has already dramatically cut the rate of rollovers in newer vehicles. Since active safety systems generally target particular crash scenarios, the kinds of crashes that make up the population will change in the future. This presentation covers the current makeup of the crash scenarios and presents results on how we might expect the future of crashes to look as active safety systems enter the fleet. The crashes that remain should become the target of future advances in crash avoidance technology.

The internal combustion engine has great potential for high fuel efficiency. The ideal otto and diesel cycles can easily achieve more than 70% thermodynamic efficiency. The problems come when those cycles should be implemented in a real engine. Extreme peak pressure during the cycle will call for a very robust engine structure that in turn will increase friction and hence reduce mechanical efficiency. A very high compression ratio also increase the surface to volume ratio and promote heat losses, taking away much of the benefits from the theoretical cycle. The presentation will start with a standard SI engine and it’s efficiency as a function of load. Then a high compression ratio SI with be introduced and compared with the same engine operated in HCCI mode. The four efficiencies of SI as well as HCCI will be discussed and variations like HCCI with negative valve overlap and higher mean piston speed will be shown. A next step is the results with Partially Premixed Combustion.

This presentation describes deer radar & lidar scanning data collection and analysis and naturalistic driving data collection and analysis for deer vehicle encounters. Deer vehicle crashes are a significant problem in the U.S. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are about 1 million deer vehicle crashes each year that result in 200 fatalities, cause more than 10,000 injuries, and result in $1 billion in vehicle damage. These radar/lidar and naturalistic driving data collected in this project could be used for development for standardized test surrogate and testing procedure for deer vehicle crashes in the U.S. Measurement of many deer of different shape, size, and color; male, female and fawn with a 905nm Lidar and 77GHz mm wave radar in spring and fall was done in daylight and dark conditions in a deer farm in Southeast Michigan.

From their origins in meeting emissions and fuel economy standards, embedded control systems are now proliferating across other areas such as improved safety, comfort and convenience, connectivity, and much more. To address the consequent increase in system and software complexity, automotive industry is using Model-Based Design to design, analyze and implement the software in product development. Now, we are ushering in a new era of transformation where automotive and consumer technologies are merging and the availability of low-cost sensing, computing, and control technologies is allowing the automotive industry to create new products and lines of business. This presentation will start off with current trends in Model-Based Design application for product development, then discuss how sensing, computing, and control are impacting the automotive industry, and how model-based methods can enable you to realize the new opportunities generated by this transformation.

Demand for fuel efficiency and fuel economy constantly increases world-wide. Internal combustion engines and fuels represent an integrated system, continuously examined for enhancements to improve these measures. Fuel ethers are blending components used precisely to enhance performance and provide cleaner, more sustainable gasoline. As clean replacements for toxic compounds, and enablers of improved air quality through a reduction of vehicle emissions of exhaust pollutants like VOCs and PM, fuel ethers enable a global path towards more sustainable, clean, efficient, and affordable mobility. . Thanks to their naturally high octane numbers they also contribute to economies of fuel, enhancing efficient combustion of petrol, while not causing engine damage or corrosion of parts and enabling the transition to higher compression ratio, more efficient engines.
