This session will cover a variety of topics related to vehicle crashworthiness in frontal side, rear and rollover crashes. Specific topics may include dynamic rollover testing, the pole side impact GTR, and NHTSA and IIHS oblique and small overlap crash testing. The safety implications for new light weight vehicle designsmay also be covered in this session. Presentations may include those on the crashworthiness of special use vehicles such as “super-mini” vehicles tested by EuroNCAP.

This session covers test methods and metrics for rating the performance of crash avoidance technologies. Methodologies used or proposed by NCAP (U.S., Europe, and/or Japan), IIHS, Thatcham, and other standardized testing programs will be presented. Examples of crash avoidance technologies include lane departure warning, lane keep assist, crash imminent braking (CIB), dynamic brake assist, forward crash warning, adaptive lighting, and supporting research related to the potential benefits of these safety systems.

Future vehicles will become even more complex as the demand for fuel efficient, electric, hybrid and self-driving vehicles lead to new technologies, materials and chemicals in vehicle manufacturing. Automobiles are ‘complex durable goods’ using thousands of chemicals and substances. Demands to ensure recycling of vehicle components leading to full vehicle recycling are increasing. This session will examine the future of recycling. In particular, it will focus on opportunities to explore technologies unique to the automotive industry related to overall recycling, emission benefits from manufacturing, disposal, repurposing, etc.

As both vehicles and vehicle systems become more sophisticated, today’s cars and light trucks are seeing greater use of technologies that yield emissions benefits not captured on a laboratory test cycle. Agency support for select off-cycle technologies has prompted innovative ideas for reducing CO2 emissions, boosting fuel economy and curbing greenhouse gas emissions that can save consumers money and provide auto companies with additional flexibility in how to comply with the regulations. Yet by the very nature of these technologies, comprehensive validation of such systems can prove challenging. This session explores the state of knowledge and research gaps needed to quantify and accurately account efficiency improvements, the near- and long-term benefits, and how these credits can incentivize technology deployment in the future.

Future vehicles will incorporate new technologies, new materials, chemicals and substances to meet aggressive emissions standards, self-driving vehicle safety requirements, and consumer demands. At the same time, federal & state regulators, plaintiffs’ attorneys, and consumers are adding more legal and regulatory activities for automobile manufacturers. This session will examine how the federal government is expanding its role in regulating the materials used in future vehicles (e.g., TSCA and CICA), how states are expanding their roles in regulating the vehicles and auto parts sold in their states, and how others are using this expanding regulatory sphere to address emerging issues of public health, safety and environmental protection.

Profound changes are underway under the hoods of our “conventional” passenger cars and light trucks, as a host of innovative new technologies aim to substantially boost fuel economy and reduce vehicle greenhouse gas emissions. As we move toward the “midterm evaluation” of model year 2022-2025 standards, technology development and consumer response to these technologies is being closely watched. This session examines the state of these two issues and what it means for a future transition from near-term to long-term environmental technologies. Government and industry experts will weigh in on the opportunities and challenges facing the light duty sector, ongoing research and research gaps with an eye towards informing the forthcoming midterm evaluation, and consumers’ takes on the technologies that lie at the heart of the evolving fleet transformation.

Today's transportation industries are facing multi-disciplinary challenges. The product design and development process challenges often contradict each other, for example cost, weight, quality and performance. A central challenge is the need for cost and mass reduction to compete in the global market, while continuing to meet all new and existing requirements for quality and performance. Accelerated Concept to Product (ACP) Process is a performance-driven, holistic, product design development method intended to create a balance between structure and strength, synchronizing the individual facets of the product development process.

In today's economic environment, patents have become an increasingly important asset for both individuals and corporations. More and more, individuals and corporations, including those in the automotive and aerospace industries, are recognizing that revenue can be generated from their patent rights, whether those rights consist of a single patent, a family of patents or an entire portfolio. Indeed, some companies do not make or sell products; their entire revenue is derived from the licensing of their patents. Suffice it to say, licensing revenue has become a significant source of value in the global intellectual property economy.

Life-cycle assessments (LCAs) conducted, to date, of the end-of-life phase of vehicles rely significantly on assumed values and extrapolations within models. The end phase of vehicles, however, has become all the more important as a consequence of increasing regulatory requirements on materials recovery, tightening disposal restrictions, and the rapid introduction of new materials and electronics, all potentially impacting a vehicle’s efficacy for achieving greater levels of sustainability. This article presents and discusses selected research results of a comprehensive gate-to-gate life-cycle-inventory (LCI) of end-of-life vehicle (ELV) dismantling and shredding processes, constructed through a comprehensive and detailed case study, and argues that managing and implementing creative dismantling practices can improve significantly the recovery of both reusable and recyclable materials from end-of-life vehicles. Although the amount of parts and materials recovered and directed for reuse, remanufacturing or recycling may be as much as 11.6% by weight of the ELVs entering a dismantling process [1], greater rates of reuse and/or recycling may be achieved by the strategic management of the ELVs entering the dismantling process according to age.

Automotive crash reconstruction is a process carried out with the specific purpose of estimating in both a qualitative and quantitative manner how a crash occurred. Reconstructions are based on data collected during the crash and physical evidence gathered during a crash investigation. To some extent, testimonial evidence is also used. Whether a crash is between two vehicles, a vehicle and pedestrian or a vehicle and a barrier, specific crash segments, classified as pre-impact, impact and post-impact motion often are reconstructed separately. Each of the segments is analyzed using established engineering, scientific and mathematical principles and based on the physical evidence.

There is a potential for metal fatigue in any situation where a component is subjected to cyclic loads. Fatigue failures of various types are a key concern in increasing the reliability of products. Problems involving fatigue have become more severe with the demand for lighter weight structures and components. The effective use of fatigue analysis and predictive tools is critical for reducing the development time of new products. Two methods of metal fatigue analysis will be covered. The first is the stress-life approach. This method is used for high cycle or very long life fatigue problems where loads have fairly constant amplitude.

Project Management and Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) are two critical techniques used in product development in the mobility industry today. This seminar will bring these techniques together in an easy to understand format that goes beyond the typical concept of constructing timelines and project planning, by exploring not only the AIAG APQP process, but also specific aspects of PM processes. Students will gain a solid foundation in the essential principles of Project Management and APQP. Students will immediately apply learned skills by taking a sample project through all phases of the Project Plan using actual industry documents.
