High Efficiency Combustion Systems With the increased demands for fuel efficiency and fuel economy, the internal combustion engine (ICE) continues to be examined for design enhancements to improve these measures. Overall, the program will examine several technological advances required to maximize efficiency, including: o Advanced, low-temperature combustion techniques o Improved understanding and modeling of heat loss mechanisms o Electrification and intelligent control of accessory loads o Possible redesign of mechanical systems (e.g., variable stroke for fully expanded cycles) o High-efficiency turbo-machinery to extract exhaust energy and provide boost Emissions Reduction With a greater than 10 percent growth expected in the domestic passenger vehicle market, China now has the world’s largest auto market; and emissions from transportation are growing rapidly as well.

The ability to quickly and accurately model vapour cycle systems is of increasing interest to a diverse range of industrial applications where energy is lost in the form of ‘waste heat’ from a combustion process. This is especially the case for the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC), which has long been associated with Combined Heat & Power (CHP) plants and small-scale power generation due to its ability to recover heat from relatively low grade engery sources such as biomass, geothermal and solar. However, vehicle manufacturers are also realising the opportunity of recovering some of the 60-70% of fuel energy that is normally lost to the surroundings. Indeed ORC systems are particularly well suited to recovering heat from the vehicle’s exhaust, or liquid cooling system. The recovered energy is used to heat the working fluid to a superheated vapour which is then expanded using either a turbine or a postive displacement machine to extract useful work.

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.
