Although many have an idea of what the term “driver distraction” means, there is no common definition within the research community. Additionally, there are many studies that have investigated the topic, but with varying and sometimes conflicting results. What should be made of these discrepancies? This four-hour web seminar will provide an overview of driver distraction (predominantly electronic devices): the problem; how to define it; the current state of research and how to critically evaluate that research to make informed decisions; and the effectiveness of state laws and fleet policies to reduce it.

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.

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.

Preventing future problems and troubleshooting existing problems in today's stamping plants requires greater stamping process knowledge. The link between inputs and outputs isn't as clear as many think, increasing the need for detailed understanding of the variables involved. This course discusses the key inputs and outputs associated with sheet metal stamping, including important elements for controlling the process and making it more robust. The course reviews sheet metal characteristics and their application, especially from a formability standpoint, using many automotive-related examples.

Around the world, and more often than not, government bodies require formal certification of products. As product developers expand into new markets, they will be confronted with new standards, regulations, and customer expectations that may require new compliance processes. A properly run compliance program improves your product’s quality and safety, broadens your product’s market, ensures compliance with regulations and laws, and helps provide protection from future product liability issues. This two-day seminar presents a process development methodology that can be used repeatedly as new compliance requirements emerge.

As the number of peripheral components grows to accommodate ever increasing demands for functionality and performance in transmission applications, the integration of different technologies to obtain the best solution in terms of performance to a given application is considered to be the essence of system design. The behaviour of a mechatronic system is determined by the interdependencies of its components. Therefore, the design and development of mechatronic systems in transmission applications require an integral approach to deal with sub-systems and sub-processes of multiple domains, i.e. hydraulic, mechanical, magnetic, and electrical. The integration of mechatronic systems can be performed by components (hardware-integration) and by information processing (software-integration). The information processing consists of low-level and high-level feedback control, supervision and diagnosis, and general process management.

With the increasing popularity of seamless gear changing and smooth driving experience along with the need for high fuel efficiency, transmission system development has rapidly increased in complexity. So too has transmission control software while quality requirements are high and time-to-market is short. As a result, extensive testing and documentation along with quick and efficient development methods are required.

The automotive industry has undergone a race toward transmissions with an increasing number of gear steps in recent years. It has certainly made transmission design more difficult with increased system complexity, the number of the transmission operating modes, and possible switching among those modes. On the other hand, transmission internal inertias and ratio spread have also increased with the number of gear steps. However, there is a question that has been largely overlooked. That is, what are the implications to transmission control and vehicle integration in this race? In this presentation, fundamental dynamic analysis has been performed on selected transmissions with an increasing number of gear steps. The vibration modes, natural frequencies and contributing components have been identified for each of the transmissions.

The low friction rolling bearing is one of the components for efficiency improvement in transmission. Rolling bearing has nonlinear stiffness and friction depends on micro geometry and the external load. Therefore the system analysis of transmission including the components such as shaft and housing is very important for design of rolling bearing. In this report, we introduce the transmission system analysis software and some case studies.

The shift quality of a transmission is one of the major factors influencing ride comfort and drivability of a vehicle. This shift quality is a function of both the transmission hardware and the software in the electronic control unit which includes both algorithms and calibrations. Because of this, the transmissions are tested in unison with the electronic control units on powertrain dynos. This is also an opportunity for the engineers to figure out preliminary calibrations for optimal performance/ride quality. The next step is to install the transmission in a prototype vehicle and have the test drivers get a 'feel' for the upshifts and downshifts under various driving conditions. This process is somewhat subjective and requires extensive testing on prototype vehicles which may not be ready when the transmission is. The approach we are presenting couples a powertrain dyno with a high-fidelity vehicle dynamics model running in real time. This enables the users to: 1.

Fuel economy and CO2 regulations world-wide demand for a strict but clear average fleet fuel reduction target in the coming decade. A massive uptake of light to mild hybridization is therefor required. In this presentation we compare existing and new 12V and 48V solutions on functionality, cost, performance and off course the fuel economy improvements. Special focus is given on new powerful solutions using combinations of 48V battery- and kinetic energy (flywheel) storage. It is shown that such low voltage dual storage solutions compete with high voltage full hybrid performances at a fraction of the cost.

An infinitely variable transmission (IVT) utilizing oscillating torque generated from the centrifugal forces of rotating masses to transmit mechanical power is presented. The objectives of the presentation are to show recent design improvements, explain the mechanics, and show that this IVT is viable for a large array of automotive, commercial, and military vehicle applications. Recent design improvements enable the IVT to scale in size to any vehicle application including earth movers and main battle tanks while maintaining high efficiency. This IVT controls torque amplitude rather than speed ratio as in traditional designs. This unique approach combines the high mechanical efficiency of fixed gear ratio transmission with the high engine efficiency obtained using a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) in a lightweight, rugged, and high-torque package.

Societal and regulatory demands to lower emissions and increase engine-operating efficiencies have forced engine designers to adopt new technologies and control strategies. This has resulted in dramatic evolutions of the technology of internal combustion engines and their support systems in recent years. These operational management strategies have evolved into more robust control systems and sensory packages, which in turn has driven the need for more accurate and specific information being communicated between the various systems found within a modern automobile.
