DCNS Group is positioned as prime contractor and integrator for whole warships in naval defense sector. It designs, manufactures and provides through life support for the most innovative surface naval systems and submarines on the market along with the associated critical systems. DCNS Group is also positioned as a major actor in marine renewable energies and continues its deployment on the civil nuclear energy and marine energy and infrastructure service markets. The DCNS Group is testing and implementing the tools of Virtual Reality in these processes for more than 15 years. Initially, Virtual Reality was used to support the design offices in their design of military vessels. Sales teams used it to live to Customers the experience of their ship before it was built. With the continuous development of hardware and software solutions, new uses are now possible. DCNS takes advantage of these new opportunities to further improve its processes and productivity.

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.

In response to the global automotive market changes, the US Department of Energy (DOE) co-funded Magna International and Ford Motor Company to engineer, prototype and test a new lightweight aluminum-intensive passenger vehicle, facilitating extensive use of advanced lightweight and high-strength materials. The Multi Material Lightweight Vehicle (MMLV) Mach I design achieved an overall 364 kg (23%) full vehicle mass reduction, enabling engine downsizing providing 16% reduction in Global Warming Potential and a 16% reduction in Primary Energy. This presentation communicates the results of a comparative life cycle assessment (LCA) study of the MMLV auto in accordance with International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards. Content includes material selection/distribution, manufacturing process selection enabling of mass-induced fuel savings due to the lightweight auto parts and the down-sized powertrain.

Training / Education Classroom Seminars
The reconstruction and analysis of motorcycle crashes requires a specialized set of skills and knowledge beyond those required for typical four wheel vehicles. This seminar takes participants beyond the basics of crash reconstruction to physical models and analysis techniques that are unique to the reconstruction of motorcycle crashes, providing learners with a comprehensive summary of applicable reconstruction techniques.

SUBARU has developed a driving support system called EyeSight®, that provides functionality that help reduce traffic accidents and driving workload, including Pre-collision Braking and Throttle Management, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Departure Warning. Pre-collision Braking functions when there is a risk of a rear-end collision with an obstacle in front, the system helps to minimize or prevent a collision by warning the driver. If the driver still does not take evasive action to avoid collision, brakes can be automatically applied just before the collision in order to reduce damage impact, or if possible, prevent the collision. Adaptive Cruise Control functions as the vehicle in front in the same traffic lane is detected by stereo cameras, and own vehicle tracks the vehicle in front while automatically maintaining a following distance that corresponds to the speed of the vehicle in front.

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.
