Automotive projects continue to grow in complexity. Studies provide a glimpse into the attributes of product development projects that have a high likelihood of failure. Knowing these attributes, the approach to the project can be structured to reduce the risks. For example, the scope of the project may already place the project at risk. Understanding the risks associated with the scope enables you to either reconsider the scope or work out strategies that will eliminate or at least mitigate the risks. In addition, your approach or strategy selected to meet the project demands will have significant impact on the results.

Connected vehicles are increasingly seen as a target for cybersecurity attacks. A key differentiator for the automotive industry is the use of cyber-physical systems, where a successful cybersecurity attack can affect physical entities. Often involving embedded electronics and real time control, these systems require different solutions in addition to established IT security principles and reactive responses to threats. Cybersecurity needs to be designed and built into cyber-physical systems throughout the development lifecycle to provide defense in depth.

This paper presents and demonstrates a paradigm to implement automotive systems based on their specifications in a manner that is platform independent. The advantage is to have the same software used in simulation as on different types of micro-controller in a vehicle as well as to ease the integration of different systems. The paradigm is to model the system's components as reactive objects and to use the Timber kernel to schedule their (re)actions. The demonstration is done by developing an anti-lock braking system within the simulation software CarSim and Simulink, which is then evaluated on a braking maneuver over a surface with different coefficient of adhesion from side to side (split mu).

The Controls and Software Engineering Team at BorgWarner Drivetrain Systems has successfully employed model-based software development for the past several years. Their drivetrain system control software, developed using MATLAB/Simulink/Stateflow, and autocoded using TargetLink, is on the road in many passenger vehicle applications. Using these tools, BorgWarner has realized the widely recognized benefits of model-based design; such as increased speed to market, improved quality, and reduced complexity. Validating algorithms early through simulation and rapid prototyping, then translating them to production software through automatic code generation has proven very successful for BorgWarner. When starting with model-based design, the BorgWarner team focused on developing the core application control algorithms in the modeling environment. Lower-level software such as I/O drivers, the task scheduler, and communication logic was still hand-coded.

Custom functions are widely used in real-time embedded automotive applications to conserve scarce processor resources. Typical examples include mathematical functions, filtering routines and lookup tables. The custom routines are very efficient and have been in production for many years [ 1 ]. These hand-crafted functions can be reused in new control algorithm designs being developed using Model Based Design (MBD) tools. The next generation of vehicle control software may contain a mix of both automatically generated software and manually developed code. At Ford Motor Company, the code is automatically generated from control algorithm models that are developed using The MathWorks tool chain. Depending on the project-specific needs, the control algorithm models are automatically translated to efficient C code using either The Math Works Real-Time Workshop Embedded Coder (RTW-EC) or dSPACE TargetLink production code generators.

This paper presents the efforts done by Volvo 3P, through a partnership with ThermoAnalytics Inc, to develop transient thermal simulation methodologies of the under hood of a truck. The verification process for the hot spots analysis currently in use at Volvo 3P is described and the key transient situations for the hot spots analysis are identified: hot shutdown, DPF regeneration and long drive cycle, are currently only covered by physical testing late in the project, contrary to steady-state operating conditions that are already managed through simulations in the early stage of the development phase. The goal of this work is to develop simulation methodologies for these transient situations which are likely to increase the efficiency of the verification process. The key issues to be satisfied are to minimize the model development and the simulation times while achieving an acceptable accuracy level.

Mechatronics development continues to be a challenge for automotive OEM's and suppliers. Multi-disciplinary collaboration and development is critical, especially as architectures and solutions evolve in the automotive industry to satisfy changing needs of the customer and environment. New approaches to mobility, sustainment, and infotainment create the need for new combinations of electrical, software, mechanical, and chemical know-how. Whereas most frameworks for requirements-driven model-based design support a single discipline, what is really needed is a framework for requirements-driven model- based design that can capture the multi-disciplinary architecture of the vehicle or system. This would and allow development organizations to then further decompose the objects in support of further refinement and validation.

Dynamic system simulation has gained an important role in automotive engineering since powertrains and power management systems are getting more and more complex. The goal is to establish dynamic system simulation as an integral part of the vehicle development process for the purpose of saving development time, improving subsystem and component specifications, and reducing of development cost. A crucial prerequisite for this approach is that the model quality has been identified for the utilized vehicle simulation models. It determines the applicability of the simulation results since the reliability of simulation results cannot be judged without an identified model quality. The identification of model qualities requires an established and standardized verification and validation process adapted to dynamic vehicle simulation, which is introduced in this paper.

Due to the increasing complexity of modern systems, demands for a reduced time to market, lower costs and more rapid product evolution use is made of simulation methods in engineering development. An executable dynamic simulation model may be used to define a complex system from which engineers can observe system behavior and make decisions based on better quality information thus coordinating development efforts more effectively. This work presents two models, both real time capable; a test cell model and a vehicle and driver model with a well defined architecture that helps facilitate Simulation Based Development (SBD) efforts relating to powertrain and drivetrain development. The models are created with a well defined architecture (Flexible Architecture for Simulation Based Development) and run (simulated) through the NEDC and US06 drive cycles.

Virtual Simulations tools are extensively utilized by many industries today in product development processes. In auto industry, however, this utilization has not reached its full potential. So far virtual simulations have been playing a supporting role in traditional product development processes founded on physical builds. To reach the full potential of virtual simulation, in reducing the product development time and costs, a paradigm shift in the product development processes and the role of both physical and virtual simulations is need. For an integrated realization process, innovation, analysis, integration, and continuous correlations are necessary design practices for achieving the desired product attributes. This paper, discusses the expansion of the virtual simulation role in an integrated product realization process to reshape the traditional product development process.

The role of NVH test development has changed from addressing a system-level NV concern late in the design cycle (firefighting) to having well established NV optimized test procedures in place. One way this is achieved is by leveraging the information gained during troubleshooting of current product to improve the future product development process for noise and vibration. Today, most NV groups/laboratories use optimized test procedures for creating accurate, consistent, and efficient test results. This still requires expertise to post-process data, compute targets and interpret results to guide product development. This step is often overlooked and, in recent years, due to the lack of NV expertise of “younger” labs (typically in non-automotive industries) or of more established labs affected by the economic downturn (early retirements, lay-offs, especially in the automotive industry) there has been a growing need for automated post-processing “intelligent” procedures.

For purposes of reducing development time, cost and risk, the majority of new vehicles are derived strongly or at least generally from a surrogate vehicle, often of the same general size or body style. Previous test data and lessons learned can be applied as a starting point for design of the new vehicle, especially at early phases of the design before definite design decisions have been finalized and before prototype of production test hardware is available. This is true as well of vehicle NVH development where most new vehicles being developed are variants of existing vehicles for which the main noise transfer paths from sources of interest are already understood via test results and existing targets. The NVH targets for new vehicles are defined via benchmarking, market considerations, and other higher-level decisions. The objective is then to bridge the gap between test data from surrogate vehicles to direct support of the NVH development of new vehicle programs.

A project is described where spherical beam-forming was used to perform real time evaluation and development of an automotive dash silencer assembly. By eliminating the iterative laboratory sound transmission loss testing, significant advantages were achieved in part development. These advantages include a reduction in development cost and time, reduced part cost, and lower part mass. Reducing the time to develop lighter and less expensive sound package parts was the most obvious benefit of the project, but the process also: 1) eliminated the time and cost to procure competitive parts; 2) allowed the evaluation of the parts in-vehicle rather than on a laboratory buck; and 3) reduced the time required with the development vehicle.

The definition of vehicle and powertrain level targets is one of the first tasks toward establishing where a vehicle will reside with respect to the current or future state of industry. Though development of sound quality metrics is ongoing to better correlate objective data with subjective assessments, target setting at the vehicle level is relatively straightforward. However, realization of these targets depends on effective cascading to system and component levels. Often, component level targets are derived based on experience from earlier development programs, or based on selected characteristics observed during component level benchmarking. An approach is presented here to complement current strategies for component level target definition. This approach involves a systematic concept for definition of component NVH targets based on desired vehicle level performance and a consequent target break down.

The sound sources of modern road vehicle can be classified into three components, driving sound (sound generated through normal driving patterns and events), operating sound (sound generated through actuated components not related to driving), and generated synthetic sound (electronic warning / interactive feedback). The characteristic features of these sounds are dependent upon customer expectation and usage requirements. Additional development complexities are introduced due to each market's cultural and regional differences. These differences in preference must be considered for the establishment of the target sound quality in the early vehicle development process. In this paper, a sound quality goal setting procedure based on user preference is introduced. The sound targets are created as a result of the user preference investigation and validated by intercultural comparison.

With today's growing focus on noise control issues and the emergence of sound quality as an important aspect of product design, usage of sound package materials has been playing a vital role in the design, manufacturing and validation of vehicles including automobiles, multipurpose vehicles, and commercial vehicles. This paper discusses about the NVH development process in the Indian automotive market. This involves typical NVH solutions, Government norms, benchmarking, target setting, target cascading, simulation methods, test standards and methods, and design optimization. It also explores the relevance and timing of material, component, and full system level of testing and analyses. The manufacturing process involves prototyping, trials, and validation. The paper discusses that the profitability and the performance of the NVH product can be optimized by managing the above-mentioned NVH activities. The future trends in the NVH markets are also discussed.

Lean applications in product development usually start with manufacturing due to the relative experience of measuring improvements and identifying wastes in physical settings. The full potential of lean implementation in any product development, however, can only be realized when applied throughout the process, starting with early process. Considering that the first and most essential principle in lean implementation is the characterization of value from the customer's perspective, it is imperative that the proper definition of value is realized at the beginning of the process. In addition, streaming and flowing of this customer's specified value should be realized throughout the process from start to finish. This paper discusses the application of lean principles to integrated design and manufacturing phases of the Product Development Process.

Facing a competitive and globalized market and with increasingly demanding customers, companies must constantly seek the development of practices in the development of new products. One of the current practices is the adoption of modularity. In that sense, the objective of this paper is to conduct an analysis of this practice in a Brazilian company, which manufactures agricultural machinery. The applicability of modular design in current products is focused. Therefore, a case study approach has been chosen. First, a review of the scientific literature was conducted, followed by field research, for collecting data based on interviews with product engineers and technical documentation. The case study shows the applicability of the modular design concept in a combine header, by increasing the number of repeated components. The modular header approach facilitates the implementation of engineering changes and allows greater standardization of components.

In automotive design and development, there are different stages for product design. In this fast changing scenario product design, digital verification of design (CAE), physical validation of the product and launching of the same in short time is important in product development life cycle of any new generation vehicle. This paper proposes a new approach towards development of a green-field platform for commercial vehicles by improving reliability of CAE and thereby reducing the need for prototype testing and hence shortening development cycle and costs - we call it “Hybrid Mule”. This Hybrid Mule has complete design intent under-body and engine-house while upper-body is made of simple representative tubular space frame. FRP skin panels are attached to this space frame to create a safe environment for test-driver. FRP skin also provides early feel of styling in running condition and evaluates basic ergonomics and visibility.

As part of its technology portfolio, Intelligent Energy has developed a proprietary fuel cell stack, cooled via evaporation rather than by use of separate cooling channels. This paper documents the development status of the Intelligent Energy Evaporatively Cooled (EC) Hydrogen Fuel Cell. As a case study, the application as a range extender in a conventional London Taxi black cab is discussed. The fuel cell black cab has undergone considerable development since its first exposure to the public in 2010 and is now available for public use, via a fleet of five vehicles in London. The paper documents a number of those improvements, the development process and particular experience during the road trials to date. To complement the hardware development and enable rapid development, a fuel cell system and vehicle model has been developed. Development of this tool along with correlation to the actual vehicle hardware is described.
