On Board Diagnostics have been around for a long time and are well understood and standardized. Huge amounts of diagnostic data have piled up over the years. Many variants and dimensions must be supported. Fortunately, the data is machine readable. This session provides an overview of the evolution of big data techniques to promote prognostic development and shows some case studies for the next generation of prognostics development.
The mobility industry is constantly challenged to provide customers with the ultimate in reliability and durability. As a result, when failures occur during testing or real-world service, it is essential to identify the root cause and take appropriate corrective action in a timely manner. This session will cover failure analysis methodology, fundamentals of failure mechanisms, non-destructive evaluation, fractography, material fatigue testing, fatigue life design for vehicles, material fracture criteria, damage and fracture characterization, fracture prediction in vehicle crash, material fracture behavior in high strain rates, etc., and creative problem-solving case examples of failure analysis and prevention.
In this session, V2X-interactions among vehicles and others, an important part of the smart transportation and infrastructure concept, is discussed. Vehicle to Everything (V2X) refers to the communication between vehicles and other road agents such as pedestrians, aerial vehicles, etc. V2X based models can be utilized to decrease energy consumption and emissions in vehicles, as well as improve safety. This session includes topics such as valet parking of autonomous vehicles, pedestrian to vehicle (P2V) communication, vehicle speed optimization for traffic lights.
The interest in Magnesium alloys in the automotive market for new and existing applications is primarily due to their mass reduction potential.
