Diagnostic Communication with Road-Vehicles and Non-Road Mobile Machinery

Diagnostic Communication with Road-Vehicles and Non-Road Mobile Machinery examines the communication between a diagnostic tester and E/E systems of road-vehicles and non-road mobile machinery such as agricultural machines and construction equipment. The title also contains the description of E/E systems (control units and in-vehicle networks), the communication protocols (e.g. OBD, J1939 and UDS on CAN / IP), and a glimpse into the near future covering remote, cloud-based diagnostics and cybersecurity threats.

Snowmobile Brake Control Systems

This SAE Recommended Practice is intended to provide the minimum acceptable criteria for snowmobile hand brake control systems. This recommendation is not intended to cover competition vehicles, nor is it intended to limit development of new and/or improved technology in controls. Although these recommendations are primarily addressed to hand control systems using an outer flexible conduit with a multiple strand inner cable or hydraulic type brake control system, the basic requirements of freedom of movement, strength, material, etc., will apply to any system.

Off-Road Rim Maintenance Procedures and Service Precautions, Diameter Code 20 and Larger

This SAE Recommended Practice covers the important fundamental maintenance and service precautions for all off-road single-piece and multi-piece rims. Detailed information on specific procedures concerning mounting, demounting, maintenance, and service of a particular type, style, or design of off-road rim assembly can be obtained by consulting rim or tire manufacturers or distributors. These procedures and service precautions should be considered in preparation of the machine service manual, the operator's manual, and workplace procedures.

Telescopic Boom Length Indicating System

This SAE Recommended Practice applies to mobile cranes when used in lifting crane service which are equipped with boom length indicating devices.

Recommendations for Children's Snowmobile


This SAE Recommended Practice establishes the test procedures, performance requirements, and criteria necessary to evaluate minimum safety and reliability requirements of a children's snowmobile as identified in 1.2.

Model-Based Approaches in Developing an Advanced Aftertreatment System: An Overview

Cummins has recently launched next-generation aftertreatment technology, the Single ModuleTM aftertreatment system, for medium-duty and heavy-duty engines used in on-highway and off-highway applications. Besides meeting EPA 2010+ and Euro VI regulations, the Single ModuleTM aftertreatment system offers 60% volume and 40% weight reductions compared to current aftertreatment systems. In this work, we present model-based approaches that were systematically adopted in the design and development of the Cummins Single ModuleTM aftertreatment system. Particularly, a variety of analytical and experimental component-level and system-level validation tools have been used to optimize DOC, DPF, SCR/ASC, as well as the DEF decomposition device.

Safety and Comfort for All: An affordable Hill-Hold and Automated Parking Brake System

With an ever-increasing number of vehicles on Indian roads, the safety and ease of driving has become a very important criterion for the customers. In passenger and commercial vehicles, while launching a vehicle on gradient or stop and go traffic in hilly region, the vehicle tends to roll back/forward in the opposite direction of the intended movement. This undesirable movement is also a safety issue, as this may cause collision with the vehicle on the rear or in front. It requires a skilled driver to coordinate between the clutch pedal, brake (also handbrake in some situations) and accelerator pedal to prevent the vehicle from rolling back while handling such situations. It also leads to clutch disc wear and heating as the driver may tend to slip the clutch to prevent the vehicle from rolling back. Hill hold is a driver assist feature which prevents the vehicle roll back/roll forward during launch operation on uphill/downhill conditions.

Stabilizer Foot Optimization for Backhoe Loader

Continuous improvement and weight reduction are key contributors to success of most of the Product Engineering Organizations. This helps to keep the product competitive in market from cost, weight and performance stand point. It needs to be ensured to have enough strength in the structures to support the external loads along with quality requirements. This can be ensured by removing material from redundant zones and provide it at necessary areas carrying loads. In current paper, author covers information about utilization of topology optimization tool to achieve the weight reduction and in turn cost reduction to contribute in the organizations Value Improvement efforts. Stabilizer foot optimization is an opportunity explored in construction vehicle (Backhoe). Current stabilizer foot is a common design across multiple models that range in performance and weight capability.

Additive manufacturing is transforming mobility engineering, driving the factory of the future

Two new installments in the burgeoning SAE International Podcast Series cast a spotlight on additive manufacturing, which is fueling innovation, greater efficiencies, and the future of mobility engineering. Additive manufacturing continues to advance and transform mobility engineering, as aerospace and automotive firms increasingly adopt and invest in 3D printing technologies, which are becoming more capable and cost-effective.

Free Motion Headform Impact Tests of Heavy Truck Cab Interiors

This SAE Recommended Practice describes the test procedures for conducting free motion headform testing of heavy truck cab interior surfaces and components. A description of the test set-up, instrumentation, impact configuration, target locations, and data reduction is included.

Data Acquisition from Light-Duty Vehicles Using OBD and CAN

Modern vehicles have multiple electronic control units (ECU) to control various subsystems such as the engine, brakes, steering, air conditioning, and infotainment. These ECUs are networked together to share information directly with each other. This in-vehicle network provides a data opportunity for improved maintenance, fleet management, warranty and legal issues, reliability, and accident reconstruction. Data Acquisition from Light-Duty Vehicles Using OBD and CAN is a guide for the reader on how to acquire and correctly interpret data from the in-vehicle network of light-duty (LD) vehicles. The reader will learn how to determine what data is available on the vehicle's network, acquire messages and convert them to scaled engineering parameters, apply more than 25 applicable standards, and understand 15 important test modes.
