Photogrammetry and Analysis of Digital Media

2019-06-26
Photographs and video recordings of vehicle crashes and accident sites are more prevalent than ever, with dash mounted cameras, surveillance footage, and personal cell phones now ubiquitous. The information contained in these pictures and video provide critical information to understanding how crashes occurred, and in analyzing physical evidence. This course teaches the theory and techniques for getting the most out of digital media, including correctly processing raw video and photographs, correcting for lens distortion, and using photogrammetric techniques to convert the information in digital media to usable scaled three-dimensional data.

LIDAR and Infrared Cameras for ADAS and Autonomous Sensing

2019-04-10
This two-day seminar examines ADAS and autonomous vehicle technologies that have disrupted the traditional automotive industry with their challenges and potential to increase safety while attempting to optimize the cost of car ownership. LIDAR and Infrared camera sensing are seeing a rapid growth and adoption in the industry. However, the sensor requirements and system architecture options continue to evolve almost every six months. This course will provide the foundation to build on for these two technologies in automotive applications. It will include a demonstration model for LIDAR and Infrared camera.

Standard Rainflow File Format

2002-04-30
HISTORICAL
J2623_200204
This SAE Standard provides a definition of a rainflow file format. This type of simple text file would contain all relevant information about the rainflow cycle content of a time history. Included information are Comments, Signal Range, Signal Mean, Number of Cycles, Signal Maximum, Signal Minimum. Rainflow cycle counting has become the most accepted procedure for identifying material fatigue relevant cycles in complex variable amplitude load time histories. The cycle counting methods account for the effects of material plasticity and material memory of prior deformation, and the resulting compressed history information is used by durability analysts to estimate the effects of a given service or test history.

The First Century of the Detroit Auto Show

2000-01-15
This book looks at the first century of the Detroit Auto Show, the largest auto show in the world for many years. From the first show at the Detroit Light Guard Armory in 1899 to the January 1999 show at Cobo Hall, this fascinating book details the show's evolution over 100 years, and how it became the industry's most prominent event. The First Century of the Detroit Auto Show introduces pioneers such as William Metzger, who was instrumental in organizing the first show and played a prominent role in many shows of the early 1900s. Each year's show is covered in a chapter which includes information on the major players of the show, products featured, size, exhibitors, decor, opening ceremonies, admission fares, and entertainment. The book features over 100 historical and nostalgic photos to bring the reader in touch with the culture of the automotive industry and society at the time.

Optical Imaging Evaluation of Impact Damage Resistance Testing on Exterior Finishes

2011-05-26
CURRENT
J2661_201105
This SAE Recommended Practice covers a procedure for evaluating plastic and multiple-layer coatings exposed to gravelometer testing (as defined in SAE J400) with an optical imaging and analysis system. The intent of the procedure is to detect, count and characterize instances of damage in the coated surface that fracture the top coat layer or penetrate through multiple layers of the coating system. It may be possible to extend this methodology of coating damage evaluation to specimens that have undergone test procedures or exposures that produce similar, discrete damage sites in the coating system. If so applied, evaluation results must be interpreted with respect to the limitations and intent implied by the original evaluation procedure and its associated rating system, if applicable.
