Electronic Transmission Controls

2000-06-10
The evolution of the automotive transmission has changed rapidly in the last decade, partly due to the advantages of highly sophisticated electronic controls. This evolution has resulted in modern automatic transmissions that offer more control, stability, and convenience to the driver. Electronic Transmission Controls contains 68 technical papers from SAE and other international organizations written since 1995 on this rapidly growing area of automotive electronics. This book breaks down the topic into two sections. The section on Stepped Transmissions covers recent developments in regular and 4-wheel drive transmissions from major auto manufacturers including DaimlerChrysler, General Motors, Toyota, Honda, and Ford. Technology covered in this section includes: smooth shift control; automatic transmission efficiency; mechatronic systems; fuel saving technologies; shift control using information from vehicle navigation systems; and fuzzy logic control.

Autonomous Vehicles and V2V/V2I Communications Set

2013-04-16
This two-volume set consists of two edited books: Autonomous Vehicles for Safer Driving (PT-158), published in April 2013, and V2V/V2I Communications for Improved Road Safety and Efficiency (PT-154), published in August 2012. Both volumes include SAE-published documents that have been carefully selected and arranged by editor Ronald Jurgen to provide the reader with current information on these interrelated topics about the future of driving. The papers in the autonomous vehicles volume bring the reader up to date on successful demonstrations of autonomous vehicles, ongoing projects, and what the future may hold for this technology. It is divided into three sections: overview, major design and test collaborations, and a sampling of autonomous vehicle research projects.

Autonomous Vehicles for Safer Driving

2013-04-16
Self-driving cars are no longer in the realm of science fiction, thanks to the integration of numerous automotive technologies that have matured over many years. Technologies such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and V2V/V2I communications are being merged into one complex system. The papers in this compendium were carefully selected to bring the reader up to date on successful demonstrations of autonomous vehicles, ongoing projects, and what the future may hold for this technology. It is divided into three sections: overview, major design and test collaborations, and a sampling of autonomous vehicle research projects. The comprehensive overview paper covers the current state of autonomous vehicle research and development as well as obstacles to overcome and a possible roadmap for major new technology developments and collaborative relationships.

Electronic Engine Control Technologies, 2nd Edition

2004-03-13
In this second edition of Electronic Engine Control Technologies, the latest advances and technologies of electronic engine control are explored in a collection of 99 technical papers, none of which were included in the book's first edition. Editor Ronald K. Jurgen offers an informative introduction, "Neural Networks on the Rise," clearly explaining the book's overall format and layout. The book then closely examines the many areas surrounding electronic engine control technologies, including: specific engine controls, diagnostics, engine modeling, innovative solid-state hardware and software systems, communication techniques for engine control, neural network applications, and the future of electronic engine controls.
