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.

Brake Master Cylinder Plastic Reservoir Assembly for Road Vehicles

2018-10-28
WIP
J2053
This SAE Recommended Practice specifies the performance test procedures and requirements of a plastic reservoir assembly suitable for use on a hydraulic brake master cylinder (reference SAE J1153). Intended usage is for on-road vehicles using brake fluid conforming to fMVSS-116 (DOT 3), and SAE J1703 specifications. This document includes the cap.cover and diaphragm as integral parts of the reservoir assembly. The fluid level sensor (FLS) is also included as an integral part of the assembly. However, additional FLS standards and/or requirements are applicable and necessary which are not covered in this document. This document is intended to provide a recommended practice and minimum performance requirements of current established designs on those reservoir assemblies generally used by individual manufacturers which have demonstrated satisfactory field performance. This document is applicable to new reservoir assemblies for commercial or aftermarket production.

CURRENT
J2546_200202
The modeling requirements listed in this document provide guidelines for specifying: Analysis requirements Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) simulator Model fidelity System assumptions Model architecture Validation requirements Deliverables for electrical/electronic components and the integral interfacing systems (mechanical, thermal, hydraulic) associated with these components. The simulation models are primarily intended to facilitate functional specification and operational evaluation between component and system manufacturers, and are not intended to otherwise constrain or restrict the use of CAE simulation tools for automotive design, analysis and validation.

Reduced Effort Power Steering and Power Steering Backup Systems

2004-08-12
CURRENT
J2672_200408
This Information Report relates to a special class of automotive adaptive equipment which consists of modifications to the hydraulic control mechanism of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) power steering systems provided as original equipment on personally licensed vehicles. These modifications are generically called "reduced effort power steering". The purpose of the modification is to lower the amount of driver effort required to operate the steering system. Retention of reliability, ease of use for physically disabled drivers and maintainability are of primary concern. Because this is an Information Report, the numerical values for performance measurements presented in this report and in the accompanying Test Procedure, while based upon the best knowledge available at the time, have not been validated by a testing of the Test Procedure.
