Editorial Autonomy's data binge is more like a 5-course meal. Big Data, Big Challenges Cloud services and multiple partnerships are issues the mobility industry grapples with as data implications expand outside the vehicle. Reinventing the Automobile's Design The convergence of electric propulsion, Level 5 autonomy, and the advent of car-free urban zones, is driving new approaches to vehicle design and engineering. When Steering Isn't Steering Anymore High-level autonomy requires new thinking for even basic vehicle controls. Steer-by-wire technology eases some of the complexities automated driving presents-and offers desirable new possibilities. Autonomy and Electrification: A Perfect Match? Combining SAE Level 4/5 functionality and EV platforms brings chal-lenges-and opportunities for cost reduction and systems optimization. Who's Ahead in the Automated-Driving Race? The 2018 Navigant Research Leaderboard study brings interesting insights on the industry's progress.
At the Berlin Auto Show in 1938, Adolf Hitler presented the prototype for a small, oddly shaped, inexpensive family car that all good Aryans could enjoy. Decades later, that automobile—the Volkswagen Beetle—was one of the most beloved in the world. Bernhard Rieger examines culture and technology, politics and economics, and industrial design and advertising genius to reveal how a car commissioned by Hitler and designed by Ferdinand Porsche became an exceptional global commodity on a par with Coca-Cola. Beyond its quality and low cost, the Beetle’s success hinged on its uncanny ability to capture the imaginations of people across nations and cultures. In West Germany, it came to stand for the postwar “economic miracle” and helped propel Europe into the age of mass motorization. In the United States, it was embraced in the suburbs, and then prized by the hippie counterculture as an antidote to suburban conformity.
The result of a combined effort between the Society for Machinery Failure Prevention Technology (MFPT) and the International Society of Automation (ISA), which held their conferences together in May, 2013, the proceedings are now are available in print format. Focusing on the theme of Sensors and Systems for Reliability, Safety and Affordability, the Joint Conference MFPT 2013 and ISA’s 59th International Instrumentation Symposium reflected the importance of sensing and condition management systems in lowering sustainment costs. The proceedings contain 33 technical papers chosen out of the 120 presented during the various sessions.
This third edition of Applied Transport Economics has been completely revised and updated to cover the latest developments and thinking in transport economics. Professor Stuart Cole examines the application of economics techniques first to commercial transport operations, and second to public policy issues such as investment, integrated transport and competition, and third to the role of transport in its wider economic context. The style and approach, which proved so popular in the first two editions has been retained. This approach provides a transport economics text book for managers who are not familiar with economics techniques, students preparing for examinations in transport and other areas of business and public policy where an applied approach to economics is required, and economists entering the transport field.
The car - once everybody's dream and a key status symbol in most countries and cultures - has been extensively questioned in the last decades and in the last few years particularly. Urbanization, traffic congestion, pollution problems, heavy reliance on scarce oil supplies, safety issues and ever-growing competition, have all provided significant business challenges for the automotive industry. Many car manufacturers have had to fundamentally rethink their design, brand and marketing strategies to thrive in a savvy, consumer-led culture, and markets that are becoming increasingly restrictive in size and opportunity.
This game-changing book puts you behind the curtain at Toyota, providing new insight into the legendary automaker's management practices and offering practical guidance for leading and developing people in a way that makes the best use of their brainpower. Drawing on six years of research into Toyota's employee-management routines, Toyota Kata examines and elucidates, for the first time, the company's organizational routines—called kata—that power its success with continuous improvement and adaptation. The book also reaches beyond Toyota to explain issues of human behavior in organizations and provide specific answers to questions such as: • How can we make improvement and adaptation part of everyday work throughout the organization? • How can we develop and utilize the capability of everyone in the organization to repeatedly work toward and achieve new levels of performance?
EVERYTHING WORKS WONDERFULLY is a 250-page A4 softback book written to provide a structured source of guidance and reference information on Servitization and the management of physical assets for people at all levels in industry: • Senior executives considering the expansion of their businesses into the provision of Asset Management services for the products they design and manufacture; • Middle management wishing to know what needs to be done to look after the assets they are responsible for and who to approach for help; • ‘Hands-on’ engineers looking for contacts and advice on detailed tools and techniques. • Academics may also find the book useful as a source of contacts and ideas for research.
Thank you for your interest in the Global Mobility Database. This demo provides a representative sample of SAE¿s collection of mobility data. It demonstrates the search engine features and functions and includes a data set of more than 900 document summaries with bibliographic information, including abstracts. This subset contains examples of references for technical papers, standards, journal and magazine articles, specifications, regulations, and research reports, and represents all areas of mobility engineering for land, sea, air, and space. You will be asked to login to the SAE Website before accessing the demo. This will require you to register as a new user if you do not already have an SAE Website account.

The Counterfeit and Substandard Battery Risk Mitigation sub-committee, G21B, is proposed with the goal of addressing the significant risk presented by counterfeit and substandard batteries. A standard similar to the SAE AS6171 Anti-counterfeit standard will provide inspection methods and risk mitigation strategies, to help mitigate the risk for the Aerospace and Defense industries, to the benefit of all.
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines the testing methods for all aerospace optic cables. The application of the test methods are defined in the slant sheets. Technical, dimensional, mechanical and operating performance requirements for the associated aerospace fiber optic cables are detailed in the applicable specification slant sheet. In the event of conflict between this standard and the slant sheet, the slant sheet shall take precedence.
Netlist Assurance Test Methods exist to assess microcircuit designs for maliciously added, removed, or modified functions detrimental to system operation. In the context of the Microcircuit fabrication design process, these methods will be used to analyze a computer aided design (CAD) representation of the microcircuit. The Netlist Assurance Test Methods discover vulnerabilities, undisclosed functions (e.g. "kill switch", paths to leak passwords, or triggers of malicious activity) and changes from the original specifications of the devices. These methods are intended to be used with standard verification methods that the implemented design has remained unchanged through the many transformations in the design flow.
This test method provides the capabilities, limitations, and suggested possible applications of TMA as it pertains to detection of suspect/counterfeit EEE parts. Additionally, this document outlines requirements associated with the application of TMA including: equipment requirements, test sample requirements, methodology, control and calibration, data analysis, reporting, and qualification and certification.
