The Boston-based startup believes the marine domain is even better suited for autonomous systems than aerospace, automotive and other off-highway sectors. The company is currently testing its technology on commercial vessels in Boston Harbor.
Piher Sensors & Controls’ hollow shaft PST-360 contactless Hall-effect magnetic sensor was designed as a reliable solution for maintaining accurate pedal position (brake, accelerator or throttle) in x-by-wire applications, which is particularly important for on-road/car racing and off-road vehicles that demand accuracy even in the face of extremely harsh conditions.
The EC600 X-FLEX high-pressure spiral hose from Eaton is designed for demanding applications that require very high-pressure performance in small areas, including construction, mining and industrial equipment.
Called a “new generation” of NOx reduction technology, ASDS (Ammonia Storage and Delivery System) is designed ultimately to replace conventional tanks containing a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) or AdBlue with lighter, high-efficiency cartridges containing a solid material called AdAmmine.
Driven by rising demand for lighter weight components in automotive, heavy-duty trucks and off-highway vehicles, a new wave of technology and operational initiatives is taking center stage in the iron castings industry, explains Grede's Jay Solomond.
Take-it-to-the-limit testing is typically reserved for vehicle development teams, but Jaguar's route and the sensational topography clearly gave Automotive Engineering good insight into F-Pace's dynamic capabilities and its four-year development.
With the first-generation Honda Ridgeline, buyers weren't ready for a unibody pickup with odd styling. For the 2017 model, the design is normal—and unibody refinement might be a concept whose time has come.
While connected technologies for passenger vehicles are moving toward more widespread, everyday use, the benefits of improved performance, safety, durability, and fuel economy offered by connected vehicles are rapidly gaining a foothold in the off-highway market as well, says Dana's George Constand.
