X-By-Wire Automotive Systems

This book contains 46 papers covering the past ten years (1999-2008) of research on various by-wire systems, looking at the challenges faced by design engineers as traditional hydraulic or mechanical linkages are replaced by electronic control systems. Topics covered include: Architecture and Software Considerations; Brake-By-Wire Systems; Steer-By-Wire Systems; Drive-By-Wire Systems; Communication Networks The book also includes editor Ronald K. Jurgen's introduction "Replacing Hydraulics and Mechanics with Electronics" and a concluding section on future trends in X-By-Wire systems.

Navigation and Intelligent Transportation Systems

Navigation and Intelligent Transportation Systems contains 40 papers covering the technical and functional aspects of these systems including: 3D mapping, route guidance, cellular phone access, electronic compasses, and the history and future of navigation systems. The book also covers the important role of navigation in Intelligent Transportation Systems concerned with traffic management, traveler information, vehicle control systems, commercial vehicle operations, and public and rural transportation systems. The book concludes with a chapter on the Intelligent Vehicle Initiative, a joint program between the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Federal Highway Administration, and the Federal Transit Administration.

Multiplexing and Networking

Multiplexing - the simultaneous transmission of more than one signal over a single wire - was originally used to eliminate the need for bulky wiring harnesses. Today, multiplexing and networking are being used in many automobiles to monitor performance and rapidly pass data in real time among the car's various subsystems. Multiplexing and Networking contains 70 landmark papers on multiplexing, networking considerations, and protocols. These papers address the many concerns associated with designing and choosing an electronic network including: media bandwith, electromagnetic (EMC) compatability, fault tolerance, serviceability, environmental requirements, network architecture, and cost.

Infotainment Systems

The field of in-vehicle infotainment systems covers a wide variety of digital applications, including internal connectivity, entertainment, external communications, navigation services, and radio. This book contains 87 papers covering the past eight years (2000-2007) of engineering developments related to infotainment systems.

Distributed Automotive Embedded Systems

Automotive embedded systems are distributed throughout modern vehicles using multiple vehicle networks partitioned across a variety of different electronic modules. As more complex control systems are used in automobiles, more distributed automotive embedded systems will be needed. This book contains 88 papers covering the past seven years (2001-2007) of research on the varying aspects of distributed embedded systems.

Autonomous Vehicles and V2V/V2I Communications Set

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.

Automotive Microcontrollers, Volume 2

This book contains 49 papers covering the past eight years (2000-2007) of research on automotive microcontrollers, providing a look at innovative design trends and the latest applications. Topics covered include: Microcontroller Design Concepts; Microcontroller Networking; System Testing/Diagnosis; Implementation Examples The book also includes editor Ronald K. Jurgen's introduction ("New Microcontroller Architectures Spark Innovative Applications") and a concluding section on future developments in automotive microcontrollers.

Adaptive Cruise Control

This book contains 63 papers covering the past 11 years (1996-2006) of research on the progress and challenges in the design of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) systems and components. Introduced in the automotive market in 1995, ACC takes advantage of the functions of several existing electronic control units and adds a sensor for measuring distance, relative speed, and lateral position of potential target vehicles using laser optics or millimeter waves.
