A New Calibration System for the Daimler Chrysler Medium and Heavy Duty Diesel Engines - An Exercise in Methods & Tools

High demands in fuel consumption, efficiency, and low emissions lead to complex control functions for current and future diesel engine management systems. Great effort is necessary for their optimal calibration. At the same time, and particularly for cost reasons, many variants exist on one individual type of diesel engine management system. Not only is it used for several base engines, but these engines are also used in different environments and for different tasks. For optimal deployment, their calibration status must also be optimized individually. Furthermore, the demand for shorter development cycles and enhanced quality lead to a catalogue of new requirements for the calibration process and the affiliated tool. A new calibration system was developed, which optimally reflects the new demands.

Collaborative Product Creation Driving the MOST Cooperation

The following document offers insight into the work of the MOST Cooperation. Now that MOST is on the road, a short overview of five years of successful collaborative work of the partners involved and the results achieved will be given. Emphasis is put on the importance of a shared vision in combination with shared values as a prerequisite for targeted collaborative work. It is also about additional key success factors that led to the success of the MOST Cooperation. Your attention will be directed to the way the MOST Cooperation sets and achieves its goals. And you will learn about how the organization was set-up to support a fast progression towards the common goal. The document concludes with examples of recent work as well as an outlook on future work.

Evaluation on Analytical Tire Models for Vehicle Vertical Vibration Simulation Using Virtual Tire Testing Method

This paper evaluates several durability tire models using Virtual Tire Testing (VTT) strategy. VTT conducts tire testing (simulation) using LS–DYNA based on a Virtual Tire which is built by 3–D finite element mesh. VTT is repeatable and could do special tire tests which can't be done using normal tire testing bench. A brief review is given on durability tire models and several typical tire models are selected for this study. All the necessary parameters for establishing the analytical tire models are extracted from the Virtual Tire. Quarter vehicle model is used to simulate the vehicle vertical vibration. The comments of those analytical tire models are given based on their performance vs. VTT.

Using Model and Code Reviews in Model-based Development of ECU Software

In the automotive industry, the model-based approach is increasingly establishing itself as a standard paradigm for developing control unit software. Just as code reviews are widespread in classical software development as a quality assurance measure, models also have to undergo a stringent review procedure – particularly if they serve as a starting point for automatic implementation by code generators. In addition to these model reviews, the generated production code is reviewed later in the development process by performing auto code reviews. This article will present procedures for and give an account of experiences with model and code reviews which have been adapted to the model-based development process.
