Considerations When Integrating Additive Manufacturing into Aerospace and Ground Vehicle Development and Production Environments

Thursday, August 16, 2018

Join SAE International, Lockheed Martin, MIT, and LAI International to discuss integrating additive manufacturing into aerospace and ground vehicle applications. Topics of discussion include how additive manufacturing is expected to impact the aerospace and automotive industries as the field advances, the risks associated in introducing flight-critical additive manufacturing parts, the anticipated timeline for general acceptance of additive manufacturing parts by aerospace customers, and considerations when supplying additive manufactured products to the ground vehicle and aerospace industries.

Smart Cities and the V2X Factor

Thursday, August 16, 2018

Smart-city initiatives are nationwide, with individual cities and metro regions taking a multitude of paths to creating a more efficient, productive interaction between vehicles and their environment. This 60-minute Technical Webinar from the editors of SAE International examines the latest initiatives in vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication—the first steps toward a genuine smart-city vision. In the spotlight is the Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA), one of three groups selected by the U.S. Department of Transportation for a connected vehicle pilot program.

How It All Comes Together: Adhesive Solutions That Influence Performance, Design, and Reliability in EVs

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

While much has been published about the impact of extreme temperatures on battery systems used in EVs, liquid cooling appears to be the preferred method used to regulate battery temperatures. However, designers often overlook the importance of thermal interface materials (TIMs) in the overall performance of a battery management system. The purpose of this 60-minute Webinar is to provide technical guidance into the key critical-to-quality requirements (CTQs) needed to optimize TIM selection for a typical new energy vehicle (NEV) battery application.

A new generation of wheel force transducers has made it possible to obtain high-quality data in an efficient manner. In this Webinar, engineers discuss the development of this new system and how to use its data for improved vehicle development. Sponsor: MTS/PCB

How Long Will Your Battery Last? More Efficient Battery Management and EV Systems Design and Verification

Thursday, September 27, 2018

System designers are faced with the challenges of designing, optimizing, and verifying battery management and EV systems. It’s expected that more intelligent solutions based on electronics and semiconductors will be deployed. Semiconductor and battery systems manufacturers, as well as Tier 1 and OEM developers, require more efficient simulation-based solutions to achieve their product functionality and schedule. This 60-minute Webinar examines the challenges faced by different teams developing EV systems and explores how a multi-domain, integrated, simulation-based environment addressing system, control, software, and power electronics design and verification challenges can enable early development, design optimization, and verification of functional integrity and functional safety.
