Where intelligence goes
Changes in distributed or embedded control as well as processor
power are altering automotive computing hierarchy.
Making chassis magic
Nothing beats veteran ride-and-handling engineers in creating a
truly integrated chassis. But simulation is increasingly vital to
their seat-of-the-pants development work.
Mass reduction--the next frontier
Automakers turn their attention to reducing vehicle weight in the
quest for greater fuel efficiency.
Electricity drives forward
Continuous advances in component design and integration are helping
to overcome cost and performance obstacles.
At your service
As cost and human-resource pressures mount, testing and engineering
outsourcing heats up and alters roles within the industry.
Finding the right Formula
The University of Wisconsin-Madison won the annual Formula SAE
student competition held in Michigan, beating more than 130 other
teams aiming to conceive, design, and fabricate the best, small
formula-style racing car.
