LHP Engineering Solutions to Speak at Engine Expo 2015

Dan White, Chief Engineer of the Platform Division of LHP Engineering Solutions, will speak at the Engine Expo in Novi, Michigan on October 20 on the topic of “Model-based design for rapid prototyping of engine controls”.

This technical presentation outlines solutions for quickly developing and validating new engine control strategies using Mathworks Simulink and National Instruments hardware for rapid control prototyping (RCP). Tools and processes to support flexible architecture, model-based design, measurement and calibration are presented. Different approaches will be explored to demonstrate the advantages of alternative methods. Tool selection and the factors to consider relating to system cost, effectiveness, workflow and long-term flexibility will all be discussed. The RCP workflows to be demonstrated using the LHP Panthera RCP Suite will display clear advantages for improving the effectiveness of engine control prototyping.

Today’s job market looks more different than it ever has before. Industries that our grandparents and great-grandparents once knew are becoming obsolete due to the rising trend in autonomy. Remember when you heard someone say, “robots will take over the world one day?” Well, they weren’t wrong, but maybe it’s not such a bad thing. The automotive industry is being propelled forward by technology and autonomous features, and the next job to be taken over by a robot is “driver.”

Do you remember years ago a toy train set that could be connected by magnets? The magnetic pull would force each individual train to follow the one that came before it. With enough magnetic pull, there would be three or four trains connected, following each other in the same path on the wooden train tracks. Now, let’s expand our thinking and apply this to today’s modern technology. Imagine you are driving down the interstate when you see three or four trucks following, no more than 10 feet behind the other. Except this time, they are not connected by a magnetic pull, but by IoT technology. According to the Washington Post, A wave of new technology intended to make trucks safer — using radar, cameras and reflective light scanning — is sweeping the industry. This new wave of technology is defined as platooning, and it is becoming very real in the trucking industry.

As automobiles continue to become cleaner, higher performing, and more reliable, their designs evolve. One critical system undergoing dramatic change is the fuel system; according to US EPA predictions, DI fuel systems in light-duty vehicles have been growing and are expected to grow to over 90% of the share of vehicles sold by 2025. As researchers and developers continue to innovate and look for engine solutions, understanding how to control these fuel systems is of the utmost importance.
