LHPES 2016 Road Show

The LHP team is on tour! Our engineers are packing up their roadie cases and visiting companies and technical events to demonstrate how embedded controls can be developed more effectively with powerful tools and efficient workflows.

Some of the presentations prepared for these visits include:

  • Accelerating your Embedded Controls with an Integrated Workflow
  • A Rapid Prototyping Workflow for Embedded Controls
  • Hardware-in-the-Loop Test Workflow for Automotive Controls
  • Implementing a Model-based Design and Test Workflow

Each of these presentations are prepared with an educational seminar and product demonstration format. LHP is always willing to tailor our workshops to the specific needs of the audience.

If you, your application, or your technical team can benefit from learning about these tools and workflows, be sure to contact platform@lhpes.com to schedule LHP’s participation in your event.

Applications with specific interest in embedded controls development would gain the most value from this participation. Relevant application profiles include:

  • Engineering environments that use Matlab/Simulink for modeling and National Instruments tools for testing – LHP’s prototyping workflow enables Simulink models to target directly to National Instruments hardware.
  • Organizations that use incremental development – LHP’s Desktop Test Environment provides a platform for design engineers to run their controller solutions against plant models.
  • Engineers that use hardware-in-the-loop testing – LHP’s HIL Test Platform provides a reconfigurable platform with a full suite of I/O and test functionality
  • Safety-critical processes that require structured V&V – LHP’s test software architecture enables manual, automated, and database-driven test systems that satisfy robust testing requirements
  • Manufacturing or support teams that require product test – LHP creates custom test systems, panels, signal/load generators, dataloggers, and interfaces to meet your support needs

Recent events have included company lunch and learns, technical events for IEEE and SAE, and university workshops.

The road trip schedule for this tour is filling up fast. To have the greatest flexibility of schedule and availability of seminars, contact platform@lhpes.com today.

See you on the LHP Tour!

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.
