Category • Test Controls, Autonomous Driving, ADAS

Improving driving safety through the reduction in opportunities for human error has been a focus of automotive manufacturers since the 1970s when anti-lock braking systems were first introduced. Automated features have since evolved to include more advanced technologies such as blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and self-parking. These features are now commonly known as advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).

Category • Electric Vehicle, Hybrid

One of the most integral elements of the Hybrid Electrical Vehicle or HEV is the control technology. Due to these vehicles operating in a vast range of environments the motor will regularly switch through various loads. With that said, the most important issue is improving motor control efficiency while maintaining performance and avoiding damage. It’s wise to test control algorithms for motor control through simulation before applying power to any circuit. Especially when working with hundreds of volts and/or hundreds of amps of current. A simple mistake in your control algorithm can damage components or even worse cause collateral damage.

A Cleaner Powertrain Design Driven by Stringnet Emission Standards

By Megan Verkamp
August 28, 2018

Category • Electric Vehicle, Powertrain

The driver of electric and hybrid vehicle development is a major increase in stringent government emissions regulations. In 2011, the Obama administration announced an agreement with the thirteen largest automakers to increase the average fuel economy to 54.5 miles per gallon by the year 2025. The agreement resulted in new Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations for model years between 2017-2025. With cleaner emissions in mind, hybrid vehicles are rising in popularity. HEVs offer a cleaner, redesigned powertrain nad unique advantage in efficiency improvements

Category • Job Search, Recruiting, Employment

As technology continues to evolve from traditional ‘turn-the-crank’ engineering to total autonomy, the gap in experience and desired skill level seems to widen each day. Today, organizations are seeking engineers with 5+ years of experience, when in reality, the technology companies want the engineers to work on is only now becoming a standard in engineering processes and workflows. How does our industry overcome this gap in experience? What can companies do to communicate this gap to potential employees?

Adapting to New Testing Needs and Standards in the Automotive Industry

Recent events such as China’s plans to scrap pure internal combustion engines as soon as 2030, the release of Tesla’s model 3, and announcements by several large automakers about ramping up EV production and possibly eliminating gasoline-powered vehicle production, have accelerated efforts to develop competitive electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid vehicles across the automotive industry i. But, even with falling purchase prices for many hybrids and plug-in EVs (PEVs), rising gasoline prices, and various government incentives for purchasing electrified vehicles, this change isn’t happening overnight.
