Back in the early sixties, a car’s intake valve would open for a specific duration during a predetermined time in the engine’s four-stroke cycle. It was not an especially flexible system, but in the early days of motor vehicles, this wasn’t a big problem. In the engines of those days, idle and operating RPMs were often quite similar. However, as vehicles advanced in complexity, the range of potential RPMs widened, leading to greater compromises in systems with static valve timing. The need for a better solution lead to the rise of variable valve timing (VVT).
When contending with the complicated and interconnected devices of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), the question of trustworthiness is often introduced. How do we make certain that the systems as designed are worthy of trust? Questions like this are intuitive and necessary, of course. However, they often lack the rigorous framework needed for a robust implementation in system design. “Trust” is a word that we may all think we understand, but when applying it to a network connected device in a crucial automotive subsystem, the word’s precise formulation becomes paramount.
As driverless technologies rise to prominence, the safety and functionality of crucial automotive systems, is becoming an ever more pressing issue. Because of this, the embedded controls industry is on a lot of people’s minds. Even so, in some sectors, we are suffering from a lack of engineers with the right skill sets to drive the industry forward.
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.
LHP is excited to announce Intro to Engine Performance, an addition to our already successful, industry-recognized, 6-week bootcamps. The new bootcamp, located in San Antonio, Texas, offers participants an intensive 6-week, hands-on course on Engine Performance.
Dave Glass, LHP's CEO recently completed a podcast series with PTC through their Windchill blog. The Connected Engineer – PTC’s new podcast series aimed at the people who turn napkin sketches into reality. Host, Gavin Quinlan, cuts through the hype to talk truth with engineers, designers, and innovators about the product design challenges they are facing today and the trends of tomorrow.
