The company is continuing to develop foundation tools for future autonomous driving by advancing the fundamentals of sensing, planning, and then acting to guide vehicle response. Mimicking a human-like response is requiring new algorithm and systems engineering that better exploits existing sensors.
Many people are skeptical of electrified vehicles (EVs)—and specifically the battery pack, because it is the most expensive part of the auto. By building an explanation that is more accessible to society, the industry (and the world!) will benefit.
Omega Engineering, Inc.’s new RTDM12 series of compact resistance temperature detector (RTD) sensors are extremely rugged with a molded (IP67) four-pin connector with M12 male thread and a fast response time.
The technology organization has developed an innovative process to help reduce the cost of composite component use. Features normally added in a separate operation, such as clips and inserts for threaded fasteners, can now be molded directly onto the back of high-quality composite panels, producing a more cost-effective part than a conventional bonded assembly.
The new mid-engine V10 model has enormous tire tracks to fill. It replaces the Gallardo, which, with 14,022 units produced over a decade, was far and away the most successful Lamborghini model in the company’s history.
A sophomore nabbed the top spot in a steel wheels competition focused on eye-appealing, lightweight-structure concept renderings from Lawrence Technological University design students. The 2014 competition required student designers to use the engineering results from the Steel Market Development Institute’s Lightweight Steel Wheel Project.
