The wheel rim consists of two aluminium (Al) parts, the inner Al carrier star with the Al brake disk and the outer Al rim well with the tyre. Unlike a conventional disc brake, the New Wheel Concept brake engages the Al disk from the inside. This allows it to have a particularly large diameter, enhancing braking performance.
Honeywell says the sensors were designed to improve the performance of aircraft systems and reduce maintenance costs associated with false readings. The Integral Health Monitoring aerospace proximity sensors can detect when a sensor has been damaged or impacted.
The Activac system debuted on 2017MY Ford F-150s powered by the second-generation 3.5-L EcoBoost V6. Weighing 1.82 lb, the vacuum-generation system, including hoses, replaced a 2.27 lb cam-driven mechanical pump.
Bruël & Kjær’s VSound Type 3115 vehicle sound-generating system—from both interior and exterior perspectives—enables virtual NVH prototype evaluation in the context of a real vehicle, without the need for a PC in the vehicle.
Constellium HSA6 from Constellium N.V. is a new generation of high-strength 6000-series alloys designed to help automakers meet growing demand for lighter-weight vehicles. It is in production for several 2017 and 2018 model year vehicles, including the Mini Countryman.
A Protonex and Insitu development team focused on packaging and integrating existing PEM fuel cell technology with the airframe. The resulting design comprised a redundant double stack design that produces 1.2 kW of power.
Eaton manufactured engine-driven pumps for the first flying MC-21 prototype and supplied additional system sub-components including thermal bypass valves, while Pratt & Whitney supplied its PW1000G GTF engine and Rockwell Collins, Honeywell, and Elbit supplies various avionics systems.
A recent Engineering program at the University of Michigan’s Dearborn campus jettisoned lectures and text books and replaced them with a fresh Design, Build, and Test curriculum including new lean-Startup courses addressing customer discovery techniques.
