SAE International's Ground Vehicle Standards activity is recruiting industry participants for a Cooperative Research Project (CRP) for Safe and Interoperable Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) for charging hybrid and electric vehicles.
Electrification was supposed to spell death for the manual transmission. The same has been said for manuals and automated driving systems. But BorgWarner is in the final stages of developing a new clutch-automation technology that allows electrification with a Manual transmission.
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.
Digital data is expanding to include equipment on the factory floor, making it possible for designers and manufacturers alike to model and simulate nearly everything before vehicles and their production lines exist in the real world.
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.
