  • Disciplines in Automotive Engineer Safety Engineering Fuel Economy/Emissions Vehicle Dynamics Vehicle Electronics Performance Shift Quality Durability / Corrosion engineering Package / Ergonomics Engineering etc
  • Safety Engineering Assessment of various crash scenarios and their impact on the vehicle occupants Requirements Include: Seat belt and air bag functionality Front and side impact testing Full vehicle crashes Assessments are done with various methods and tools: Computer crash simulation Crash test dummies
  • Fuel Economy/Emissions It is the measured fuel efficiency of the vehicle in miles per gallon or litres per 100 kilometers. Emissions testing the measurement of the vehicles emissions: hydrocarbons nitrogen oxides (NOx) carbon monoxide (CO) carbon dioxide (CO2), and evaporative emissions
  • Vehicle Dynamics It is the vehicle's response of the following attributes: ride, handling, steering, braking, comfort and traction Design of the chassis systems: suspension, steering, braking, structure (frame), wheels and tires, and traction control Dynamics engineer to deliver the Vehicle Dynamics qualities desired
  • Automotive electronics is an increasingly important aspect of automotive engineering Responsible for operational controls throttle, brake and steering controls comfort and convenience systems infotainment and lighting systems It would not be possible for automobiles to meet modern safety and fuel economy requirements without electronic controls Vehicle Electronics
  • Performance is a measurable and testable value of a vehicles ability to perform in various conditions how quickly a car can accelerate (e.g. standing start 1/4 mile elapsed time, (0- 60 mph, etc.) Generate without losing grip, recorded lap times, cornering speed, brake fade, etc Performance can also reflect the amount of control in inclement weather (snow, ice, rain) Performance
  • Trends in automotive > 1920 + pneumatic systems low high technical skills + hydraulic systems low driving skills > 1950 + electric systems increasing good technical skills increasing driving skills > 1980 + electronic systems congestion low technical skills + optronic systems starts high driving skills > 2010 + nanoelectronics congested very low technical skills + biotronic systems optimization decreasing driving skills starts > 2040 + robotics maximal and no technical skills + nanotechnology optimized no driving skills CAR Technology TRAFFIC DRIVER SKILLS > 1891 mechanical system very low very high technical skills
  • Automotive Electronics Phase 1: Introduction of Electronics in non-critical applications Driver information and entertainment e.g. radio, Comfort and convenience e.g. electric windows, wiper/washer, seat heating, central locking, interior light control Low intelligence electronic systems Minor communication between systems (pushbutton control) No impact on engine performance No impact on driving & driver skills
  • Automotive Electronics Phase 2: Electronics support critical applications Engine optimization: e.g. efficiency improvement & pollution control Active and Passive Safety e.g. ABS, ESP, airbags, tire pressure, Xenon lamps Driver information and entertainment e.g. radio-CD-GPS, parking radar, service warnings Comfort, convenience and security: e.g. airco, cruise control, keyless entry, transponders Increasingly complex and intelligent electronic systems Communication between electronic systems within the car Full control of engine performance No control of driving & driver skills But reactive correction of driver errors. Electronics impact remains within the car
  • Automotive Electronics Phase 3: Electronics control critical applications Full Engine control e.g. start/stop cycles, hybrid vehicles Active and Passive Safety e.g. X by wire, anti-collision radar, dead-angle radar Driver information and entertainment e.g. traffic congestion warning, weather and road conditions Comfort and convenience Very intelligent and robust electronics Communication between internal and external systems Information exchange with traffic network Full control of engine performance Control of driving and (decreasing) driving skills Proactive prevention of dangerous situations inside and around the car Full control of car and immediate surroundings
  • Automotive Electronics Phase 4: Fully Automatic Driver (1st generation) Traffic network takes control of the macro movements (upper layers) of the car Automatic Driver executes control of the car and immediate surroundings (lower and physical layers) ADAM : Automatic Driver for Auto-Mobile or EVA : Elegant Vehicle Automat Driver has become the Passenger for the complete or at least for most of the journey Driver might still be necessary if ADAM becomes an Anarchistic Driver And Madman or EVA becomes an Enraged Vehicle Anarchist
