TGDI Technology and Higher Performing Lubricants

Industry experts offer insight into one of the passenger car industry’s most impactful powertrain strategies: turbocharged gasoline direct injection (TGDI) technology. The global demand for TGDI engines is increasing as emission regulations become more stringent, consumer expectations for vehicle performance shift, and industry demand for fuel economy grows. In this 60-minute Webinar, experts from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, Honeywell Transportation Systems – Turbo Technologies, Southwest Research Institute, and Lubrizol Additives discuss TGDI technology and advanced lubricants that enable fuel efficiency, performance, and durability. An audience Q&A follows the technical presentations.

System Makes Airport Surface Traffic More Efficient

Researchers are attempting to improve the control tower software system using mathematics and optimization techniques. (Photo: ThinkStock) Researchers have developed an optimization system that identifies the optimal timing and taxiing sequences for runway use by a given aircraft. It plans detailed taxiing routes, recommends new routes automatically, and responds to a continuous stream of updated information. The model takes into account the basic rules and physical restrictions that apply at all airports, such as safety zones around turning aircraft and one-way taxiing routes.

Accelerate Development of Powertrain ECUs with Virtual Hardware

In conjunction with SAE Automotive powertrain ECUs are increasingly reliant on complex MCUs/SoCs with multicore architectures, complex programmable timers, such as Generic Timer Module (GTM) and communication protocols that integrate CAN-FD, FlexRay, and Ethernet. Beyond the hardware components, there is also greater reliance on embedded software to achieve the required fuel efficiency/emission standards and the need to satisfy safety standards, such as ISO 26262.
