Inside the Cockpit: How TE brings Fighter Jet Technology to Race Cars

Racing cars are a really tough environment. A racing car that’s comfortable for the driver is a slow car, so niceties like suspension travel get sacrificed for speed. However, that means all the other parts on the car have to withstand this environment. As weight is a critical element, the challenge is to make products smaller and lighter, but able to withstand vibration and heat.

A New Path for Lamination Adhesives: Leaping Time Barriers and Erasing Steps

Automotive manufacturers, particularly in North America, primarily use two-component waterborne, reactive hot-melt, and solvent-borne adhesives for laminating thermoplastic olefin, polyvinyl chloride and leather skins to polyethylene and polypropylene foams — for applications like interior door panels, consoles and instrument panels.

Architectures for Implementing a Hardware-in-the-Loop System

Safety, availability, or cost considerations can make it impractical to perform all the necessary tests with the complete embedded control system. Using hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation, you can simulate the parts of the system that pose these challenges. By thoroughly testing the embedded control device in a virtual environment before proceeding to real-world tests of the complete system, you can maintain reliability and time-to-market requirements in a cost-effective manner even as the systems you are testing become more complex. Download this whitepaper to find out more about implement a HIL system into your test environment.

Enhanced Tailpipe, Material Emission, and Leak Analysis with SIFT-MS

In Conjunction with SAE

Regulators and consumers demand increasingly lower levels of gaseous emissions from diverse automotive and aerospace sources, such as combustion exhaust, component emissions, and leakage. Emission compositions vary widely between sources but frequently consist of both volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and inorganic gases.

Eliminating Blind Spots in Commercial Trucking with IoT

Learn how Internet of Things (IoT) technology strategies are revolutionizing approaches to vehicle operations. On-board diagnostics and telematics systems are a good first step, but they only offer a singular view and limited scalability. Join Bsquare Sr. Director of Products Dave McCarthy and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Head of Business Development for IoT & Mobile Mark Relph for an informative webinar on Tuesday, April 11th at 9 AM (PDT) as they discuss:

Today's Automobile: Supercomputer on Wheels

With every passing year, it's getting more difficult to recognize the current crop of passenger vehicles as the descendants of Henry Ford's Model T. Those first mass-produced vehicles didn't even include a battery or starting system, relying instead on a hand-cranked engine with a magneto to provide ignition. As recently as 20 years ago, many cars were still essentially mechanical systems supplemented by hydraulic or electrical systems for handling functions like steering, ignition, lights, and audio entertainment.
