Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of TBMG: Advances in Wearable Technologies

Wearable devices are gaining widespread use in industries such as medical, military/defense, and consumer products. These devices range from passive monitors and diagnostic systems to complex surveillance devices. One area where great strides are currently being made are robotic prosthetics and powered exoskeleton bionic devices to help people with severe disabilities live more normal lives. As the technologies incorporated in these wearables – including sensors and electronics – become increasingly more complex, design engineers must learn how best to package and integrate them for maximum comfort, durability, and efficiency.

Requirements Engineering for Safety-Critical Systems

In safety-critical projects, Requirements Engineering is often perceived as a “necessary evil” rather than active support in the development process. Challenges arise between the writing of requirements, categories and levels of abstraction, and the high degree of freedom in Functional Safety Standards, and the practical benefits of effective requirements engineering are lost.

ASTM D4169: A Historical Perspective, plus Review and Implications of D4169-16

WESTPAK's protective package system testing professionals present a webinar focused on ASTM D4169. We begin with a historical perspective of D4169 and its origin to provide you with a background on protective package testing protocols. Then we review D4169-16 and compare it against the prior revisions. We discuss options available if your test fails the –16 revision after passing prior revisions. Live Q&A will be included during the broadcast.

Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of SAE: Advances in Unmanned System Propulsion

In Conjunction with SAE

The development of new propulsion technologies has been the focus of R&D looking to provide the functionality needed for unmanned aircraft systems, including vertical takeoff and landing, long endurance, stealthy operations, and stability in hostile environments. Their development also incorporates advances in scalability, re-configurability, and extensions that host functions to legitimate business opportunities such as goods delivery, agriculture, firefighting, news gathering, and military operations. Success means reduced operation and maintenance costs as well as less complexity, but it also brings higher functioning systems.

Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of SAE: Connected Vehicles & Jobsites

In Conjunction with SAE

Fleet owners have been deploying telematic solutions for some time, but connectivity is still just beginning to move from early adopters to mass market. Connectivity is providing more owners and operators a broad range of benefits, prompting a surge of developments by OEMs and suppliers. Chief among those benefits are safer, more efficient, and productive vehicles and worksites, both on- and off-highway. Yet technical challenges remain with development and testing of V2X communication, cybersecurity, and how to best utilize Big Data.

System Simulation for Aerospace and Defense Applications

In Conjunction with SAE

This 60-minute Webinar examines LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim™ software, which is used throughout the aerospace and defense industries because of its rich, deep libraries and robust, easy-to-use simulation platform. The LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim™ platform is presented in detail with specific emphasis on aerospace and defense applications. Its well-integrated set of libraries is shown, and specific examples in thermal, hydraulic, fuel system, electrical system, flight control, and propulsion are demonstrated. An example of a complete aircraft system, integrating each aircraft engineering discipline, is given. The examples focus on parametric studies, optimization, and design trade studies, which drive decision-making early in the design process.

Fast-Tracking ADAS and Autonomous Vehicle Development with Simulation

In Conjunction with SAE

Developing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles is a challenge without precedent. Whole new engineering fields – such as artificial intelligence – need to be developed, yet time-to-market is short with intense competition. Estimates indicate that billions of miles of road testing will be necessary to ensure safety and reliability of ADAS and autonomous vehicles. This impossible task can only be accomplished with the help of engineering simulation. With simulation, thousands of driving scenarios and design parameters can be virtually tested with precision, speed, and cost economy.
