Truly Automated Light and Color Measurement for Tell-Tales and Indicators

In Conjunction with SAE

Evaluating the accuracy of light and color across instrument clusters is a challenge compounded by several factors. The number of indicators, the varying location of symbols, and the range of colors on an automotive display prove complex for automated inspection systems and human inspectors alike. This 30-minute Webinar explores Auto-POI, the latest technology for light and color measurement of multi-point inspection areas using an Imaging Colorimeter, enabling automated evaluation across entire instrument clusters.

A New Paradigm in Turbulence Modeling for Aerodynamic Simulation

In Conjunction with SAE

Whether for cars, trucks, aircraft, or wind turbines, aerodynamics is a critical aspect of improving energy efficiency. Aerodynamics is a complex science — calculations need to be performed with a high degree of precision and accuracy, since every 1 percent of change in aerodynamic drag or lift has enormous implications on machine performance. Aerodynamic simulation, therefore, requires accurate flow solvers, comprehensive turbulence models, and precise geometry handling.
