  • Connected Engineering
    Toggle Abstract

    KEYNOTE Vehicle recalls due to E/E parts or system failures are hitting the headlines around the globe. The main reason is problems found too late in development processes with OEMs and Suppliers, which typically deploy 180 different tools from 50 vendors. The tools and processes are aging, data gets entered multiple times, data gets lost in interfacing between different solutions and is manually translated and partially tracked in many disconnected locations. At the same time complexity continues to grow and the introduction of new technology and major standards like 48V, ADAS, Autonomous Driving, AUTOSAR, ISO26262, Ethernet, Electrification of the Vehicle, KSK and LED/Laser lighting increase the challenges OEMs and supply change face. The solution is to consolidate major parts of the flow, enabling digital data continuity and introducing design automation where possible.

    The Connected Engineering™ approach supports OEMs and supply-chain to optimize quality and cost with market leading technologies from start to finish. It covers the entire automotive E/E design flow from Function/Software/ECU/Electrical architecture evaluation through to implementation with software and hardware applications. Connected Engineering™ also encompasses thermal analysis, process optimization, electrical systems and harness design and finally on-demand vehicle service documentation.

  • Laser Headlamps: Latest Developments and Future Prospect
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION As LEDs are gradually setting standards in automotive head-lighting, we already have seen examples of laser headlamps touted as the future of high end automotive lighting. A diode laser pumped remote phosphor based white light source can much better than LEDs in terms of luminance and design flexibility. Diode lasers need smaller optics and hence, can offer sleek and unprecedented design possibilities.
    However, the 445 nm commercial blue laser diodes have a limited external quantum efficiency in the range of roughly 30% and heat management is a crucial issue for stable performance and durability.
    Also, the remote phosphor module is a very important component of the so called laser headlamp and the selection of the phosphor depends on its optical and thermal properties. This talk will focus on some latest developments and highlight the potential and challenges of laser headlamp technology.

  • Every Engineer's a Cost Engineer – Understand Your Design Options via Real-time Metrics
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Every engineer is a born optimizer, motivated to create elegant solutions to meet all of the requirements and constraints of a modern platform. However, they can only optimize what they can measure, and understanding the impact of a change on a platform with hundreds of end customer features across thousands of configurations is impossible with traditional engineering tools.

    This session shows how synthesis technology, coupled with dynamic metrics, can be easily mined, compared, and configured to empowers engineers with greater insight into the total design. Armed with this information they can make better decisions to produce better, more optimized designs.

  • Feel the Heat in the Automotive Industry: Thermal Simulation as an integral part of the Design Process!
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Today’s automotive products have to be in line with the automotive industry's megatrends that make driving safer, more comfortable and more sustainable. High performance products, such as Navigation-, Multimedia-, Telematics-Systems, Instrument Cluster and Head-Up Displays will make Individual mobility more comfortable. Products, focusing on driving safety, collision avoidance and protection during accidents will make individual mobility saver and additionally more sustainable, when products help to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
    The design of these highly complex automotive systems requires the interaction of mechanical, electrical and software engineers in order to fulfill requirements from mechanical stability and thermal management to electromagnetic compliance within a wide range of ambient temperatures and environmental conditions. The consequent employment of computer-based simulation, such as thermal simulation, supports the exploitation of a design’s potential, enables the comparison of different concepts and variants and contributes to numerically supported design decisions. Such up-front simulations, also called virtual analyses, an integral part of the design process, enable us to test and modify system and components as virtual prototypes before performing physical tests and building real prototypes.
    In this presentation we focus on typical tasks and problems involved in the thermal design and simulation of such systems for automotive applications. A Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD-) program is necessary to simulate heat transfer and air flow concurrently. Employed is the commercial CFD-program FLOTHERM (Mentor Graphics) to simulate the three cooling mechanism conduction, convection, radiation.
