  • The Basics of Automatic Guided Vehicle Systems
    Automatic Guided Vehicle Systems are one of the most exciting and dynamic areas in material handling today. But AGVS is really not so new. Fifty years ago when AGVS was invented it was then called driverless systems. Through the years advances in electronics have led to advances in guided vehicles
  • Performance, Robustness, and Durability of an Automatic Brake System for Vehicle Adaptive Cruise Control
    detection sensor is the focal point of the ACC control system, which determines and regulates vehicle acceleration and deceleration through a powertrain torque control system and an automatic brake control system.
  • Ultrasonic Air Temperature Sensing for Automatic Climate Control - Vehicle Test (.pdf)
    An ultrasonic air temperature sensor, intended to help improve automatic climate control (ACC), has been demonstrated in a vehicle. Ideally, ACC should be based on inputs correlated with thermal comfort. Current ACC systems do not measure the air temperature best correlated to thermal comfort
  • Vehicle Transmissions
    Automatic and manual vehicle transmissions have always been competitive with each other. While this is still true, each has found its niche in truck and bus markets. Advantages of manual over automatic transmissions are one-third to one-fourth lower cost, lower weight, and a greater number
  • Automatic Inductive Guidance System for Forklifts uses CANopen
    of this application is safety for the driver and the vehicle through an automatic self-test of the guidance system. With a resolution of up to ±0.04", the inductive guidance system is the ideal high accuracy solution for forklifts operating within narrow aisles. Unlike systems with selective guide information
  • Research: Assembly alternatives for wiring harnesses in vehicle dashboards.
    Today the most popular accessories in a new car are the electronic devices. However it is these vehicle instruments which drive up the cost and weight of a vehicle. Weight, because the conventional wiring harnesses have increased so much in volume and costs because automatic alignment and assembly
  • High-Efficiency Operation of an Hybrid Electric Vehicle Starter/Generator Over Road Profiles
    efficiency operation under both steady state and dynamic loading conditions. In steady-state conditions, automatic mapping of the maximum-efficiency operating points is achieved. Based on this data, the maximum possible efficiency under dynamic load profiling can be determined. In-vehicle dynamic loading
  • Automatic painted surface inspection and defect detection
    Buying a new car is a highly emotional act: a potential buyer will only spend a significant amount of money if he or she firmly believes in the value of the product under consideration. In this respect, the external appearance of a vehicle is of outmost importance: It is what generates the first
