EDITORIAL: The case for hybrids remains strong

Automotive Engineering: March 2020

Published 2020-03-01 by SAE International in United States

What's the most effective business strategy for achieving a zero-emission future? In a utopian world, the legacy automakers that are still committed to nasty tailpipes, catalysts and liquid-hydrocarbon fuel would simply end production of all IC-engine vehicles one day and switch over to battery-electrics the next. Everybody pushes a big red button and voila!-it's done. Strident and impractical environmentalists, of whom I know a few, would love it.

My inbox has been inundated with notifications of exciting new construction equipment, power systems, and other advanced technologies to be revealed at the rapidly approaching ConExpo/Con-Agg and IFPE shows in March. For example, as I write this in mid-January, Kubota teases that it is entering a new product segment and will unveil new equipment at the Las Vegas event. And the onslaught will only intensify in the coming weeks.

What are your greatest needs related to Standards? That question is one I typically ask during my conversations and formal interviews with mobility-industry engineers. As might be expected, those involved with AV development tend to offer a robust list of standards they'd like SAE International to pursue.

Two years ago at the inaugural North American Commercial Vehicle (NACV) Show in Atlanta, a recurring theme from nearly every truck manufacturer and supplier press conference was vehicle uptime, along with the various telematics and connectivity solutions that enable fleet managers to keep their trucks on the road. While these certainly were important topics at this year's NACV Show, the dominant takeaway from the Georgia World Congress Center was that alternative propulsion is top of mind for many industry players.

“Today a bunch of idiot lights appeared in the minivan during my drive to work,” reported my spouse, Suzie, after she arrived home one evening last month. Sure enough, the cluster on our 2011 Honda Odyssey lit up like a Christmas tree when I turned on the ignition to investigate. The Check Engine light and two others were illuminated.

Active safety and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), along with increasingly sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) platforms-are the building blocks essential to climbing the SAE levels of automation. Acquisitions, partnerships and advanced-technology demonstrations in these areas are occurring at a dizzying rate, as the industry has set its sights on Level 4 (L4) automated vehicles (AVs).
