This SAE Standard is equivalent to ISO Standard 6627 TR. Differences, where they exist, are shown in Appendix A with associated rationale. This SAE Standard specifies the dimensional features of commonly used oil control rings having two steel segments (rails) separated and expanded by one steel expander/spacer. The segments vary in width from 0.4 to 0.6 mm. The assembly width ranges from 2.5 to 4.75 mm. The 4.75 mm width is equivalent to existing 3/16 in applications. Expander design will vary considerably with piston ring manufacturer. The total circumferential deflection and the piston groove depth should be considered when designing these oil rings to optimize the fit of the ring assembly into the piston groove. This document applies to oil control rings up through 125 mm for reciprocating internal combustion engines. It may also be used for piston rings of compressors working under similar conditions

Because of the intense focus on CAFE and fuel emission standards, optimization of the automobile drivetrain is imperative. In light of this, component efficiencies have become an important factor in the drivetrain decision-making process. It has therefore become necessary to develop a universal standard to judge transmission efficiency. This SAE Recommended Practice specifies the dynamometer test procedure which maps a manual transmission’s efficiency. The document is separated into two parts. The first compares input and output torque throughout a specified input speed range in order to determine “in-gear” transmission efficiency. The second procedure measures parasitic losses experienced while in neutral at nominal idling speeds and also churning losses while in gear. The application of this document is intended for passenger car and light truck. All references to transmissions throughout this document include transaxles

Headlamps should illuminate the traffic scene ahead of the vehicle in such a way that the driver can operate the vehicle safely and in a relaxed manner. At the same time, negative effects on drivers of other vehicles, pedestrians and other people should be minimized. Various technical parameters such as beam pattern, mounting height, headlamp aiming, and source spectrum can be tuned to find the necessary compromise. The physiology of the vision system under specific nighttime conditions strongly influences these factors and how headlamps can be best optimized for visibility and comfort. The SAE Improved Roadway Illumination task force collected and reviewed relevant research on these topics. This document is a comprehensive summary of this information. The goal is to enable lighting experts, advocacy groups, and non-experts (journalists, consumer organizations, car drivers) to better understand the benefits and tradeoffs of improved roadway lighting with modern headlamp technology.

It is expected that Level 4 and 5 automated driving systems-dedicated vehicles (ADS-DVs) will eventually enable persons to travel at will who are otherwise unable to obtain a driver's license for a conventional vehicle, namely, persons with certain visual, cognitive, and/or physical impairments. This information report focuses on these disabilities, but also provides guidance for those with other disabilities. This report is limited to fleet operated on-demand shared mobility scenarios, as this is widely considered to be the first way people will be able to interact with ADS-DVs.
