For any motorsport engineering supplier tempted to carry its highly specialist expertise along the winding and often hazardous road to production vehicles, the journey can be fraught with nasty surprises. But some peel off to travel an alternative route to ensure that its technology takes it to a different and influential destination that nevertheless will influence OEM high-volume development. The United Kingdom's Xtrac is one of them.

The Novi facility will feature the most advanced VI-grade driving simulator in the U.S., enhancing development of everything from chassis dynamics to autonomous systems.

Multimatic, the Toronto-based supplier well known as the manufacturer of the Ford GT, will open a new virtual vehicle-dynamics development center in Novi, Michigan, in second quarter 2020. Partnering with simulation specialist VI-grade, the new “SimCenter” will be the first U.S. installation of VI-grade's largest 9-degrees-of-freedom automotive simulator. Available to industry clients, the simulator will provide a powerful virtual-development tool for everything from OEM suspension projects to start-up autonomous driving algorithms.

Veteran Boeing engineer Todd Zarfos brings an open-minded focus to the SAE presidency.

“Thrust” is a term that Todd Zarfos uses to describe moving forward, and that's not surprising since the 2020 SAE International president built his 35-year engineering career at Boeing. He's served as VP of Engineering for the 747, 767, and 777 programs-iconic commercial aircraft that have carried many of the world's ground-vehicle engineers in their travels. He also was VP of Product Development. Zarfos is the first aerospace-sector executive in quite a while to be selected for the year-long SAE presidency, and he brings a decidedly non-parochial and open-minded focus to this important role.

San Jose-based Tula Technology is best known for its innovative Dynamic Skip Fire technology. DSF uses sophisticated firing-control algorithms to adjust, on a cycle by cycle basis, the effective displacement of an IC engine. It's been proven on over a half-million GM V8s, providing optimum efficiency at each load point. DSF is considered a high-value solution for reducing CO2 emissions and for extending the ICE's market viability.

Hyundai at CES 2020 revealed a fullsize electric vertical-takeoff-and-landing (eVTOL) “air taxi” concept and confirmed it has joined Uber's aerial ride-share initiative known as Elevate. Hyundai said the S-A1 concept, in addition to its VTOL configuration, is designed for cruising speeds up to 180 mph (290 km/h) for trips of up to 60 miles (97 km). Operating altitudes are targeted at between 1,000 to 2,000 ft. (300 to 600 m) for the four-passenger vehicle. The S-A1's performance is within Uber Elevate's broad guidance for urban aero-rideshare designs.

Cadillac has unveiled the 2021 Escalade and will differentiate the full-size SUV from its Tahoe/Yukon platform-mates with a large dose of exclusive technologies including Super Cruise, audio systems from new partner AKG and the industry's slickest display-screen integration. Gaining similar mechanical benefits as its platform siblings, including wheelbase stretches and the new independent rear suspension (IRS) that should improve dynamics along with seating/cargo space, the all-new 2021 Escalade leverages the platform's new digital network architecture (see p.10) to raise the bar for integrated infotainment technology.
