The Knapheide Manufacturing Co. has always sent its products out to be tested, but with the wide variety of product types that the Quincy, Ill.-based company makes, the cost of farming out the testing process had become excessive. The manufacturer specializes in the North American utility truck body market, both military and civilian grade, including crane trucks, electrician trucks, and Class 8 heavy-duty truck chassis.

Simulation has become a critical element in design and validation, expanding its reach to nearly every facet of vehicle development. Partnerships and cloud computing are among the techniques being used as tool developers strive to make it easier for programmers and engineers to see how the many elements in vehicle systems interact.

Powertrain developers who spoke at SAE COMVEC are leaving no stone unturned in their quest to trim emissions.

The push to trim engine emissions is prompting industry-wide efforts to use substitutes for diesel fuel. Alternative fuels and electrified powertrains are making significant inroads, though design teams for diesel power aren't conceding the future.

Tritium works to accelerate installation of DC fast-charging infrastructure to keep up with growing demand for commercial EVs.

There's a potential speed bump up ahead on the road to commercial electric vehicle (EV) adoption that few people are talking about. By 2030-or maybe sooner-the demand for commercial EVs will outstrip the capacity of installed DC fast chargers (DCFC), according to Jeff Wolfe, Tritium's president of the Americas. The transportation industry will be unable to achieve the goals of electrification because there will not be enough money for capital expenditures, and there will not be enough interconnection engineers to install DCFC units.

The latest research indicates that well-integrated HMI (human-machine interface) systems lead to more attentive users that better retain task-related information and stay focused for longer with less reported effort. These systems also fit into the wider development trends in off-highway machines that affect operator fatigue in day-to-day tasks.
