Published 2019-11-04 by SAE International in United States
In recent years, the development of intelligent vehicle and new energy vehicles has advanced by leaps and bounds, which has further improved the safety requirements of controllers. And more and more component manufacturers are actively promoting the ISO 26262 standard “Road Vehicles-Functional Safety”. At the same time, the electronic parking brake (EPB) system is an indispensable electronic product of the intelligent vehicle, which brings convenience to drivers and improves vehicle safety. So it is necessary to develop an intelligent vehicle pneumatic EPB system based on the ISO 26262 standard to improve reliability and safety. In this paper, the concept phase of the ISO 26262 standard was analyzed and applied to the design of the EPB system. The risk assessment and risk analysis of the EPB system were carried out, and the corresponding safety objectives were formulated. In this paper, a dual MCU scheme was proposed to the EPB system, which contained the core MCU and the monitoring MCU. Then the hardware circuit is designed according to the proposed safety goal, including mutual reset circuit and…

Fault Detection in Single Stage Helical Planetary Gearbox Using Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) and Decision Tree with Histogram Features

BSACIST-Syed Shaul Hameed, Muralidharan Vaithiyanathan, Mahendran Kesavan
Published 2019-10-11 by SAE International in United States
Drive train failures are most common in wind turbines. Lots of effort has been made to improve the reliability of the gearbox but the truth is that these efforts do not provide a lifetime solution. Majority of failures are caused by bearing and gearbox. It also states that wind turbine gearbox failure causes the highest downtime as the repair has to be done at Original Equipment Manufacturer [OEM]. This work aims to predict the failures in planetary gearbox using fault diagnosis technique and machine learning algorithms. In the proposed method the failing parts of the planetary gearbox are monitored with the help of accelerometer sensor mounted on the planetary gearbox casing which will record the vibrations. A prototype has been fabricated as a miniature of single stage planetary gearbox. The vibrations of the healthy gearbox, sun defect, planet defect and ring defect under loaded conditions are obtained. The signals show the performance characteristics of the gearbox condition. These characteristics and their number of occurrences were plotted in a histogram graph. Predominant statistical features which represent…

Software Applications for the Control and Management of the Amine Swingbed Experiment

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35265
Published 2019-10-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

The Swingbed software applications provide for the control, command, fault detection, fault recovery, and telemetry monitoring aspects of the Amine Swingbed experiment. These software components are the Swingbed Loader Computer Software Configuration Item (CSCI), the Swingbed Control Module, and the Swingbed Ground Controller applications. As a whole, the Amine Swingbed experiment provides a means for investigating the removal of carbon dioxide from the International Space Station (ISS) crews’ breathing environment via a system of a vacuum-regenerated amine pressure swing absorption reaction beds. Its development and deployment aboard the ISS as an Express Rack pay-load serves to advance the use of the amine-based pressure swing absorption technology towards a level of technology readiness suitable for use in future space transportation systems, where the use of consumables for the removal of carbon dioxide from the breathable environment is not desirable.

The Right Stuff for Aging Electronics/Intermittence/No Fault Found

Universal Synaptics-Hector I. Knudsen
Published 2019-09-16 by SAE International in United States
For those in the avionics repair and maintenance business, the acronyms NFF (No Fault Found), NTF (No Trouble Found), and CND (Cannot Duplicate) are, unfortunately, all too familiar terms. After several decades of frustration with this illusive phenomenon, it continues to consume an enormous amount of test and diagnostic effort and is the source of considerable cost and discomfort within the multi-level avionics repair model.There are undoubtedly many causes of NFF and all of them should be addressed. The question is: Where do you start and which solution will be the most beneficial?Our particular efforts have focused on the literal or statistical analysis of NFF, recognizing that if the system’s MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) has decreased, or if the device's NFF rate has increased with age and deterioration, a physical fault is most likely present. However, if it isn’t found during conventional testing then it probably only fails intermittently. Similarly, having an intermittent failure mode, it in all probability cannot be detected or diagnosed at testing time because of known and demonstrated limitations in…

Safety Analysis: The Key to a Single-Pass ISO26262 Random Fault Workflow

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34629
Published 2019-06-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Advanced driver-assistance systems and autonomous drive technologies increase the complexity of automotive integrated circuits (ICs), making it harder to ensure that ICs are protected from random hardware faults. Safety mechanisms must be inserted to identify and control these unpredictable functional failures, and ISO26262 requires that the effectiveness of every safety mechanism is proven.

A Fault Tolerant Time Interval Process for Functional Safety Development

Ford Motor Co., Ltd.-Daniel Denomme, Sam Hooson
kVA-James Winkelman
Published 2019-04-02 by SAE International in United States
During development of complex automotive technologies, a significant engineering effort is often dedicated to ensuring the safe performance of these systems. An important aspect to consider when assessing the viability of different safety designs or strategies is the time period from the occurrence of a fault to the violation of a Safety Goal (SG). This time period is commonly referred to as the Fault Tolerant Time Interval (FTTI). In Automotive Safety, ISO 26262 [1] calls for the identification and appropriate partitioning of the FTTI, however very little guidance is provided on how to do this. This paper presents a process, covering the entire safety development lifecycle, for the identification of timing constraints and the development of associated requirements necessary to prevent Safety Goal violations.

Regression Techniques for Parameter Estimation of a Synchronous Machine from Sudden Short-Circuit Testing

P.C. Krause And Associates Inc.-Brett A. Robbins, Will Perdikakis
US Air Force-Kevin J. Yost
Published 2019-03-19 by SAE International in United States
A sudden short-circuit (SSC) laboratory test of an electric machine is a commonly used procedure to estimate model parameters that accurately represent the dynamic response of the machine. While the graphical interpretation of the short-circuit current is often discussed in great detail, the numerical methods used to determine the solution for the machine parameter estimation is a challenging proposition. In this paper, the authors present an integral regression technique to fit the characteristic equation of the short-circuit current to a curve that is composed of exponential decays that trail off to an unknown steady-state value in the presence of noise. The proposed estimation method is applied to laboratory data from an aerospace synchronous machine.

Self-Stabilizing, Distributed, Symmetric, Fault-Tolerant Synchronization

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-33923
Published 2019-03-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Distributed systems have become an integral part of safety-critical computing applications, necessitating system designs that incorporate complex fault-tolerant resource management functions to provide globally coordinated operations with ultra-reliability. As a result, robust clock synchronization has become a required fundamental component of fault-tolerant, safety-critical distributed systems. Since physical oscillators are inherently imperfect, local clocks of nodes of a distributed system, driven by these oscillators, do not keep perfect time and can drift with respect to real time and one another. Thus, the local clocks of the nodes must periodically be re-synchronized. As a result, a fault-tolerant system needs a clock synchronization algorithm that tolerates imprecise local clocks and faulty behavior by some processes.

Management of RAM Fault for Safety Applications

John Deere-Anavaratha Selvan Ganapathi
Published 2019-01-09 by SAE International in United States
As safety compliance (ISO 26262) has become a norm for automotive embedded software development, the OEMs and Tier1 are pushed to follow the safety guidelines during hardware, software development process. This demands the microcontroller to not only detect internal faults but also find the exact root cause of the failure and have a self-healing mechanism. This paper presents proposed fault detection, injection, testing and shows comparison of microcontroller fault handling with respect to ISO26262 safety standard between proposed method and traditional method by giving the example of RAM test. Also gives an overview of software implementation of this concept as per AUTOSAR standard.
