Selecting Electric Traction Solutions for AGVs and Mobile Robots

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34112
Published 2019-04-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Smarter, better, faster, less expensive — those words are the mantra of today’s global economy. As organizations seek to streamline operations and do more with less, they increasingly focus on automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and similar vehicles to help get the job done. By 2022, analysts expect the global AGV market sector alone to hit $2.65 billion. To meet demand, OEMs will need traction technologies that perform unquestionably while remaining rugged, economical, and easy to install and maintain. Electric traction solutions deliver on all counts.


Welded Flash Controlled, High Strength (690 MPa Tensile Strength) Low Alloy Steel Hydraulic Tubing, Stress Relieved, Annealed for Bending, Double Flaring, Cold Forming, and Brazing

Published 2019-02-27 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Standard covers stress relieved electric resistance welded flash controlled single wall high strength low alloy steel tubing intended for use in high-pressure hydraulic lines and in other applications requiring tubing of a quality suitable for bending, double flaring,cold forming and brazing. Material produced to this specification is not intended to be used for single flare applications due to the potential leak path caused by the ID weld bead. The grade of material produced to this specification is of micro-alloy content. Nominal reference working pressures for this tubing are listed in ISO 10763 and SAE J1065. Brazed and/or welded tube assembly configurations made to specific geometry and components in association with this material may require qualification testing in accordance with ISO 19879. Cold forming the tube end configurations avoids this systemic testing by not compromising the structural integrity of the tube material. In an effort to standardize within a global marketplace and ensure that companies can remain competitive in an international market, it is the intent to convert to metric tube sizes, which will:…

SAE J1939-31 Network Layer describes the requirements and services for Network Interconnection ECUs (NIECU) that enable electronic control units (ECUs) on a network segment to intercommunicate with other ECUs on different network segments of the vehicle network. This document defines various types of NIECUs. The information in this document applies only to ECUs that are intended to provide networking services. It is not necessary for an ECU to provide any of these services in order to be compliant with the SAE J1939 protocol.

Application of CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) Superelement Technique for NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) Attributes on a Trimmed-Body Vehicle Structure in Order to Assist Supplier Commodity Development Based Also on NVH Requirements

Ford Motor Company-Gimaezio Gomes Carvalho, Luis Guilherme Mariano Viana Martins
Published 2017-11-07 by SAE International in United States
The business environment is ever changing, several innovations have allowed companies to transcend borderlines and become global entities. While the opportunities are numerous so are the challenges. In this fiercely competitive global marketplace, success requires companies to pay closer attention to supplier relations. The relationship between an automotive industry and its suppliers is an example of it, so the application of CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) superelement technique may improve, in terms of NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness), the vehicle development efficiency, without compromising confidentiality directives. Most of NVH requirements must be tracked through Transfer Functions (TFs) analyses at response points located on the Trimmed-Body Finite Element Model (FEM), as for example: Point Mobility, Vibration Transfer Function (VTF) and Acoustic Transfer Function (ATF). As the Trimmed-Body is an assembly of sub-systems, some of them developed in-house and other by external suppliers, FEM and TFs must be cascaded to all sub-system developers, including external suppliers. Confidentiality directives do not allow FE models sharing with external suppliers, precluding commodities development by suppliers to be driven by NVH attribute…

Automotive industry is looking for new design and product development practices to become more competitive. Challenges in current global market have often included sustainable development, environmental regulation and innovative solution to reach customer needs. Today, carmakers are striving to take competitive advantages over global marketplace. Model-Based-Design (MBD) seems to be a feasible answer to improve software development practices in automotive industry. Furthermore, it has been reported as a novel development approach to develop advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Among ADAS technologies often required to reduce driver fatigue is Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS). By using an auxiliary servomotor, it can reduce significantly driver effort in parking maneuvers. In this scenario, this paper aims to describe how MBD can be used to design EPAS control system. In addition, the tests Model-In-the-Loop (MIL), Software-In-the-Loop(SIL) and Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) are also performed.

Facing the new disruptors

Industry leaders remain so by staying ahead of the next ‘big’ trend. They view emerging shifts in business and technology as opportunities, regardless of the disruption such trends portend. Even when faced with unexpected (i.e., a natural disaster) or expected (global regulatory) shifts, suppliers must be agile and decisive. Ignorance of disruption is not an excuse.
