Vehicle Technology: Vehicle Dynamics Forum
When:October 29, 2012 - 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Where:Las Vegas Convention Center, Grand Lobby, Vehicle Technology Center
The panelists for this session will include Jim Hollowell, Chrysler Vehicle Dynamics; SEMA Advisor Ed Browalski; Tom Gillespie of Mechanical Simulation; Jim Lau from VBOX; Santhosh Jogi of dSPACE; Terry Ledwidge from Link Engineering; Mandar Hazare with CU-ICAR; Jim Popio from Smithers Rapra; and Tim Watts of Superlift. Moderator: John Waraniak.
September 1, 2012, marked the date requiring aftermarket companies to comply with the U.S. Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 126 for Electronic Stability Control (ESC) systems. ESC monitors vehicle motion. When loss of driver control is imminent, ESC strategically applies the brakes to help stabilize the vehicle. Similar requirements for the rest of the global automotive community are contained in the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe 13H regulations.
SEMA’s Vehicle Dynamics Program and participating member companies have made significant achievements over the past five years in understanding how performance products such as suspension, brakes, wheels, tires and steering as well as engine modifications interact with ESC and other active safety systems. SEMA members are invited to attend the Vehicle Dynamics Forum presentations, demonstrations and solutions regarding FMVSS 126 and learn firsthand from the experts about the ESC performance of aftermarket-modified vehicles.
The hardware-in-the-loop technology available to members is the same as that used by all OEMs and major suppliers around the world to develop, test and simulate vehicle dynamics, new chassis system components, engines, powertrains, drivelines, suspensions and vehicle electronic control systems. The collaborative approach developed by SEMA has minimized costs while establishing unique capabilities for members that want to know the impact of their products on vehicle dynamics and ESC performance.
