In-vehicle telematics has evolved over time with initial systems providing basic functions such as vehicle health reporting and location tracking. With the availability of higher-performance and more cost-effective computer and wireless (3G/4G, GPS) technologies, telematics is enabling a wider range of capabilities including navigation, driver behavior tracking, E-Call, and fuel-efficiency guidance.

Correct-by-construction design processes can be dramatically enhanced using simulation techniques, especially early in the design process. But simulation is too often the preserve of specialist staff, who may work disconnected from day-to-day design updates.
Diagram creation is an essential and until recently, laborious part of harness design. But today there are electrical ECAD tools that can automatically generate diagrams depicting a vehicle’s electrical system in whole or in part.
The paper covers the latest developments in automated diagram generation, explaining the tools and their benefits. A service documentation flow is introduced, with analysis of both manual and assisted development steps. The reader will gain an understanding of the current state of the art in automated diagram generation.
With the increased concerns over the future use of fossil fuels especially in automobiles, the rise of popular sentiment towards electric and hybrid electrical vehicles (EV) is no surprise. But there is still a major area of design challenge—batteries. As the primary means for storing the energy used for electrical vehicles, the battery of choice needs to be extremely efficient yet as lightweight as possible to allow for reasonable driving distance on a single charge. Although several factors affect the efficiency of these batteries, one of the most important is temperature.
Cars that drive themselves have long been a dream of futurists. Experiments with remote control date back nearly a century, and automated highways were talked about in the 1939 New York World’s Fair as part of “The World of Tomorrow.” But hopes for fully autonomous vehicles remained out of reach until recently, when the availability of new electronic technologies suddenly turned the fantasies of the past into present-day realities.
