Taking a look at the A-Z listers of flying cars

Taking a look at the A-Z listers of flying cars
Remember the days when people were dreaming of flying cars? Science-fiction films painted the vehicles out to be incredible futuristic, invinsible, handy creations, but now they are a reality, they may not be how everyone necessarily expected them to be. First of all, the world is nowhere near ready for flying cars, but they appear to be here to stay.

University of Waterloo use MapleSim in approach to tyre modelling

University of Waterloo use MapleSim in approach to tyre modelling
A critical component in vehicle design is the tyres. To save time and money in the design and development of new vehicles, automotive manufacturers typically use models to simulate the dynamic relationship between tyres and road surfaces. If possible, a tyre model must accurately simulate the dynamics of the system and allow designers to vary its parameters, and simulations must also execute quickly.

Partnership accelerates robust design optimisation

Customers will be able to accelerate the next-gen of high-performance computing, mobile and automotive products thanks to a new partnership between ANSYS and Synopsys that will tightly integrate ANSYS' power integrity and reliability signoff technologies with Synopsys' physical implementation solution for in-design usage. Developers of innovative, cost-effective and reliable smart products need to quickly optimise, validate and signoff their designs.

Project to improve efficiency of next-gen gasoline engines

Project to improve efficiency of next-gen gasoline engines
While powertrain electrification offers significant opportunities to reduce vehicle emissions in the urban environment, the gasoline engine is likely to continue to play a significant role in passenger cars – both in conventional and hybrid powertrains – for many years to come. This is particularly the case for mid- to premium-sized passenger cars that are used for longer-distance journeys.

Printed electronics revolutionise vehicle manufacturing

Printed electronics revolutionise vehicle manufacturing
With the advance of printed and organic electronic components, vehicle designers now have previously unimagined possibilities which enable a higher level of sustainability and also help to reduce the automotive industry’s manufacturing costs. This is the conclusion reached by this year’s LOPEC Panel Discussion, which took place on 29th March 2017, as part of the International Exhibition and Conference for Printed Electronics in Munich, Germany.

A different dimension to pit lane engineering

A different dimension to pit lane engineering
This Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix will see McLaren adopt a slightly different approach to providing parts to its Formula 1 cars. The Woking-based racing team are planning to 3D print parts at trackside, which it believes will give the team an advantage if they need to make last minute changes.
