Aluminum Industry Collaborates to Develop Technology Roadmap to Support Automotive Customers

DETROIT, Jan. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Aluminum Association announced today the release of a new technology roadmap that details short-, mid- and long-term research and development (R&D) priorities in support of its automotive customers. The 2022 Roadmap for Automotive Aluminum identifies pathways and prioritizes opportunities for critical collaboration among aluminum suppliers, recyclers, automakers, policymakers, non-governmental organizations and other industry stakeholders to drive innovation throughout the next decade.

“From electric vehicles and connected cars, to autonomous technology and supplier sustainability, the automotive industry is experiencing tectonic shifts in design, propulsion, materials and manufacturability. To meet the moment, the aluminum industry is gearing up to bring to market the most advanced automotive alloys and product designs ever produced,” said Mike Keown, ATG chair and chief executive officer, Commonwealth Rolled Products. “This technology roadmap details where we are today, where we are headed, and specific pathways and priorities that will accelerate technical advances to support automakers as they envision cars and trucks far superior to anything on the road today to meet consumer demands in the next decade, and beyond.”

In an era of rapid electrification, The Aluminum Association brought together industry stakeholders in March 2021 to define and address current challenges, agree on goals and identify technology pathways to achieve those goals within five key areas. As a result, the aluminum industry is committed to:

  • Design Engineering—Partnering with automakers in every step of the iterative vehicle design process by establishing open access resources for design data harmonization across the entire value chain, optimizing material joining processes for efficiency, and improving aluminum component manufacturability for strong and durable future vehicles.
  • New Alloys and Products—Pursuing newer standardized aluminum alloys at higher strength, improved formability/ductility, enhanced fracture toughness and extrudability—all at a lower cost. As such, aluminum suppliers commit to implement expedited testing and qualification processes to help automakers meet constantly evolving consumer preferences and regulatory sustainability requirements.
  • Future Vehicles—Developing even more robust and cost-effective solutions to meet all structural and safety requirements of parts, including battery enclosures. Integration of an aluminum battery box into structures, such as removing the floor pan and using the battery cover instead, could reduce the cost of automotive intelligent vehicles (AIVs).
  • Next-Generation Fabrication Technologies—Embracing the next manufacturing revolution with an overarching goal of fully ushering in Industry 4.0 manufacturing to develop smart aluminum processes with enhanced product capabilities for higher quality components. Through R&D endeavors in the next five to 10 years, aluminum technical leaders will address simulation and data needs, and accommodate more efficient and effective material joining and fabrication techniques.
  • Recycling & Sustainability—Improving sorting and creating more robust recycling infrastructure to enable effective end of life component recovery and reuse, while incorporating design elements that ensure parts can be disassembled and recycled efficiently to help establish the circular economy so vitally needed in transportation.

Aluminum is well positioned to address the increasing call for sustainable manufacturing to decarbonize the transportation sector.

Donation assists Mitchell Tech college students learn new systems to build up coming technology of vehicle experts

Even if they failed to all have regular engines less than the hood.

Students in the class ended up finding a opportunity to attain some fingers-on knowledge in functioning on fashionable vehicles thanks to the long-lasting donation of a 2014 Ford Fusion as very well as the non permanent bank loan of a new Ford Bronco and an electric Ford Mach E4X, two vehicles that symbolize the latest in chopping-edge technological know-how from the American automotive company.

Andrew Hiles, a instructor with the MCTEA automotive software, explained providing the learners publicity to more recent automotive technological know-how is very important to preserve them up to speed on the newest traits in fashionable vehicle structure and fix.

“That’s what we’re going for – newer engineering that can retain these men up to date so when they get finished with substantial school and go on to technical university or they go off to Vern Eide Ford or one more dealership that they are more organized on the electrical side in its place of doing the job on a bunch of carburetors and more mature technologies,” Hiles reported.

CNXMotion Named 2021 Automotive News PACEpilot Innovation to Watch for Brake-to-Steer Technology

GRAND BLANC, Mich., October 08, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CNXMotion has been recognized as a 2021 Automotive News PACEpilot Innovation to Watch for its innovative Brake-to-Steer technology which provides an additional layer of vehicle safety and redundancy by using the electronic brake system to safely steer the vehicle while simultaneously controlling its speed.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20211008005585/en/

“CNXMotion’s technology offers a cost-effective way for automakers to achieve safety needs by leveraging the vehicle’s existing systems, enhancing the steering safety net,” said Greg Katch, General Manager, CNXMotion.

In a fully autonomous vehicle without a physical steering wheel present, Brake-to-Steer can be used as a redundancy strategy to facilitate a safe pull-over if the primary and/or secondary steering systems were unavailable. The function would take over lateral control of the vehicle by selectively applying brake commands to individual wheels while maintaining speed through powertrain control.

Brake-to-Steer can also be used as another layer of redundancy in a Steer-by-Wire system by taking the driver’s input through the steering wheel position and maintaining the lateral control of the vehicle in a similar method described in the fully autonomous use case.

Benefits of Brake-to-Steer

Cost: The Brake-to-Steer technology leverages the vehicle’s existing braking, steering, and propulsion systems. Depending on the vehicle’s architecture, the function itself could also reside on an existing controller, eliminating the cost of any additional hardware.
Flexibility: Not only can the function exist within the existing hardware architecture, Brake-to-Steer can also be used to provide an additional layer of vehicle safety and redundancy on vehicles with Steer-by-Wire all the way to fully automated vehicles without the presence of a steering wheel.
Safety: The cost and flexible Brake-to-Steer technology provides for an early adaptation redundant safety layer that otherwise may not be available to those vehicles in the market today.

CNXMotion is honored to be recognized as a 2021 PACEpilot Innovation to Watch. For more information about CNXMotion’s award-winning technology, visit www.cnxmotion.com.
