2nd call for papers: Total Vehicle Technology

March 18, 2002

Total Vehicle Technology Conference 2002 - 2nd call for papers





Total Vehicle Technology





How do we get the innovation back into vehicle design?





Conference


11th & 12th November 2002


University of Sussex








This is the second call for papers for the Total Vehicle Technology (TVT)


Conference, to be held at the University of Sussex on 11th and 12th


November 2002 and organized by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers,


Automobile Division, Southern Centre. The list of co-sponsors now includes:





GM Fiat Powertrain


The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)


Shoreham Services


TWR


University of Brighton


University of Sussex





The aim of the Total Vehicle Technology Conference is to take a vehicle


wide view of the design process, and to include the “joining technologies”


which are often neglected in conferences. Our aim is to create an


atmosphere in which fundamental question about how we do vehicle design can


be presented and discussed.





We would like to invite papers on subjects that will cut across traditional


boundaries as well as exploring the design issues in the major sub-systems


of the vehicle. Papers will review the state of the art or present new


results:





Crossing the boundaries





Control of hybrid vehicles


Power architectures and their control


Data communications


Car architectures


The use of statistical methods in vehicle development


Strategies for transport


Psychology, ergonomics and driveability


Vehicle dynamics – design and control


Use of materials in new roles – glass, aluminium, magnesium, plastics,


ceramics, nano engineered materials


Energy transfer and storage





The design process





Models of design


Capturing requirements


Innovation processes


Concept cars


Using tools – CAE, QFD, FMEA


The software process and the car


Automating design





Propulsion





IC engines


Powertrain control


Fuel cell systems
