In this edition of ATR, we take a look at some key developments that are happening in the world of automotive engine development.
Need For Machine Learning Based Simulator Approach To ADAS Validation
The global ADAS market is growing at a rapid pace and is expected to reach $ 60 bn by 2020 at a CAGR of 23 %, according to a report by Allied Market Research  with Europe and North America being the key geographies driving this growth. In order to make way for this rapid growth, investments are being made by various constituents of the value chain such as silicon vendors, OEMs, and sensor manufacturers along others to capture a pie of this market. This is resulting in innovations in chip design, artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning, radar, and computer vision-based solutions, which are key to realising vehicle autonomy.
'Additive Manufacturing Presents An Opportunity To Disrupt The Supply Chain'
Simulation software for engineering has been an important area for product developers, especially in current times, with reduced product development cycles and pressure to get designs right the first time over. One of the leading providers of engineering simulation software solutions is ANSYS, which claims to have been promoting engineering simulation for the 21st century. In a recently interview, Dr Ajei Gopal, President and CEO, ANSYS Inc, told us about the broader industry view on pervasive engineering, additive manufacturing, automotive megatrends defining future of mobility and industry standards.
Turbocharging, Supercharging To Help With Engine Downsizing, Emissions Compliance
Due to increasingly stringent emissions norms and the need for improved fuel efficiency, one option that auto motive OEMs are increasingly going in for is engine downsizing. Fewer cylinders and smaller engine capacities help OEMs reduce emissions and achieve better fuel economy. However, to ensure that smaller engines are still able to deliver the kind of power and performance that customers expect, manufacturers often use forced induction – turbocharging, supercharging or even both. Here, we take a look at some of the latest advancements in forced induction and their implications for manufacturers, suppliers and customers.
Efficient Batteries, Better BMS Needed For Future E2ws
Between 2013 to 2016, the global market for electric scooters and motorcycles grew at an average CAGR of around 3.3 %, going from $ 7,800 mn to $ 8,600 mn in that period. Due to the numerous challenges – the weight disadvantage that current batteries have, limited range, inadequate charging infrastructure and slow buyer acceptance – growth has indeed been slow. However, globally, government authorities are now beginning to push hard on promoting electric mobility, which is expected to increase the pace of high-quality battery-powered two wheelers in the near future. Analysts expect the global market for electric two-wheelers to reach the $ 10,000 million mark by 2021. Here, we take a look at the state of existing e-2W tech and possible future directions.
Gearing Up For A Sustainable Move Towards E-mobility
In India, the move towards electric mobility has recently been underlined by Niti Aayog’s announcement to go all-electric by 2030. Complementing this initiative is the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric vehicles (FAME) scheme, which intends to offer significant financial and infrastructure-related incentives to the automobile industry in having an operational eco-system in place for complete electrification.
HMSI's Expansion At Narsapura To Address Global Demands
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt Ltd (HMSI) sold its very first two-wheeler in India in June, 2001, in the city of Bangalore, Karnataka. The two-wheeler sold was the Activa automatic scooter, which has now the mainstay for HMSI, currently holding the position of the top-selling two-wheeler in India. The company began its journey in India with its first factory in Gurgaon, with a single production line, which has now grown to four manufacturing facilities with 11 production lines across four states. The company currently has a total of over 31 mn customers across the country, and is seeing growing demand for its products, especially its flagship model, the Activa.
