Automobile Transmission Testing System

Posted by Kari Grosser on Mar 11, 2017 11:10:00 AM

Project

A vehicle's actual application conditions, such as startup, idle park, low speed or high speed driving, speed increase, speed decrease, climbing, and reversing are extremely complex. They require the vehicle's driving force and speed to change within a large range. The range of output torque and speed change produced by the piston engines that are widely adopted at present is smaller. In order to adapt to the constantly changing driving conditions and to enable the engine to work under favorable conditions (higher power with lower fuel consumption), a gearbox is added into the transmission system. The automobile gearbox is one of the highest-tech products among the components for a vehicle. One of its more crucial aspects is online testing, which aims to simulate the car's actual operating conditions while on the production line to test for transmission related indicators.

Maximize Virtual Networks Efficiency and Performance

Posted by Kari Grosser on Dec 27, 2016 10:30:00 AM

Cooperating with Ethernet solution leader Intel, Advantech would like to introduce our Ethernet Network Interface Controllers (NICs), which are connected using PCI Express (PCIe) interfaces and enable 1 Gb and 10 Gb Ethernet based network connectivity to make it easier to access multiple networks. With increasing demand on network resources due to large file transfer and increase in network users, a cost-effective solution with more bandwidth is needed for server-based applications and workstations in government, educational, corporate, health care, and business environments.

Multi-angle Automated Optical Inspection Solution for Automobile Assembly Factory

Posted by Kari Grosser on Sep 21, 2016 10:00:00 AM

Project Introduction

To guarantee a product's quality before it leaves a factory, product verification is fundamental, but it is also a repetitive and tedious job and mistakes are easily made. As a result, Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) systems are becoming the quality control method of choice to replace manual checks. Although AOI systems are capable of far more swiftly and accurately handling many of the visual checks previously performed by manual operators, the most intensive vision system has been designed to inspect the objects in fixed positions; this lack of flexibility narrows down the scope of the inspection.

High-Speed Data Acquisition Clutch Performance

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jun 22, 2016 11:00:00 AM

The clutch pedal is an important component within a vehicle's transmission system and directly affects the performance of the vehicle. The industry standard QC/T 27-2004 is typically used to perform the overall function as well as clutch durability and reliability characteristic tests. However, the price to perform this test is very high, because high data accuracy requirements and the ultra-stringent data reliability standards. Maintenance for such high precision equipment is also much more difficult. Therefore, a portable and low cost clutch feature analyses system that can be used in real vehicle test environments is essential. This system can measure and analyze the clutch pedal mechanics and location characteristics, time-domain characteristics, and separation actions, thus resolving the shortcomings of the traditional systems that can only perform high-precision tests, and its simultaneous multi-parameter real vehicle test capability significantly improve test efficiency.
