Automotive Software Engineering: Grundlagen, Prozesse, by Jörg Schäuffele, Thomas Zurawka

By Jörg Schäuffele, Thomas Zurawka

Car software program Engineering
Seit Anfang der 1970er Jahre ist die Entwicklung von Kraftfahrzeugen gepragt von einem rasanten Anstieg des Einsatzes von Elektronik und software program. Dieser pattern halt bis heute an und wird getrieben von steigenden Kunden- und Umweltanforderungen. Nahezu alle Funktionen des Fahrzeugs werden inzwischen elektronisch gesteuert, geregelt oder uberwacht.
Die Realisierung von Funktionen durch software program bietet einzigartige Freiheitsgrade beim Entwurf. In der Fahrzeugentwicklung mussen jedoch Randbedingungen wie hohe Zuverlassigkeits- und Sicherheitsanforderungen, lange Produktlebenszyklen, begrenzte Kostenrahmen, kurze Entwicklungszeiten und zunehmende Variantenvielfalt berucksichtigt werden.
In diesem Spannungsfeld steht car software program Engineering. Dieses Fachbuch enthalt die Grundlagen sowie zahlreiche Anregungen und praktische Beispiele zu Prozessen, Methoden und Werkzeugen, die zur sicheren Beherrschbarkeit von elektronischen Systemen und software program im Fahrzeug beitragen. Die four. Auflage wurde hinsichtlich des AUTOSAR-Standards uberarbeitet und aktualisiert.

Der Inhalt
Gesamtsystem Fahrzeug-Fahrer-Umwelt - Grundlagen - Prozesse zur Entwicklung von elektronischen Systemen und software program - Methoden und Werkzeuge fur die Entwicklung, die Produktion und den carrier elektronischer Systeme

Die Zielgruppen
Mitarbeiter von Fahrzeugherstellern und Zulieferern, die sich mit elektronischen Systemen und software program im Fahrzeug beschaftigen.
Studierende der Informatik, der Elektrotechnik oder des Maschinenbaus mit Schwerpunkten automobile software program Engineering, Steuerungs- und Regelungstechnik, Mechatronik oder Fahrzeugtechnik an Universitaten und Fachhochschulen.

High and Mighty: The Dangerous Rise of the SUV by Keith Bradsher

By Keith Bradsher

SUVs have taken over America's roads. advert campaigns advertise them as more secure and "greener" than usual automobiles and straightforward to deal with in undesirable climate. yet little or no concerning the SUV's picture is actual. They poorly guard occupants and inflict awful harm in crashes, they guzzle gas, and they're not easy to control.

Keith Bradsher has been on the vanguard in reporting the calamitous protection and environmental list of SUVs, together with the infamous Ford-Firestone rollover controversy. In excessive and powerful, he strains the checkered heritage of SUVs, displaying how they got here to be labeled no longer as passenger vehicles yet as mild vehicles, that are topic to much less strict rules on defense, fuel mileage, and pollution. He makes a strong case that those autos are even worse than we suspect--for their occupants, for different motorists, for pedestrians and for the planet itself.

In the culture of Unsafe at Any Speed and Fast foodstuff Nation, Bradsher's booklet is a damning exposé of an that places us all in danger, no matter if we realize it or no longer.

Themethodologyfordesigninghigh-performancecompositestructuresisstill evo- ing. The complexity of the reaction of composite fabrics and the dif?culties in predicting the composite fabric homes from the fundamental homes of the c- stituents bring about the necessity for a well-planned and exhaustive try software. The suggested perform to mitigate the technological dangers linked to complicated composite fabrics is to confirm the functionality and sturdiness of the layout in a series of steps often called the construction Block method. The construction Block technique guarantees that price and function targets are met by means of checking out better numbers of smaller, more cost-effective specimens. during this approach, expertise hazards are assessed early within the software. moreover, the data received at a given point of structural complexity is equipped up earlier than progressing to a degree of elevated complexity. reaching substantiation of structural functionality by means of trying out on my own could be p- hibitively dear due to the variety of specimens and elements required to symbolize all fabric structures, loading situations and boundary stipulations. development Block Approachprogramscan in attaining signi?cant price reductionsby se- ing a synergy among checking out and research. The extra the improvement is determined by research, the fewer pricey it turns into. using complicated computational types for the prediction of the mechanical reaction of composite buildings can change a number of the mechanical checks and will signi?cantly decrease the price of designing with composites whereas supplying to the engineers the knowledge essential to in achieving an optimized layout.
