Establishment of Ride Comfort Characteristics of Tractor- Semitrailer Using MATLAB and Simulink
Tractor semitrailers are widely used in the transportation industry for moving heavy-duty goods from one place to another. They operate well over an eight hour range per day, so analysing ride comfort characteristics is paramount for minimizing fatigue and stress for the driver during uptime of the vehicle. ISO 2631-1 serves as a guiding manual for the measurement and defines acceptable criteria for ride comfort characteristics of the vehicle. Tractor- semitrailers pose a major challenge due to mating of the load body on the tractor frame via the fifth wheel coupling mechanism. This independency causes the load body to act as a source of vibration and transmits the force onto the driver seat via the chassis. The location of the fifth wheel coupling is critical for ride comfort characteristics of the vehicle. Furthermore, accurate establishment of ride comfort parameters in the virtual environment saves cost and time developing prototypes and iterating on the physical vehicle. This project thus focuses on the establishing ride comfort parameters on the seat level of a 4x2 heavy tractor- semitrailer. Thus, a detailed 7-degree-of-freedom mathematical model is developed to analyze the characteristics of the vibrations in a virtual environment. The mathematical model is developed using MATLAB® and Simulink® R2019b. Consequently experimentation is carried out on a physical vehicle to obtain acceleration- time domain data by mounting accelerometers on various locations. The vehicle is run on A and B class road profiles to account for random vibrations. The same road vibrations are used as an input to the mathematical model. Similarly, a simulation is done on MATLAB and Simulink and a correlation is established between simulated and actual data using time domain and frequency domain analysis. Furthermore, the data is fitted on the eight-hour curve as per ISO 2631-1. Thus a versatile, parameterized mathematical model for ride comfort analysis of a tractor- semitrailer is developed.

Real-Time Prototyping and Testing for ADAS: Lane Keeping and Following Assist Systems
Lane keeping assist (LKA) and lane following assist (LFA) systems are an important feature of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving (AD). They automatically take action to keep the vehicle in its lane and follow cars at a safe distance. Variations in road and driving conditions must be considered when designing reliable and robust LKA and LFA systems.
Real-time simulation and testing can help verify these systems with simulated driving. We will discuss how to simulate road and other conditions using a photorealistic simulation environment leveraging the Unreal Engine from within Simulink®. Using a multicore Speedgoat system, we simulate the vehicle dynamics and powertrain as well as lane keeping and following with model predictive controls. The vision-based lane detection algorithm is implemented on a Simulink programmable FPGA I/O module from Speedgoat, making it possible to process video data from the Unreal Engine.

Distribution Transformer Monitoring Unit
Owing to their harsh operating conditions, oil-ﬁlled transformers tend to degrade over time and leak oil, which results in failure or reduced life. The main indicators of transformer health are oil level and top oil temperature. Further, being highly optimized for cost, these transformers have very minimal instrumentation. Our solution proposes a scheme to virtually sense the oil level using temperature sensors ﬁtted on the transformer housing. A physics-based model of the transformer enables us to relate the temperature measurements to the amount of oil present in it in real-time. This non-invasive solution can be retroﬁtted on any ONAN transformer and can enable real-time condition monitoring of the asset.
The next step in implementation of our solution was ﬁeld deployment. We exploited the features of the MATLAB Production Server™ to deploy our algorithms to the cloud seamlessly. Prototype IoT devices deployed on individual transformers stream data to the cloud where our algorithm generates signals for predictive maintenance of the respective assets.
Minimizing Production Cost Using MATLAB and Machine Learning
We present a predictive manufacturing solution to reduce manufacturing scrap in their optical manufacturing process. The ingredients here are MATLAB®, Machine Learning and a new piece of automation tech—Robotic Process Automation (software bots). To understand how this ballet of tech creates tangible impact on the company's bottom line, here's a primer on optical fibre manufacturing. STL uses a process called RIC (Rod in Cylinder) to manufacture an optical fibre product from their portfolio. Basically, you put a no. of glass rods (higher refractive index) in a big glass cylinder (lower refractive index) and fuse them together to get a larger glass cylinder called preform. After that you load this preform on top a multi-storey building called draw tower and melt the bottom part in a furnace. What happens is the glass material starts dripping through a very controlled process, you get a very thin strand of optical fibre.
Impact Analysis of Faults in an Electric Vehicle
Our aim is to improve the design margin by providing the electrical signature of a fault on various subsystems dependent in a direct or indirect way. The framework allows us to run iterations on possible combinations of faults at subsystem levels as well as at wire fault levels and use the recorded data for impact analysis of subsystem failures on the entire system. While it increases the number of cases in the failure mode analysis, it results in a significant reduction of the cost and time required for testing. The inputs are taken from an optimized orthogonal matrix generated based on the probability of occurrence of a fault out of the manifold combinations of fault injection possible in the framework. The effect is generated by a high-fidelity comprehensive electric vehicle model that facilitates the injection of these faults and provides data for root cause identification of observed failures, thus making way for future prognostics.
System-Level Simulation Technique for Optimizing Battery Thermal Management System of EV
Electric vehicles are powered by lithium-ion batteries which require an effective but low power consuming battery thermal management system (BTMS). In this presentation we’ll learn about how 1D simulation has been used in MEML to optimise the BTMS. The ease of 1D modelling allows it to be used during concept development and in parameter tuning to choose the best components at its best operating point. The model explained here consists of a driver model, vehicle model, equivalent circuit model, battery box model, and refrigeration cycle model. After validating the model with test data, thermal algorithms have been tested for optimizing energy requirements. In this system model, the battery, cooling circuit, and refrigeration circuit were effectively implemented using Simscape®. The vehicle, driver, and equivalent circuit model were implemented on the Simulink® platform.
Model-Based Development and Commissioning on Industrial Assets
Today, several processes in a typical industrial plant scenario are modelled and simulated in Simulink® to evaluate control and process timings and tuning. However, to be able to deploy and tune with the plant dynamics, engineering and commissioning tools that integrate with the process communication are used. This restricts the design tools such as Simulink to perform parameter sweeps and optimization and in general breaks the model-based development philosophy.
With MathWorks support, we have achieved code generation for industrial asset targets for Siemens' SINAMICS drives. Users are now able to generate model blocks and deploy them to commissioning tools and even get feedback on the performance of the models helpful for parameterization. The latest code-generation techniques using coder descriptors help greater customization and maintainability of the target ﬁles. This talk explains the nuances and experiences of using and integrating MATLAB® and Simulink with industrial tools and assets.
Development of Machine Learning Algorithms for Radar-Based Automotive Applications
Radar's advantage and application in mobility and ADAS are limited to object detection and position estimation. Very limited developments concentrate on object classification based only on radar. This is due to the limitation of a less dense point cloud from radar. At PathPartner we have worked on classification of vulnerable road users based only on radar Data. MATLAB® and Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ have helped us analyze and decide on the most efficient and suitable algorithm for this application. We have developed this algorithm with the toolbox and have implemented it in an embedded platform and verified it in actual test scenarios.
Reinforcement Learning: A Motivation for a Powertrain Control Engineer
In this presentation we would like to present the advantages and challenges of using the deep reinforcement learning for closed loop powertrain control algorithms. The powertrain state feedback control functions have to consider a huge variety of environmental conditions. The way to develop and customize this new generation of control functions will change our traditional system and software process. The use of artificial intelligence and in particular of deep reinforcement learning techniques will speed up the development and improve the performance and contribute to higher efficiency.
Automated Requirements-Based Testing
Applying verification and validation techniques early in the development process enables you to find design errors before they can derail your project. Most system design errors are introduced in the original specification but are not found until the test phase. When engineering teams use models to perform virtual requirement based testing early in a project, they eliminate problems and reduce development time.
In this master class, you will learn how you can apply early verification and validation activities at every stage of the development process to ensure that your design meets the functional requirements and is free from any design errors.
