(Springer HeidelbergHeidelberg, 2017)
Road safety: implications for sustainable development in Latin America
Road accidents cause more deaths than homicides in Latin America, nevertheless it is not highlighted as a major concern by media and society. World Health Organization put this issue in high priority by releasing the Decade ...
Straightforward systematic approach for fuel efficiency and emissions assessment in automotive systems
At this time, each major automotive market bares its own standards and test procedures to regulate the vehicle green house gases emissions and, thus, fuel consumption. Hence, much are the ways to evaluate the overall ...
A Kalman-filtering-based Approach for Improving Terrain Mapping in off-road Autonomous Vehicles
The generation of accurate terrain maps while navigating over off-road, irregular terrains is a complex challenge, due to the difficulties in the estimation of the pose of the laser rangefinders, which is required for the ...
Performance of polymeric reinforcements in vehicle structures submitted to frontal impact
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTDABINGDON, 2012)
Preformed structural reinforcements have shown good performance in crash tests, where the great advantage is their weight. These reinforcements are designed with the aim of increasing the rigidity of regions with large ...
Use of nonlinear asymmetrical shock absorber to improve comfort on passenger vehicles
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-03-31)
In this study the behaviour of two different types of shock absorbers, symmetrical (linear) and asymmetrical (nonlinear) is compared for use on passenger vehicles. The analyses use different standard road inputs and include ...
