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 ...
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 ...
A SIMPLIFIED MODEL FOR EVALUATING TIRE WEAR DURING CONCEPTUAL DESIGN
(KOREAN SOC AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERS-KSAESEOUL, 2012)
In the field of vehicle dynamics, commercial software can aid the designer during the conceptual and detailed design phases. Simulations using these tools can quickly provide specific design metrics, such as yaw and lateral ...
