Automotive Engineering Training
Automotive engineering, a branch of vehicle engineering, is one of the most sophisticated sectors in engineering and involves design, manufacturing, modification and maintenance of transportation vehicles.
With the advent of technology, almost every day, a new automotive product is introduced in the market and therefore, those who study automotive engineering have to keep themselves updated with the current norms of the industry.
Automotive engineering incorporates elements of mechanical, electrical, electronic, software, and safety engineering as applied to the design, manufacture and operation of motorcycles, automobiles, and trucks and their respective engineering subsystems.
The automotive engineering field is research -intensive and involves direct application of mathematical models and formulas. The study of automotive engineering is to design, develop, fabricate, and test vehicles or vehicle components from the concept stage to production stage. Production, development, and manufacturing are the three major functions in this field.
Automotive engineers work on the aesthetics and technical performance of these vehicles and, increasingly, the electronics and software involved with modern vehicles.
Perhaps more than any other area of vehicle engineering, the evolution of technology is having a substantial influence on automotive engineering. For example, the growth of digital technology is making it possible for automobiles to implement autonomous driving and accident prevention, among other features successfully.
Autonomous driving is especially on the precipice of changing the face of the automobile industry by eliminating the need for a human behind the wheel. Audi, for instance, already has a cruise control system with a stop and function that implements this feature. The cruise control system works by using 30 control sensors all over the vehicle to provide information about the vehicle’s surroundings to the processor.
The cruise control system can detect the vehicle traveling ahead of your automobile and automatically adjust the traveling speed from 0 to 155 miles per hour. The system employs two radar sensors in the front of the vehicle that allows the control system to maneuver vehicles.
Other important technological advances include augmented reality dashboards and the fine tuning of electric vehicles to help lower planetary carbon emissions as well as cope with spiraling fuel prices.
Innovative automotive engineering is also producing hybrid vehicles and cars running on alternate fuels.
Machine learning and predictive technology are also expected to have a significant impact on the AI capabilities of vehicles in the automotive industry.
Analysts contend that this technology is capable of providing a highly personal driving experience. You can set up the application preferences and the infotainment system of your vehicle by using algorithms.
Every day, automobiles are becoming more capable of understanding voice commands and connecting with smart devices where sensors can also provide notifications to the owner of the vehicle if there is a need for service.
Truth is, the future of automotive engineering looks pretty amazing. Advances in automotive engineering are just now scratching the surface on innovations and connectivity among cars, people and our environment.
