Visible to the public Harnessing the Automotive Infoverse

Like today's autonomous vehicle prototypes, vehicles in the future will have rich sensors to map and identify objects in the environment. For example, many autonomous vehicle prototypes today come with lineofsight depth perception sensors like 3D cameras. These 3D sensors are used for improving vehicular safety in autonomous driving, but have fundamentally limited visibility due to occlusions, sensing range, and extreme weather and lighting conditions.

To improve the current capabilities of automotive active safety control systems (ASCS) one needs to take into account the interactions between driver/vehicle/ASCS/environment. To achieve this goal, we are proposing a novel approach to collect data from a sensor-equipped vehicle. Motion Sensors (Inertial Measurement Units) are placed on various locations in the car, particularly around the driver's operational environment and moving car components, such as steering wheel, seat, pedals, as well as critical car components (e.g. motor, suspensions).

As an indispensable link of the life-cycle of AM, end-part quality control in Cyber-Physical Additive Manufacturing Systems (CPAMS) is made difficult by enormous differences in product designs/varieties. Statistical monitoring of additive manufacturing (AM) processes faces major challenge due to the nature of one-of-a-kind manufacturing. This posters puts forth a prescriptive SPC scheme to monitor shape deformation from shape to shape. Only a limited number of test shapes are required to establish control limits.
