Initially, the only electric loads encountered in an automobile were for lighting and the starter motor. Today, demands on performance, safety, emissions, comfort, convenience, entertainment, and communications have seen the working-in of seemingly innumerable advanced electronic devices. Consequently, vehicle electric systems require larger capacities and more complex configurations to deal with these demands. Covering applications in conventional, hybrid-electric, and electric vehicles, the Handbook of Automotive Power Electronics and Motor Drives provides a comprehensive reference for automotive electrical systems. This authoritative handbook features contributions from an outstanding international panel of experts from industry and academia, highlighting existing and emerging technologies. Divided into five parts, the Handbook of Automotive Power Electronics and Motor Drives offers an overview of automotive power systems, discusses semiconductor devices, sensors, and other components, explains different power electronic converters, examines electric machines and associated drives, and details various advanced electrical loads as well as battery technology for automobile applications. As we seek to answer the call for safer, more efficient, and lower-emission vehicles from regulators and consumer insistence on better performance, comfort, and entertainment, the technologies outlined in this book are vital for engineering advanced vehicles that will satisfy these criteria.

Effective use of driving simulators requires considerable technical and methodological skill along with considerable background knowledge. Acquiring the requisite knowledge and skills can be extraordinarily time consuming, yet there has been no single convenient and comprehensive source of information on the driving simulation research being conducted around the world. A how-to-do-it resource for researchers and professionals, Handbook of Driving Simulation for Engineering, Medicine, and Psychology brings together discussions of technical issues in driving simulation with broad areas in which driving simulation is now playing a role. The chapters explore technical considerations, methodological issues, special and impaired populations, evaluation of in-vehicle and nomadic devices, and infrastructure evaluations. It examines hardware and software selection, visual database and scenario development, independent subject variables and dependent vehicle, environmental, and psychological variables, statistical and biostatistical analysis, different types of drivers, existing and future key-in vehicle devises, and validation of research. A compilation of the research from more than 100 of the world's top thinkers and practitioners, the book covers basic and advanced technical topics and provides a comprehensive review of the issues related to driving simulation. It describes literally hundreds of different simulation scenarios, provides color photographs of those scenarios, and makes available select videos of the scenarios on an accompanying web site, all of which should prove essential for seasoned researchers and for individuals new to driving simulation.

Handbook of Automotive Design Analysis examines promising approaches to automotive design analysis. The discussions are organized based on the major “technological divisions of motor vehicles: the transmission gearbox and drive line; steering and suspension; and the automobile structure. This handbook is comprised of three chapters; the first of which deals with transmission gearboxes and drive lines. This chapter describes manual-shift gearbox design, synchromesh mechanisms, hydrokinetic automatic gearboxes, drive-line main assemblies, and drive-line losses. The next chapter is about vehicle suspensions and optimum handling performance, with emphasis on two categories of handling of vehicles: steady-state turning (or cornering) and the transient state. The behavior of the steering system, ride parameters, and the design and installation of spring elements are discussed. The third and final chapter focuses on the application of structural design analysis to the automotive structure. After explaining the fundamentals of structural theory in car body design, this book presents the analysis of commercial vehicle body and chassis. Throughout the book, maximum use is made of line-drawings and concise textural presentation to provide the working designer with an easy assimilable account of automotive design analysis. This book will be useful to young automotive engineers and newcomers in automotive design.
