« Buick to unveil Velite Concept PHEV at Guangzhou show | Main | Daimler extends stationary energy storage business to US » General Motors demonstrated eight safety applications for its latest intelligent and connected vehicle (ICV) technology for the first time in China at the National Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Pilot Zone in Shanghai, which opened in June. GM has been supporting the development of connected vehicle technologies for more than a decade in the US. The company highlighted six vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) safety applications, including Intersection Movement Assist, and Electronic Emergency Brake Light and Control Loss Warning enabled by V2V technology. It also introduced two newly developed vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) safety applications: Red Light Violation Warning and Reduced Speed Zone Warning. China has nine megacities with populations above 10 million—more than any other country. The development of ICV technology and systems is expected to address their challenges, including pollution, traffic congestion and road accidents, as well as create additional investment opportunities, revenue and jobs in related businesses. It is estimated that by 2030, about half of all vehicles sold will be highly autonomous and 15% will be fully autonomous. In dense urban areas, electric vehicle penetration could reach 50%. ICV applications require a complete set of standards and a security network for interoperability. GM, Tsinghua University and Chang’an Auto have been leading the development of China’s V2X application layer standard with the support of SAE-China and C-ITS. The first version will be published by the end of this year. Last week at the 2016 SAE-China Congress & Exhibition in Shanghai, General Motors teamed up with the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), Tsinghua University, Chang’an Auto, Yanfeng Visteon and Shanghai International Auto City to demonstrate the interoperability of the emerging China connected vehicle (V2X) application layer standard for the first time. (Earlier post.) GM is also one of the authors of the China Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Road Map, which was released last week at the 2016 SAE-China Congress & Exhibition. It provides a guideline for the research and development activities of manufacturers and future policy development by the government. We now have ICV technologies along with the capability to bring them to the market—and do it quickly. However, no one company or one organization has all the answers. It will require the industry to continue perfecting the technology together with government support to maximize technology accessibility and the creation of standard guidelines. GM announced earlier that Super Cruise, a highway driving automation technology that will enable hands-free driving even in stop-and-go traffic, will be introduced in China shortly after it becomes available next year in the Cadillac CT6 in the US.

« Volkswagen unveils Atlas; new MQB-based 7-seat SUV; first VW Digital Cockpit in US | Main | ARPA-E launches PNDIODES program to boost power electronics work » At the 2016 SAE-China Congress & Exhibition from October 26-28 in Shanghai, General Motors teamed up with the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), Tsinghua University, Chang’an Auto, Yanfeng Visteon and Shanghai International Auto City to demonstrate the interoperability of the emerging China connected vehicle (V2X) application layer standard for the first time. A complete set of communication standards is necessary for underpinning an intelligent transportation system (ITS) using connected vehicles as a key component. GM, Tsinghua University and Chang’an Auto are leading a working group for the development of the V2X application layer and application data-exchange service standard with the support of SAE-China and C-ITS (China ITS Industry Alliance). The goal of the working group is to standardize V2X message formats agnostic to lower-layer communication technology. The WG is using a message set dictionary similar to SAE J2735 as the basis, taking into account unique traffic characteristics in China. The working group initially completed a definition and demand analysis of the applications, and is now working to define the required message set dictionary and data exchange standards. The required message set dictionary defines the content, format and coding methods for data exchange at the application layer. The data exchange standards stipulate time, frequency, data requirements and interface definition for data exchange. Through the demonstration, the working group improved and verified the required message set dictionary and data exchange standards at the V2X application layer. In addition, it generated important reference data to bolster China’s further research on intelligent and connected vehicles (ICVs) and pave the way for their future deployment. The demonstration included the following safety applications: Blind Spot/Lane Change Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Intersection Movement Assist and Special Vehicle Avoid Notification. In a paper published earlier this year (“Global Harmonization Of Connected Vehicle Communication Standards”), the Michigan Department of Transportation and the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) noted that connected vehicle standards in China are lagging behind the rapid market growth driven by global auto manufactures and domestic telecommunication service providers. China has set aside spectrum (5.795-5.815GHz) for ITS applications - mainly for ETC, traveler information systems, traffic operation, and fleet management.

An online identification algorithm for multiple model based on minimum entropy clustering was investigated. The number of local models and corresponding weights was calculated by the entropy based fuzzy subtractive clustering approach, and the regularity degree of the local system was considered along with the clustering process. Parameters of local models could be estimated online by the weighted recursive least square method. The waste heat recovery Organic Rankine Cycles system was used to demonstrate the algorithm. The result shows the identified multi-model not only can reach an accuracy and reliability identification result, but also has a stronger self-adaptability for uncertain external disturbances. © 2016, The Editorial Board of Journal of System Simulation.

The study analyzes the dosimetric variation due to the misalignment of the device under test (DUT) during numerically evaluation of specific absorption rate (SAR). The novelty of the research is to discuss the individual effect of the six misalignment directions to the SAR variation. In this work, five DUT models are generated. Finite-difference time-domain method is applied according to the specification of IEC 62704. The results indicate that the different misalignment directions have different impacts on the SAR variation. The finding reveals that it may be necessary to assign different weight factors to different misalignment directions in evaluating the uncertainty. © 2015 IEEE.

In order to improve the accuracy of sense-through-foliage target recognition, a new recognition method based on sparse representation-based adaptive feature extraction and hybrid particle swarm optimization (HPSO)-optimized wavelet twin support vector machine (WTSVM) is proposed in this paper. First, an adaptive feature extraction approach based on sparse representation is applied to extract the target features from the measured radar echo waveforms, the target feature set is constructed by sparse coefficients that contain most target information. Then, a new recognition method based optimized WTSVM is developed to perform target recognition. Twin SVM (TSVM) is a powerful tool in the field of machine learning, but the kernel and parameters selection problem still affects the performance of TSVM directly. A novel HPSO is developed in this study to determine the optimal parameters for WTSVM with the highest accuracy and generalization ability. As a hybridization strategy, local search is integrated in the PSO algorithm to further refine the performance of individuals and accelerate their convergence toward the global optimality. Finally, the performance of the proposed method is verified by experiments taken in the forest, and the results conform the improved accuracy of target recognition. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
