Coconut shell and torrefied wood are bio-sourced and renewable materials that can be used as fillers in various polymer matrices. Torrefied wood material can be produced from numerous cellulose based materials, such as wood, sunflower hulls, flax shive, hemp and oat hulls. These bio-fillers would replace talc and glass bubbles which are not a renewable resource. Additionally, the implementation of torrefied wood and coconut would reduce the carbon footprint and improve sustainability of Hyundai and Kia vehicles, improving customer perception of our product line. In this study, coconut and torrefied wood filled polypropylene properties are tested for a HVAC Case application. Copyright © 2014 SAE International.

Many routing strategies have been proposed to reduce the implementation complexity of multihop sensor networks. Specifically, a combination of routing scheme and cooperative variety by considering a realistic channel model is considered and the energy constraints is applied to the existing routing strategies. The proposed strategy, by considering energy parameters, balances energy consumption among relays considerably. Simulation results indicate that the End-to-End outage of presented energy balancing method is less than the ad-hoc approach and the useful lifetime of the network significantly increases. © 2014 IEEE.

Pedestrians A method of locating a charging target device (vehicle) in a parking lot scenario by the evaluation of Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) of the Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) signal and Global Positioning System (GPS) data is proposed in this paper. A metric call Location Image (LI) is defined based on the RSSI received from each charger and the physical location of the parking associated to that charger. The central parking lot processor logs the GPS coordinates and LI received from the vehicle. Each pairing attempt by a vehicle loads a new LI into the central processor's database. Utilizing the LI and the proposed methods the vehicle will achieve expedited charger to system pairing while in the company of multiple chargers. Copyright © 2015 SAE International.

Pedestrians account for a significant ratio of traffic fatalities; as a result, research on methods of reducing vehicle-pedestrian crashes is of importance. In this paper, we describe a system architecture that allows the use of vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) communication as a means of generating situational awareness and eventually predicting hazards and warning drivers and pedestrians. In contrast, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication for safety applications, V2P has not received much attention. One major reason for this lack of attention had been the unavailability of communication mechanisms between pedestrians and vehicles. Recent advances in enabling Wi-Fi and dedicated short range communication (DSRC) based communication using smart-phones is changing this picture. As a result, V2P communication can be considered as a possible solution. In this paper, we first investigate the feasibility of V2P crash avoidance applications, considering the fact that pedestrian movement dynamics, response times, and crash scenarios are different from V2V scenarios. We then propose an architecture for V2P crash avoidance systems. The architecture has vehicle side and pedestrian side applications. Each of them communicates its current state information such as position and time to the other device. Using this information, crash threats can be predicted and an advisory or imminent collision warning will be generated. Finally, we demonstrate and evaluate a developed V2P crash avoidance system based on this architecture. Copyright © 2015 SAE International.
