Company Name: AICON
Website: www.aicon3d.de
Stand: 1114, Hall 1

AICON presents dummy positioning system
When performing a crash test, it is essential that the dummy is seated in the vehicle precisely according to the regulations the test is based on. At Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2011, AICON will present the new MoveInspect DPS optical system, a specialized dummy positioning system that also works as a coordinate measuring machine at the same time. This combination is unique. While conventional articulated arms often lack software dedicated to dummy positioning, the MoveInspect DPS software has been specially developed for this purpose. It controls the 3D position of the dummy relative to the vehicle during the positioning process. The current dummy position is recorded in real time, and is compared to nominal data. With all points on the dummy measured and displayed simultaneously in vehicle coordinates, the technician can quickly put the dummy into its target position. Movements of the vehicle that are caused by the positioning of the dummy are compensated for automatically. At the same time, MoveInspect DPS can be applied for any other coordinate measurement in a measuring volume of up to 5m. During the measurements, the operator can move freely around the object to be measured as there is no connection between sensor and probe.

 

Company Name: ACS Angelantoni Industrie
Website: www.angelantoni.it
Stand: 1320, Hall 1

Battery test chambers
Since 1952 ACS Angelantoni Industrie has been creating environmental test chambers around the world for materials, components, and finished products. ACS’ range of products includes testing chambers for temperature, humidity, thermal shock, corrosion, vibration, sand and dust, solar light; stress screening systems; calorimeters; and systems for specific automotive applications such as airbag, air conditioning, fuel evaporation, and emission testing. Regarding the latest battery trends and research, ACS can today offer new versions of standard and customized chambers specifically designed to test the quality and reliability of batteries. The storage of electrical energy has always posed a technological challenge. Even though there have been significant developments over the past decade, the challenge is still on, with the goalposts being moved continuously by the new needs emerging in various application sectors, such as the necessity for increasingly compact, lightweight batteries for electronic devices and for storing in limited spaces the large quantity of energy required by electric traction. Tests on batteries can generate potentially dangerous situations, since they are carried out by simulating the limit conditions that may occur when there is a transfer of energy from the battery to the electric motor, or during the battery’s fast recharge phase. These situations, in fact, may generate strong overheating or the formation of dangerous atmospheres. To handle and solve these problems, ACS’ chambers are equipped with all the instruments necessary for monitoring potentially dangerous parameters and the following main devices, which are activated to eliminate any risk conditions: smoke sensors, dangerous gas (H2; O2; CO; CO2) sensors, stabilization systems, and flame extinguishing systems. In the electrically isolated test enclosure, and electrically isolated and perforated mounting shelf is also included. The specifically designed perforated shelf ensures both electrical isolation and consistent airflow around the test item. The new battery test chamber range from ACS incorporates CAN bus interfacing to the  battery ECU as a  standard  option, and the chamber software and control system is also designed to interface with Industry standard loading and unloading systems. Optional customer defined isolated power and signal connections for external electrical loading of customer test items within the chamber are also available.

Company Name: IDIADA

Website: www.idiada.com
Stand: 1314, Hall 1

IDIADA to present EV concept
e-born3 is an innovative electric vehicle concept developed with functionality at the center of the process. With this project, Applus IDIADA demonstrates how a complete vehicle development project is managed following the principle of design led by functionality. Vehicle development projects are conducted from the beginning towards functional excellence. At an early stage of development the company’s designers work closely with its homologation, integrated safety, pedestrian protection and aerodynamics engineers to introduce their requirements into designs. Since the e-born3 runs on electric motors located inside the wheels, and there is no engine taking up space at the front, the designers had the freedom to explore new ways of packaging, enabling them to: maximize the available interior space in relation to the vehicle’s footprint and to fit all that interior space inside a stylish, aerodynamic body. The chosen interior layout, featuring a single front driver’s seat, with the passengers in the second and third rows in a face-to-face configuration, lends itself readily to the people-transporter role. The vehicle configuration is designed to meet two primary requirements. The first being the urban family transporter or taxi configuration, the second, with the four rear seats removed, is a typical urban distribution vehicle or craftsman’s van. In order to optimize the energy efficiency of the e-born3, the main volume shapes were analyzed in depth by means of Computational Fluid Dynamics simulation. Additionally, CFD simulation was used to minimize noise sources produced by external vehicle projections. Essential for an electric vehicle, apart from the occupant protection, is the protection of the battery storage compartment. An integrated occupant protection system, good structural integrity, and also a very strong battery retaining system were taken into account. Pedestrian protection is an important consideration for an urban vehicle. The vehicle has an energy-absorbing front part to protect pedestrians in case of accidents. The e-born3 is designed to achieve the maximum rating in all consumer tests, such as NCAP assessments.

Innovative Helical Screw Flow Meter
The measurement of volume flow based on the screw pump principle of the patent pending series RS from VSE Volumentechnik GmbH offers benefits such as a high degree of precision that is mostly independent of viscosity, pulsation-free measurement, lowest pressure losses, short response time due to innovative rotor profile and reduced masses, gentle fluid measurements, and the highest functionality due to intelligent sensor technology. The core objective of the new development was initially to create completely new rotor profiles, which had been adapted to the requirements for running an integrated motor using the latest design methods. These profiles ensure a low-resistance, high-precision measurement with optimally distributed masses that are also reduced by up to 45%. This results in a much better response characteristic – a big advantage over previously available devices. VSE also backs new developments in the area of signal formation. Based on the patented VSI high-definition sensor system, a sensor module was developed that enhances the functionality of the RS flow meter. The sensor itself features two GMR bridges (sin / cos) and is housed in a removable stainless steel cartridge case, together with a signal conditioning and amplifier unit. It can be replaced when necessary without costly adjustment and configuration work. The sensor is adjusted automatically when being replaced. The downstream electronics unit features a high-resolution sin / cos-interpolator, which can increase the resolution in increments up to a factor of 128 while maintaining exactly the same pulse lengths. The unit also has a variety of additional functions that significantly help users with the further processing of RS sensor signals. Among others, it features a programmable signal filter, which is able to offset unwanted, negative pulse sequences and detect and save values that exceed the indicated flow and temperature values. A separate directional signal is available for single-channel evaluations. Functionality can be further increased with other programmable options.
