Advanced Technologies

Our members are engaged in research and development of a full range of advanced technologies for vehicles. Continuing to develop the most fuel-efficient internal combustion engines is a top near-term priority. These technologies include the use of turbochargers with down-sized engines, cylinder deactivation during cruise modes, start-stop starter/generator systems to avoid idling, gasoline direct injection to more precisely meter fuel, and more efficient transmissions.

At the unveiling of the updated federal guidance for automated driving systems, guests (myself included) could walk through a tech pavilion where the products of brilliant computer, electrical and mechanical engineering were on display.   Elsewhere on that Michigan campus, hardware and systems undergo constant testing and refinement in vehicles under simulated real-world conditions.   And that’s an apt metaphor for the challenge we face in realizing the benefits of automated vehicles.
