The Center for Renewable Energy Advanced Technological Education (CREATE) is hosting a 90-minute online workshop designed to introduce faculty and industry to material and labs developed to teach learning outcomes associated with the Human Machine Interfaces. While this material uses a solar contextual example, the material has well defined course learning outcomes and can easily be embedded into existing energy, manufacturing, and process control curriculum. Thus, fostering interest in alternative energy without significant design changes to your program. Plus, learn how to add your PV system to growing  database of solar PV systems on the CREATE SCADA platform.

The many ongoing changes in automotive development are creating significant challenges in terms of ensuring high reliability and quality user experiences. Unfortunately, these challenges have the potential to break the system before its end-of-life. 

In this free, 60-minute webinar, Tuxera's Bernd Niedermeier examines today's software and hardware development challenges and identifies ways to mitigate the associated risks. 

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Understand the current challenges within a changing automotive ecosystem of collaborating software development teams across OEMs, Tier-1s, and Tier-2s
  • Learn how some OEMs are growing their software development teams beyond 10,000 engineers and redefining the Tier-1 role towards a provider of hardware and runtime environments
  • Discover the risks associated with separate hardware and software development and how to mitigate those issues using flash memory and software development as an illustrative example
  • Learn how Tuxera solutions can improve reliability and user experience in the sophisticated automotive projects of today and tomorrow – while also helping to reduce costs and risks

As development of automated driving system (ADS)-operated vehicles (AVs) progresses, it’s essential for operational safety to be quantified with well-defined metrics. An established set of operational safety assessment (OSA) metrics is needed as a starting point to quantify the level of risk associated with AVs on the road. An important SAE standard (Recommended Practice J3237) currently under development is intended for this purpose, providing a set of OSA metrics for industry to use as part of the quantification of operational safety competency.
This 60-minute Webinar focuses on the need for OSA metrics for AVs, starting with an introduction to the SAE J3237 document as well as how its included metrics will fit into an overall OSA methodology and safety case framework. This will be followed by a panel discussion on various aspects of OSA metrics, including the test methodology to emulate real-world driving scenes in the lab to verify the ADS and minimize driving test risks.
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.

Join presenters for a free webinar to learn how to use the solar design software Helioscope.  Helioscope uses a web based interface to create 3D models for shade analysis as well as helps to create professional proposals.  This webinar will explore ways to use the software in the classroom for students to do solar shading analysis.  Sample lesson plans will be posted on the CREATE website.  Instructions to get an extended trial of the Helioscope software for instructors and students will also be shared. 

Community colleges increasingly recognize that promoting students’ economic upward mobility is central to their mission.  Ensuring that guided pathways lead to jobs and careers providing livable, family-supporting wages is the task addressed in this workshop moderated by Kay McClenney, Senior Advisor to the President & CEO of AACC, with contributions by exemplar college leaders and expert partners.

Accessing Higher Ground focuses on the implementation and benefits of:

  • Accessible media, Universal Design and Assistive Technology in the university, business and public setting;
  • Legal and policy issues, including ADA and 508 compliance;
  • The creation of accessible media and information resources, including Web pages and library resources.

For institutions of Higher Education:

  • there is a strong focus on campus accommodation, Universal Design and curriculum accessibility.

For businesses and other audiences:

  • there are numerous sessions on best practices for web design, reaching untapped audiences through accessible design, and compliance with existing and anticipated Section 508 and ADA stipulations.

A student’s successful quest for economic upward mobility almost never ends with a community college credential.   Building clear, efficient program pathways to university transfer, along with strong advising to support them, can produce dramatic improvements in transfer outcomes and equity. Jo-Carol Fabianke, a Pathways coach and retired Vice Chancellor at the Alamo Colleges, will moderate a discussion with senior leaders from community colleges leading the way in this work.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to grow in relevance in the automotive industry.

In this free, 60-minute webinar, experts from Continental, IBM, and Zeiss present a general introduction to the technology and explain how to leverage it to predict upcoming road conditions. The experts will also explain how to turn data sources like weather forecasts into relevant information for drivers and vehicles.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • What is AI, and how does Machine Learning work?
  • Use case: how AI is used to predict upcoming road conditions reliably
  • The role of weather forecast data and other factors impacting the road conditions

To cope with the complexity of new technologies in today’s increasingly connected and electrified cars, stakeholders utilize virtual testing and validation software when carrying out the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) development process.

In this free, 60-minute webinar, AVL experts explain how virtual MiL and SiL integration environments can replace traditional vehicle integration and HiL tests. The experts also discuss how software verification, system optimization and functional safety tests can be performed in a consistent and open development process, from software system design to large-scale virtual validation in the cloud.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • It’s all virtual: from software specification to ECU integration and validation
  • The importance of having a virtual ECU available in the MiL and SiL environment
  • Functional safety tests performed in a virtual open-loop environment
  • High fidelity, real-time simulation models enabling closed-loop virtual validation
