CAR Workshop

@KReSIT 1st Dec. 2003

Core group on automotive r d car
Core-group on Automotive R&D (CAR)

  • Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India.

  • Constituted by Dr.R. Chidambaram, Principal Scientific Adviser to Govt. of India in April 2003

  • Comprises of senior people from Indian automobile and auto-component makers, academia.

  • Goal:

    • prepare roadmap for cooperative R&D programme to support the Indian Automobile Industry

    • identify areas where intellectual property protection will enhance the position of industry.

Six expert panels
Six Expert-Panels

  • Embedded (Control) Systems

  • Telematics

  • Hydrogen & Alternate Energy Technologies

  • Advanced Materials

  • Low-cost Safety

  • Recyclability of auto systems & components


  • Leading to articulation of “roadmap” for cooperative R&D in the Indian Automotive Sector.

  • CAR will:

    • Create and update list of technologies critical to development of world class automotive industry.

    • Create and update list of experts for "Technology Board"

    • Develop "position paper" describing critical technology  

    • Draw up prioritized list of R&D programs .

Embedded Systems Panel

  • Vehicle Software Architecture:

    • sensors and actuators, black-boxes and sub-systems & communication

    • Modeling/architecture of these elements

    • Interface characteristics, protocols, etc.

    • Re-use, modular design, flexibility

    • Safety and predictability

  • Automobile sub-systems

    • Sub-systems like X-by-wire, navigation, automatic suspension, etc.

  • Vehicle Software and Tools:

    • Simulators/ test-beds to test/ evaluate systems

    • Tools for rapid prototyping, verifying, exploring hardware/software co-design.

Embedded systems
Embedded Systems

  • Real-time Systems

    • Real-time mechanisms for distributed control and communication network

    • Bus design and provisioning and protocol issues.

  • Power Electronics & Drives Group

    • Software interface specifications for electric propulsion and energy systems

    • Specification/design of electric propulsion systems

    • Software interface to the vehicle software system.

  • Dependability/Safety/Graceful degradation

    • Dependability and related functional requirements

    • Graceful degradation

    • Tools for verification of software and testing.

Embedded systems1
Embedded Systems

  • Communication Network

    • Design and build network hardware/software + messaging system for prototype vehicle.

  • Automobile Curriculum Group:

    • Develop curricula for CSE/EE courses promoting automobile sector as user of embedded systems

    • Prepares students for career in the automobile sector.

Pre competitive medium long term projects
Pre-competitive medium/long term projects

  • > three years in duration

  • Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) systems

    • Motor control (control and power)

    • System control in conjunction with ECU

    • Battery charge control and health monitor

    • Vehicle body electronics

    • Data flow protocols

  • Multidisciplinary activity

    • Needs modeling/ simulation tools, embedded controllers, power-electronics systems, work on IC engine mapping and control, vehicle systems modeling and optimization.

  • Need algorithm-based virtual model that is processor-neutral and we need to work towards an open source component library. Industry partners will be free to use these components to shorten their product development cycles by 50-70% of current estimates
