SAE, CATARC launch historic standards

cooperation agreement

SAE International and China’s Automotive Technology and Research Center

(CATARC) have agreed to a joint cooperation on key technical standards issues

related to clean-vehicle technologies and safety.

The memo of understanding (MOU), signed April 25 at SAE Automotive

Headquarters in Troy, MI, will serve as a master operating agreement for cooperation

in technology standards for the two organizations and their constituents.

The agreement focuses on various key technical standards development areas

including battery safety and testing for EVs, hybrids, and plug-in hybrids, and

functional safety. It is expected to lead to tangible cooperative

development programs.

“It demonstrates SAE’s and CATARC’s collective resolve to

tackle some of the most pressing issues of safe, green, and

connected vehicles facing us today,” said David Schutt, SAE

International CEO.

“CATARC’s authoritative position and technical capability in

China, combined with the global expertise, speed and rigor of

SAE’s standards development process creates a robust platform

for substantive advancements in this new automotive era,” said

Schutt. “We look forward to the new levels of technical exchange

this will bring and the resulting progress in meeting global

industry needs.”

Standards on stranded energy in development

Adapted from an article previously published in “Automotive Engineering International Online”

As the electric vehicle industry continues to evolve, one of its

focus areas is stranded energy – the residual charge or stored

energy left in a battery after an automobile accident that

cannot be directly accessed but still poses a potential shock or

fire hazard.

SAE International heading DOE-funded interoperability project for

electric vehicles

SAE International is assisting in the management of an

interoperability project, funded by the U.S. Department of

Energy, for plug-in electric vehicles. As part of the project,

SAE will solicit the input of OEMs and electric vehicle supply

equipment manufacturers (ESVE) to develop industry

standards and testing procedures for plug-in electric vehicles

and charging stations.

As manufacturers seek greater acceptance of plug-in vehicles,

they face the challenges of creating a reliable, easy-to-use

infrastructure for recharging and uniform testing procedures.

These standards and procedures will increase public confidence

and acceptance of plug-in electric vehicles by ensuring that

the vehicles are able to accept a charge from charging stations

manufactured by multiple manufacturers.

SAE is performing the work under contract with ECOtality,

which has been contracted by the Department of Energy to

address advanced vehicle technologies.

“This is an essential step toward overcoming one of the hurdles

in the area of electric vehicle acceptance,” said Keith Wilson,

Technical Project Manager for SAE International. “The public

needs convenience of use, reliability and safety. Once uniform

standards have been developed for recharging stations, we will

have helped to address some of the current concerns about

electric vehicle charging.”

As with most new technologies, testing procedures are largely

internal – conducted by OEMs and EVSE manufacturers. The

interoperability project will result in uniform standards and

testing procedures for wide-spread industry use.

“Once the SAE J2953 Interoperability Technical Committee

completes the development of uniform standards and testing

procedures, the likelihood of interoperability problems will

decrease dramatically,” Wilson said. “The industry understands

the value of successfully completing this next step. That is why

we have the support of both OEM and EVSE manufacturers

for this important project. Simply put, it’s critical to the future

success of electric vehicles and their widespread acceptance by

the public.”

The uniform testing procedures will be developed for SAE

International’s standard, “J1953/2: Test Procedures for the Plug-

In Electric Vehicle (PEV) Interoperability with Electric Vehicle

Supply Equipment (EVSE).” OEMs, EVSE manufacturers and

other parties interested in participating in the interoperability

project should contact Keith Wilson via email at kwilson@sae.org.

While several potential solutions exist for stranded energy,

there is no standardized method for discharging damaged or

used batteries, according to Rich Byczek, Global Technical Lead,

Electric Vehicle & Energy Storage, Intertek, a global testing

and certification company at the forefront of stranded energy

standards development and testing.

The SAE International Battery Standards Fuel Gauge Committee

is currently developing “SAE J3009: Stranded Energy – Reporting

and Extraction from Vehicle Electrochemical Storage Systems.”

In addition, the SAE Battery Field Discharge and Disconnect

Committee is working to develop a standard method and

interface for the field discharge of live batteries. The development

of such standards is critical for several reasons, said Byczek.

“Without diagnostic capabilities, the state of the battery

is unknown,” he said. “Charge left in a battery after an

automobile accident poses great risk to secondary responders

including tow truck operators, dealerships and vehicle

repair shops. These responders need to have a standardized

protocol for accessing the internals of the battery and safely

discharging it.”

Currently, he said, there are two potential solutions for dealing

with stranded energy. The “suitcase tester” combines the

efforts of both the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety

Administration) and SAE committees. This solution would

require all automakers to accept a standardized battery high

voltage (HV) port that could be accessed by a single discharge

Engineering Aids from SAE

SAE provides products that support testing procedures set forth in SAE

standards, Recommended Practices, Information Reports, and other SAE

documents including the OSCAR H-Point Machine, which is used in the

design of seating and interior packages and in conjunction with SAE J 826

(rev. 1995), FMVSS regulations, and ISO standards—making it the required

design and auditing tool for current production.

Also available is the newly designed HPM II H-Point Machine, which

includes enhancements over the OSCAR H-Point machine for use in

advance design applications.

SAE is developing standards on stranded energy within an electric

vehicle battery, which poses a risk to first responders at the site of a

crash involving an electric vehicle.

tool. All tow truck operators would be able to use this tool to

examine the status of the battery and remove stranded energy

before proceeding with vehicle towing.

The second potential solution is an automatic self-discharge

system. In the event of an automobile accident and the

automatic disconnection of the vehicle’s HV system, the battery

would automatically self-discharge.

“Neither of these solutions is without issue,” said Byczek, “but

both are an important step toward a standardized stranded

energy solution. As members of the EV industry continue to

work toward ensuring the safety of secondary responders,

EV manufacturers must prepare for a new wave of standards

and the new testing and certification requirements that

accompany them.”

Hydrogen fueling infrastructure standard to be updated

Adapted from an article previously published in “Automotive Engineering International Online”

An update of ”SAE International J2601: Fueling Protocols for

Light Duty Gaseous Hydrogen Surface Vehicles,” is being

developed by the Fuel Cell Standards Committee.

Jesse Schneider, Chair of SAE’s J2601 Working Group on

Hydrogen Fueling Protocol, gave an update on the standard

(originally issued in 2010) during a presentation on hydrogen

fueling standardization at the SAE 2013 World Congress in April.

“J2601 has been validated in the field, worldwide, successfully for

three years, and we are using these experiences and laboratory

testing to standardize J2601 in 2013,” he said.

The update to J2601, created by a multinational team of

automakers, fuel providers, and government entities working

toward a common goal of making a harmonized world

hydrogen fueling protocol, will help the implementation of the

first phase of fuel cell vehicle commercial deployment in 2015.

A number of hydrogen stations worldwide have been built in

accordance with J2601. The effectiveness of J2601 gives a 3- to

5-minute fueling time, while giving fuel cell vehicles a range of

greater than 300 mi (500 km), Schneider said.

SAE J2601 won this year’s SAE Environmental Engineering for

Transportation Award (E2T) that Schneider accepted on behalf

of the team on April 16.

MAC Refrigerant Blend Cooperative Research Project issues white paper

on low GWP blended refrigerants

The SAE International MAC Refrigerant Blend Cooperative

Research Program (MRB CRP), comprised of a group of

leading global vehicle OEMs plus Tier One suppliers, has

continued its assessment of the operating, technical and

safety performance of low GWP blended refrigerants

(AC5 and AC6) developed by Mexichem, and based upon


The MRB CRP team is now sharing a technical White Paper,

“Development and Evaluation of AC5 and AC6 Refrigerants

for MAC Applications,” about these blends. The White

Paper, available at http://www.sae.org/standardsdev/

tsb/cooperative/mrb-ac6_white_paper.pdf, is based

upon information previously reported at the SAE Thermal

Management System Symposium in October 2012, and

more recently updated at UNEP Round Table on New

Technology in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning held in

Milan on 7 June 2013.

The team continues its work on Phase III tasks described

in the White Paper which will be completed in the third

quarter of 2013 and presented at the 2013 SAE Thermal

Management System Symposium in October.

Sponsors of the MRB CRP include Behr, Bosch, Chrysler,

Cinetic Filling, Daimler, Denso, Doowon, General Motors,

Halla Visteon Climate Control, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover,

Mexichem, Nissan, PSA, Renault, SAIC Motors, Sanden,

Schrader International, TEXA, and Volvo Cars.

New MAC Database activity follows recent update to SAE J2911

The January 2013 revision of “SAE J2911: Procedure for

Certification That Requirements For Mobile Air Conditioning

System Components, Service Equipment and Service

Technician Training Meet SAE J Standards” has resulted in

the necessity for additional components and equipment

to be registered and certified in SAE International’s MAC

Conformance Database.

The conformance program assures users of MAC components

and equipment (as well as technician training) that the

manufacturers and providers are following and meeting the

performance criteria set by SAE standards.

The revised J2911 document also noted that equipment that

was previously labeled as “approved” by SAE had a 90-day

grandfather period, which expired May 1, after which that

equipment needed to be registered in the database. As a result

of this, nearly 20 additional companies have now registered in

the database.

Additionally, a new process is in place in the database by which

a company can now challenge a certification if it believes a

conformance claim by another entity is not correct. Following

a process outlined in the recent revision to J2911, SAE will

note that the challenge has been issued, alert the challenged

manufacturer or provider, and request and present a response.

SAE cooperative research project publishes final report on R-1234yf

The SAE International Cooperative Research Project

(CRP1234-4) team has published a final report confirming

that R-1234yf is safe to use in automotive direct expansion

air conditioning systems.

As previously reported, the estimated overall risk of

vehicle fire exposure attributed to use of R-1234yf is

conservatively estimated at 3 x 10-12 events per vehicle

operating hour. This is nearly six orders of magnitude

less than the current risk of vehicle fires due to all causes

(approximately 1 x 10-6 per vehicle operating hour) and

also well below other risks accepted by the general public.

All OEMs in the new CRP have indicated agreement with

these conclusions. The members are: Chrysler/Fiat, Ford,

General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover,

Mazda, PSA, Renault and Toyota.

Finding common ground among Automotive, Aerospace, and Commercial Vehicle

electronics - Q&A with Jim Buczkowski

The convergence of electronics technologies across the

transportation sectors, and with the consumer electronics

industry, brings challenges and opportunities to product

and standards development. Jim Buczkowski, SAE’s new

Cross-Industry Standards Advisor for Vehicle Electronics &

Innovation Integration, recently spoke with SAE Magazines

Senior Editor Lindsay Brooke about the profound changes taking

place. Buczkowski is a Ford Motor Co.’s Director of Electrical

and Electronics Systems and a Henry Ford Technical Fellow. The

following Q&A was edited for length; the entire interview can be

read at aei-online.com.

Q: Where is the common ground between Automotive,

Aerospace, and Commercial Vehicle electronics going


The common point is the consumer. Electronics are allowing the

consumer to blend all the facets of their life, whether it’s in the

car, in an aircraft, at home, and in other places. The consumer

electronics industry tends to lead in terms of technology.

While they don’t have the risks, regulations, and the testing

rigor that Automotive and Aerospace have to deal with—things

like electromagnetic interference, for example— they set the

expectations for the kinds of experiences customers want, no

matter where they are.

The industry sectors have a stake in working more closely and

effectively together so we can provide solutions for consumers

to use portable devices more seamlessly between their various


Q: Looking at the common HMI issues among light vehicles,

aircraft, and trucks and heavy equipment, can those various

industries teach each other about minimizing operator


Yes, and there are different aspects of it, too. In aircraft there

is a lot of training required before a person can get behind

the ‘stick’ and in heavy equipment, too. But we accept the

challenge: People want a lot of capability, but they want it very

simple and intuitive. I don’t think those two are in conflict with

each other. We have learning systems that are getting smarter

and algorithms that are getting better all the time. It is possible

to use technology to help us have very adaptable systems

that can be adjusted to match the circumstances and your

capabilities. We just have more work to do to really figure these

out and refine them. It’s not a question of just eliminating a lot

of features and functionality in order to minimize distractions.

Q: How might engineers in the three industry sectors

collaborate on this?

There is a lot starting on the far end of

the research side. There is a lot of work

and opportunity in terms of human

performance and understanding of

cognitive loading, among other areas.

There are still a lot of unknowns. There

are certainly opportunities in workload

management and operator fatigue. In

the aircraft industry, they have to deal

with pilot fatigue.

Jim Buczkowski

Q: Ford is a member of the GENIVI

alliance. What are the implications of a broad adoption of an

in-vehicle infotainment open-source platform?

It’s a complex subject. I can argue both sides of the equation

but what’s important to us is to really focus on where we can

differentiate for our customers in terms of the experiences we

create and the value they see in those experiences that are

associated with Ford. So things like operating systems and

drivers, all the stuff that’s buried behind the scene, customers

don’t care about. An OS, for example, is just not going to be a

differentiator for a customer. What’s important is what we build

on top of these enablers and infrastructure. In the end people

are going to compare us on the experiences we bring to the car,

not the technology we use.

Q: What’s going on in Silicon Valley? Ford, like other OEMs,

has a facility there to allow your scientists and electronics

engineers more freedom of thought and collaboration, so to


Silicon Valley is really a hotbed for innovation, along with some

other regions of the world such as Israel and more recently, St.

Petersburg, with strong innovation cultures. This is a source of

opportunity for us, to establish more collaborative relationships

with technology providers. Certainly we’ve got to take it to

the step of robustness that’s appropriate in the vehicle. But

the ability to quickly tap into these start-ups that are trying

out ideas and moving them forward very quickly is really


Q: Are Standards part of that learning opportunity?

Yes. There are certain standards in the consumer electronics

business—USB and WiFi for example—that we in automotive

don’t have to completely reinvent, as long as they’re applied to

certain areas of the vehicle that are connecting to consumerelectronics

related products. For example, do we need to have

a special design USB standard that’s ‘automotive grade’ for

hooking up to a device that just meets the consumer standard?

...continued from previous page

Maybe some of the existing automotive standards need

only small changes to make them much more usable in the

auto industry. On the other side, the creators of consumer

electronics standards didn’t have any automotive input. So

there is opportunity on the edges and in the overlaps to come

up with better solutions by working together.

Q: Autonomous-vehicle development is gaining greater

industry and public focus. What role should SAE be playing in

this space?

That’s a complicated question. Automated driving is emerging

very quickly, as sensor-data fusion capability increases. A

lot of areas need to be worked on in terms of specification

requirements, particularly around testing and validation. There

are some ISO and other standards that help define safe systems

that are important. But a lot of work is needed in testing and

Autonomous vehicle standards focus of SAE-sponsored session at AUVSI conference

SAE International organized and sponsored a panel session

at the “AUVSI (Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems

International) Unmanned Systems 2013” conference in

Washington, D.C. in August.

The panel, titled “Autonomous Vehicles in the Ground Vehicle

Sector: Business Sustainability and Standards Development”

was moderated by Paul Perrone, Chair of SAE’s On-Road

Automated Vehicle Standards Committee and Founder/CEO

of Perrone Robotics, Inc., and Greg Muha, SAE International

Commercial Vehicle and Defense Sector Lead, Industry

Relations and Business Development.

The session began with an overview of the safety and efficiency

improvements that can result from the use of autonomous

technologies in the commercial vehicle sector, and how OEMs

validation that will build confidence in fully automated driving

before we can give it the ‘thumbs-up’ to go to production.

Q: In terms of Electronics standards, what are the key areas

the industry can collaborate on?

Interoperability is always very important. Cars are no longer

in isolation; we have to constantly consider V2V and V2I

communication. Our products need to talk to our competitors’

products, as well as to the surrounding infrastructure around

the world. While we have to work through proprietary issues,

standards will allow us to share across the industry. But it’s a

lot more than just a bunch of logical engineers getting together

and saying ‘this is the way it’s going to be.’ It will take a broad

understanding of regional needs around the world. The challenge

is to agree on something quickly.

will apply these technologies in product development in order

to sell their products well into the future. This was followed by a

panel discussion looking at the future of standards development,

including current and future needs for standards for ground

vehicle automated vehicles.

Panelists included: Tim Johnson, Director, Office of Crash

Avoidance Research and Electronics Safety, National Highway

Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA); Anthony Levandowski,

Engineering Manager, Google; Dr. Josh Switkes, Founder and

CEO, Peloton Technology, Inc.; and Barbara Wendling, Safety

Affairs and Vehicle Testing, Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

New standard, subcommittee from Green Technology Steering Committee

SAE International J2965: Glossary of Terms in Use in Green

Innovation and Sustainable Practices in the Automotive

Industry,” was issued by the Green Technology Steering

Committee in June.

The standard develops terminology and definitions specifically

for the automotive industry that defines greener and more

sustainable materials and practices. The document provides

information and context for how and where the terms are used

in the automotive sector.

The steering committee was established by the SAE Motor

Vehicle Council to serve as a guiding body for consensus

standards and activities in the sustainability and green

technology arenas in the automotive sector.

SAE International/IEEE CyberSecurity for the transportation industry meeting

SAE international paired with IEEE to develop the CyberSecurity

for the Transportation Industry Meeting that was held on

September 23, 2013 at the Palais des congrés de Montréal in

Montreal, Quebec.

This one-day technical symposium addressed critical issues

surrounding the security in the networking of current and

future vehicles. No particular style of vehicle was discussed,

, as this broad spectrum covers anything from manned to

unmanned vehicles, whether they move on land or in the air.

The meeting was attended by academic experts and leaders in

the cybersecurity industry, which, paired with skilled members

of the automotive, aerospace, rail, and commercial vehicle

industries worked to improve and solve issues that are plaguing

each of the industries.

An economical pathway for joint venture research:

the Cooperative Research Program of SAE

Cooperative research ventures serve to bring more minds to the challenges and issues faced by industry.

The result is a more robust project than each participating organization could complete independently. The

pooling of financial resources also affords each participant more efficient use of their research budgets

and eliminates duplication of efforts. Whether moving forward on the development of fuel cell standards…

researching alternative refrigerants…or developing a database of human body measurements to foster

ergonomic designs, SAE’s Cooperative Research Program can assist your company in its collaborative

research needs.

Earlier this year, the committee formed a subcommittee

on sustainable manufacturing, for the purpose of sharing

information and best practices to improve environmental

performance by reducing the environmental impacts of

transportation products and manufacturing processes. This

subcommittee has recently begun work on three projects:

a pallet-size materials information standard; an information

report on landfill-free attainment best practices; and a

report on best practices for post-consumer recycled resin for

automotive practices.

If you are interested in contributing to this group’s efforts,

please contact Pat Ebejer at pebejer@sae.org.

The meeting addressed many issues, but a few primary issues

were discussed. First and foremost, many are concerned with

the legitimacy of cybersecurity risks and how to decipher

between real and fictitious threats. Naturally, companies are

concerned about the pertinence of cybersecurity on their own

products or services. And, taking it a bit further, the conference

discussed the common cybersecurity issues that intersect

between industries.

The importance of addressing these issues has never been

more important due to the recent growth in cyber threats in

transportation. This has caused concern for both stakeholders

and consumers, which makes it a pressing matter for the

entire market.

SAE s New Energy Vehicle Forum in Shanghai Explains China Opportunities for

EV/PHEV/HEV & Alternative Powertrain Suppliers

Major focuses of the SAE International 2013 New Energy Vehicle

Forum, Nov. 12-13, in Shanghai, China, are the partnership/

collaborative and financial opportunities available in China

for companies with near-commercialization technologies,

components and systems for electrified vehicles.

North American and European vehicle sales are projected to

remain relatively stagnant - constraining commercialization

opportunities for many new and potential entrants into

the EV/PHEV/HEV supply chain. China’s market, however,

continues as the world’s automotive growth market. And

China’s commitment to new energy vehicles, CleanTech and

CO2 reduction, along with its need to develop indigenous

engineering and technology capabilities, has resulted in a new

round of strengthened government incentives to support and

encourage opportunities for advanced/alternative powertrain

suppliers through cross-border partnerships and collaboration.

The Forum is designed in part for “new” entrants into the

electrified vehicle supplier base as well as companies interested

in finding low cost alternatives for commercializing innovative

EV technologies in China. The Forum’s plenary session,

“Strategic Approaches to NEV (New Energy Vehicle) and

Advanced/Alternative Powertrain Development” features an

in-depth discussion of China’s Energy Saving and New Energy

Vehicle Automotive Industry Plan 2012 – 2020” which outlines

the government’s incentives; the current status and needs of

China’s domestic electrified vehicle technology suppliers; and

a contrasting examination of technology development and

deployment in the U.S. and other regions.

A featured speaker in the plenary is Bill Russo, President and

CEO, Synergistics and Senior Advisor, Booz & Company who

will present “The Circuitous Path to Electrification of China’s

Automotive Industry.”

Following the plenary are two independent presentation

tracks. The technology track, “Overcoming Technical Barriers

to EV Adoption” addresses topics in EV/NEV Charging and

Infrastructure; energy management approaches to powertrain

integration; and optimal EV/NEV battery operation, control

and testing. The business development track, “Developing

China’s NEV Supplier Base: Cross-Border Partnership and

Collaborative Opportunities” addresses successful partnership

and collaborative approaches for building China’s NEV supplier

base; finance/equity and investment sources and mechanisms;

and services to facilitate cross-border partnerships.

In the business development track, key legal and regulatory

advice will be provided by China-based law firms involved in

guiding numerous public and private equity, cross-border,

arrangements in China. Omario S. Kanji, Partner, Price Cao PRC

Lawyers will present “Risks and Rewards: Balancing Technology

Transfer and Market Access” and Edward Lehman of Lehman,

Lee & Xu, China Lawyers will present “Successful Approaches

to Negotiation and Proper Handling of IP, Patents and Trade

Secrets.” In addition, case studies of successful public/private

equity joint ventures and technical cooperation agreements will

be examined.

last few years.

“We’ve really made headway in improving relationships

between these agencies and SAE,” he said. “We have frank,

A 29-year member of SAE International, Keller is also pleased

about the improved communications between the MVC and

SAE’s standards committees.

“We’ve expanded the communication between MVC and other

parts of SAE’s standards activities,” he explained, citing an

increased number of liaison members to the MVC. “We asked

them what their needs were, and they wanted to know what we

were doing. They all have a direct connection with us now.”

In addition to the expansion of the council by two members

(adding Nissan and Magna International), Keller said that

another significant accomplishment over the last two years is

the reorganization of the way the MVC is structured in terms of

standards activities.

“We now have 18 or 20 people with a direct line to us,” he said.

“Our overall goal is to deliver relevant, responsive standards for

the mobility sector, and direct communication enables that to

happen more quickly.”

Gain a competitive advantage. Impact your bottom line.

Invest in standards.

Standards. The workhorse documents that commonize practices, processes, and products throughout the ground vehicle

industry are also paramount to the advancement of technology. Standards documents are more than the practices of

today. They account for history and anticipate the future of technology, regulation, and business. The direct benefits

of standards are simple in concept but extraordinary in their global impact toward ever-safer, cleaner, more efficient

worldwide transportation.

Technical standards enable and enhance:

• consistent and clear expectations for product performance and reliability

• regulatory compliance

• consistent product quality

• compatibility and interoperability

• more efficient procurement

Standardization also:

• lowers trade barriers

• lowers purchasing costs

• decreases design time

• promotes innovation

• increases new technology speed to market

Because industry can rely on standards for globally harmonized solutions to common issues, individual companies can

devote more time and resources to advance their proprietary technology. In this way, standards help foster competition,

which advances the collective technology of industry and in turn, creates the need for new and revised standards. This has

been the cycle for ground vehicle standards solutions.

And, at the heart of those solutions is SAE International, the recognized leader in mobility engineering for over 100 years.

It plays the central role in developing North American automotive standards and a key role in bringing US documents to

the global standards table, working hand-in-hand with the global community to advance industry.

While participation in the standards development process helps the advancement of the industry it can also contribute to

the advancement of your company and personal career.

Corporate Benefits

• Input into the direction of the standards

• Competitive intelligence through advance knowledge of standard direction

• Advance warning of pending regulations and influence over the technical basis of the regulation

• Insight into the competitive environment

• Product liability protections

• Strong relationships with customers and suppliers

• Association with the leading society for advancing mobility technology

Individual Benefits

• Professional development from continuous working contact with peers

• Peer recognition for advancing your industry’s sectors technologies

• Excellent networking and learning opportunities from product developers/users around

the world

• Discover emerging technologies

• Contribute to the industry’s body of technical knowledge
