Emissions regulamentation, homologation cycles, engine calibration, upcoming technologies.
Each year new strict regulations and homologations cycles have been released and in order to fulfill these rules, new technologies appeared as a solution for better engine efficiency and reduction of overall emissions; however, only cost efficient technologies are applied on large scale production, those technologies have to be studied because it represents most of the world fleet. New technologies in tandem with more restrictive regulations increase the complexity over the engine calibration process. Calibration is the key to engine control and mistakes can lead to consequences that represent safety risks, environmental treats and enormous costs for vehicle manufactures. As the companies thrive for a shorter development time to compete on the automotive market, the calibration process complexity demands time, being more expensive and challenging over time. Arguments are given in order to explain the necessity for an engine calibration specialist system capable of fully representing the knowledge e cross domains evolved on the process while dealing with cross requirements and necessary interoperability to help the addition of new technologies.
