Discussion and Conclusions

  • B.T. Fijalkowski
Part of the Intelligent Systems, Control and Automation: Science and Engineering book series (ISCA, volume 47)


In this chapter, literature searches have been performed at the databases of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Automotive industry, universities, institutes and automotive consultant companies perform R&D work. One major conclusion is that papers published by automotive consultants, for example, AVL or Ricardo, are often torn between the desire to publish and protect own and customers interests. Many results may not be published at all since the R&D work is performed within automotive companies.
