Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

The 2021 IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for Automotive (MetroAutomotive 2021) aims to be a solid reference for the technical community to present and discuss the most recent results of scientific and technological research for the automotive industry, with particular emphasis on applications and new trends.

In this Special Issue, attention is focused on, but not limited to, new technology for metrology assisted production in the automotive industry, sensors and associated signal conditioning for automotive, and calibration methods for electronic tests and measurements for automotive.

The program is designed to gain the interest of a wide group of researchers, operators, and decision makers from metrology and automotive fields, by presenting the most innovative solutions in this field from a scientific and technological point of view. The workshop covers all aspects of the segment focusing on electrical vehicles, connected autonomous cars, and related mobility.

The Special Issue will collect technically-extended versions of papers presented and published at IEEE MetroAutomotive 2021.

This study focuses on the measurement of sub-23 nm particles emitted from a small DI/PFI spark ignition engine through conventional techniques and innovative systems. Measurements were performed with well-known systems, such as the EEPS coupled to a PMP-compliant sample conditioning device. Moreover, a novel instrument developed within the European project Sureal-23, the advanced HM-DMA, capable of operating with a simplified conditioning setup was used. The engine was fueled with ethanol, both pure and in blend at 30% v/v. The effects of fuel on the particle emissions were analyzed at different operating conditions. The results highlighted that a larger fraction of emissions consists of particles smaller than 23 nm, and their number changes according to the fuel, injection strategy and operating condition. A significant effect of the sampling system conditions was observed reveling the inception of nucleation mode particles or the condensation of the volatiles onto existing particles depending on the combination fuel/injection strategy. Different trends were noted at certain operating conditions between the results from the EEPS and the advanced HM-DMA ascribable to the different measurement principle and to the dilution system.
