Automotive and Aerospace Standards The automotive and aerospace industries share many components, requiring parts that can continue functioning properly under the high levels of stress (e.g., heat, vibration, pressure, etc) that are to be expected in, for example, an engine. Beyond that, other materials such as adhesives and sealant are also included. Automotive standards strive to provide interoperability, so that engines manufactured by one company can use fuel from a second and engine oil from a third without issues arising.

Electric Vehicles and Vehicle Electronics

Electric Vehicles and Vehicle Electronics

Electric Vehicles and Vehicle Electronics standards are published by multiple organizations, chief among them ISO, IEC, and SAE. Given the wide range of components that must all work together to provide the desired experience and reliability that automotive manufacturers and consumers alike want in their cars, standardization plays a key role in automotive electronics. With the recent surge in popularity for electric road vehicles like hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in electric vehicles, the standardization of testing procedures and metrics for safety and emissions become vital. Other fields of standardization, such as connectors and electrical disturbances, carry renewed importance with the increasing amounts of electronics in today's cars, electric or not.


Intelligent Transportation Systems

Intelligent Transportation Systems

Transportation standards for controller area networks (CAN), Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), and Traffic and Travel Information (TTI) all seek to provide an interoperable set of devices, sensors, data, and communication protocols in cars and roadways that work together to provide additional functionality such as On Board Diagnostics or traffic monitoring to help relieve congestion.


Fastener and Adhesive Standards

Fastener and Adhesive Standards

Adhesives and Fasteners standards address the test methods, requirements, and use of a variety of adhesives and fasteners. SAE International (SAE) and ASTM International (ASTM) have developed many fasteners and adhesives standards that are applicable to the automotive and aerospace industries.

Fastener standards address the dimensions, testing, and use of fastener materials, washers, screw threads, bolts, nuts, and more. These fastener standards allow hardware product manufacturers and end users to examine and assess fasteners to measure their strength and quality towards safe utilization.

Adhesive standards are helpful in the evaluation and testing of adhesives. These standards address the specifications, test methods, and practices for adhesives and their components.


Automotive Engineering Standards

Automotive Engineering Standards

Automotive standards, covering the design, production, maintenance, and recovery of automobiles of many sorts, provide a measure of uniformity that leads to reliability, interchangeability, and safety, all while still allowing for innovation. With extensive efforts by ISO, ASTM, and SAE, the fields of automotive intelligent transport systems, engine oil, fuel, lubricants, as well as adhesives, sealants, and deadeners are standardized, allowing car manufacturers to design systems that will work with the liquids to be poured into them and the materials applied to them, and for sellers of those products to rely on the car systems their products are meant to be used with to be able to handle it.


SAE Standards for Compressors, Pumps, and Cylinders

SAE Standards for Compressors, Pumps, and Cylinders

Cylinder, pump, and compressor standards address performance, design, safety, and quality requirements for cylinders, pumps, and compressors that are used in aircrafts, cars, and commercial vehicles. These standards seek to optimize the overall quality and performance of cylinders, pumps, and compressors and address important factors and issues that face them. For example: The SAE AIR 1922A-2011 standard addresses and defines factors that affect hydraulic pump life such as the mounting of the hydraulic pump and hydraulic fluid pressure.

SAE International (SAE) has more than 240 Standards Development Committees that collaborate specifically on the development of consensus standards. Several of these committees are specifically focused on developing standards related to cylinders, pumps, and compressors. These committees attempt to improve, upgrade, and maintain uniform and comprehensive standards.
