Spring 19 for programme students

Spring 20 for programme students

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to give students both theoretical and practical experience of different vehicle dynamics control applications in longitudinal, lateral and vertical direction. At the end of the course students will have gained theoretical knowledge and practical experience in three different areas of vehicle dynamics control.

Course main content

The course is a lab based course, meaning that the students will have theorethical sessions followed by practical lab assignments based on the theoretical sessions. There will be three laboratory assignemnts in the course

1. Longitudinal Dynamics, Slip Control (Brake/Traction)

2. Vertical Dynamics, Control of active damping (Sky-hook/Ground-hook)

3. Lateral Dynamics, State estimation (Estimating vehicle side slip)


The course target students in the end of their Master studies from following programs:

- Vehicle Engineering

- Engineering Design

- Engineering Mechanics

- Electric Power Engineering

- Systems, Control and Robotics
