AUTE 4010U – Vehicle Dynamics and Control


Total vehicle dynamics; dynamical properties of vehicle parts; the longitudinal, lateral and vertical dynamics; mathematical models of vehicles to predict their road performance; selection of important powertrain parameters (e.g. transmission characteristics) to coordinate the requirements of tractive performance and fuel economy; suppression of forces, moments, and movements under external road disturbances; steady-state handling and vehicle directional behaviour; transient response and stability in small disturbance maneuvers; nonlinear effects in tire modelling, classification and analysis of suspension systems; ride quality; driving stability; important vehicle standards and safety regulations and standards examined from vehicle dynamic point of view; vehicle control factors such as driver modelling, occupant comfort and driver interfaces; introduction to active suspension systems, traction control, and yawmoment control; introduction to advanced vehicle control systems for intelligent vehicle-highway systems.
