Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Automatic Control, Engineering Mechanics, and familiarity with Matlab/Simulink.

Intended learning outcomes

The course gives basic knowledge of a vehicles longitudinal and lateral dynamics, and the control systems that are used to give the vehicle desirable driving characteristics. After the course the student shall know how to:

  • Exemplify and describe fundamental principles of vehicular dynamics.
  • Describe technical solutions and control strategies.
  • Analyse and solve problems within vehicular dynamics.
  • Model, simulate, and evaluate problems within vehicular dynamics.
  • Implement laboratory experiments and present the results in writing.

Course content

  • Vehicle models: Vehicle dynamics including coordinates, chassis, suspension, stability analysis. Quarter-car and two-wheel models.
  • Tire models: Slip, skid and slip angle. Camber and caster angle. Pacejka's Magic formula
  • Vehicle properties: Steady-state handling, transient response and directional stability.
  • Vehicle parameters and states: Methods to estimate e.g. speed, friction forces and side slip.
  • Vehicle control: ABS, TRC and ESP systems. Active differentials and suspensions.
  • Driver and road models: Models for road profiles and driver behaviour.

Teaching and working methods

The course is organized in lectures, problem solving and laboratory experiments.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
