The course provides students with a deeper insight into the functional principles of advanced sensor systems in cars, methods of signal processing in sensors and explains how to use them in vehicle subsystems. It also deals with distributed vehicle systems for real-time control and methods of their testing. Theoretical lectures are complemented by practical laboratory teaching with real elements (ECUs, sensors) of modern vehicles.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Vehicle distributed control systems, requirements, structure, functions.

2. Sensors of autonomous vehicles - overview, radar

3. Sensors of autonomous vehicles - lidar, ultrasonic sensors, cameras

4. Special sensors (rain sensor…)

5. Vehicle Networks (CAN FD)

6. Vehicle networks (LIN, FlexRay)

7. Communication planning and scheduling

8. Automotive Ethernet, Audio Video bridging

9. Time Sensitive Networks, AUTOSAR

10. Design and testing of vehicle electronic systems

11. Model-driven design, Model-based testing.

12. HIL, SIL, methods of test prioritization

13. Vehicle communication with the outside environment (V2X)

14. Security aspects of communication technologies

Syllabus of tutorials:

Laboratory exercises will be focused on the practical acquisition of theoretical knowledge. They will require homework in the form of self-study and subsequent elaboration of a protocol evaluating the measured or otherwise obtained results, their compliance with theoretical assumptions and justifying any differences.

Study Objective:

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the functional principles and methods of using advanced sensor systems in cars and to teach them the practical implementation of related algorithms for signal processing from sensors. Next goal is to explain in detail the functional principles of vehicle distributed systems for real-time control and methods of their design (planning, scheduling). The last goal is to provide an overview of methods for testing vehicle distributed systems, especially at the integration testing level.
