Course Contents: The course focuses on intelligent systems and services in vehicles to reduce travel time, improve safety and reduce fuel consumption and emissions. The course is aimed at a theoretical and practical understanding of the interaction of intelligent systems and services, driving behaviour and traffic flow characteristics.
The course consists of the following parts:
1: Introduction, classification and functional description of intelligent vehicles
2: Technologies for intelligent vehicles, sensors, communication, state estimation and actuators.
3: Behavioral adaptation to intelligent vehicles, car-following, lane changing, route choice; workload, attention, distraction.
4: Experimental research into behavioural adaptation using a driving simulator.
5: Impacts of intelligent vehicles on traffic efficiency, (surrogate) safety measures, fuel consumption and emission models
6: Experimental research of impacts of intelligent vehicles on traffic flow using traffic flow simulation.
7. Interaction between intelligent vehicles and traffic management systems. Interactive session and actor analysis using a management game.
Study Goals: At the end of the course students are able to give a functional description of intelligent systems and services in vehicles, including the technological components. Students are able to identify the behavioral adaptation to intelligent vehicles and assess the impacts on traffic flow efficiency, safety and fuel consumption and emissions.
Education Method: Interactive lectures
Assessment: Grade exercises and oral examination
