This module introduces the principles of automated driving.

Professional competences:
The stud The students:
  • Discuss different levels of automated driving (eg. SAE-Level) and the differences
  • Discuss different levels of connected driving and the differences
  • Discuss core-domains of automated vehicles
  • Discuss important technological pillars in the areas sense, plan, and act
  • Discuss transition between different levels of automation
  • Discuss the impact of connected vehicle functions on automated driving
  • Discuss the impact of automated vehicle functions on connected driving
  • Characterise the impact of automated and connected driving on road traffic
  • Characterise the interaction of humans and automated and connected vehicles
  • Design an abstract procedure for the change of different levels of automation
  • Design a rough vehicle architecture for automated and connected drivingents:

Methodological competences:
The students:
  • Analyze complex automated and connected vehicles (-> domains)
