Learning outcomes:
This lecture course covers more than just data acquisition and processing in automotive systems and goes beyond functions such as ESP and blind spot monitoring. Current research work will be examined to show how cars can exchange data and how so-called ‘data fusion’ can provide new interpretations of vehicle data, such as hazard detection. One of the areas is linking sensor data to generate information about the state of the road surface or visibility conditions.
Students will learn about the currently established information transfer channels (C2C: car-to-car; C2I: car-to-infrastructure). After completing this course of lectures, students will be able to view an automobile as an application and to develop new car-centred services for the automotive sector.
