Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
30 class hours (= 22.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 90 hours (equivalent to 3 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 67.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Module content:
This course will focus on trends, technology and system networking in and outside of vehicles.
The electrification of the automobile occupies a strong position in the global market. The transition from the combustion engine to pure electric driving have led to a wide range of new systems and information networks in vehicles.
This course will deal with the following questions:
* What are the main differences between a vehicle with an internal combustion engine and a hybrid or electric car and what effects do these differences have on the function development?
* How do electronic systems and networks work in an electric car?
* Are there special functional requirements for assistance systems in electric vehicles?
* What do the data networks look like in the future vehicles and what requirements do they have to meet?
1. General information on market trends and their technical requirements
  * User behavior
  * Political influences
2. General technical principles
  * Gasoline engines
  * Diesel engines
  * Hybrid vehicles
  * Electric vehicles
3. The architecture of electric vehicles
  * Drive systems
  * Chassis & safety systems
  * Vehicle cabin systems
  * High-voltage architectures
4. Driver assistance systems
  * Overview of functionalities and networks
  * Limits of driver assistance systems
5. Communication systems inside and outside vehicles
  * ITS and electric vehicles
  * Data networks
6. Functional safety
  * General requirements for security and privacy
  * Redundancies
  * Requirements for assistance and security systems
  * Road vehicles - Functional safety ISO 26262
