Learning Outcomes

The aim of this module is to learn the basic theories regarding vehicle-to-x communications, identify and solve interesting control problems arising from the new technology. Students will first understand the vehicle dynamics modeling, control of vehicles as well as basics of the vehicular communication networks. Then, rather than diving into deeper theories, this module aims at applying the theories to interesting real-world scenarios including vehicle platooning, intersection control, etc., on an open source traffic and network simulator. This module openly invites students from multiple engineering domains ranging from electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, transportation engineering, and so on, who are interested in basic theories and use cases of future connected cars. At the end of this module, the students will identify interesting problem of their own, investigate the problem and write a short report.


- Introduction to connected cars concept - Introduction to vehicle dynamics modeling - Vehicular communication basics - Basics of distributed control techniques (performance metrics, stability) - Interplay between communication networks and vehicle fleet control - Platoon control, intersection control - Open source traffic and communication simulator

Requirements for participation and examination

Desirable prerequisites for participation in the courses:

Students can benefit from some basic knowledge on control or programming in general, but there are no strict requirements for taking this course. This course will focus rather on the practical usage scenarios than sophisticated theories. We will provide as much support as possible to guide the students through the contents.
