Learning Outcomes

The main objective of this module is to improve the technical knowledge in the area of vehicular networks, and in particular, students will gain a deeper understanding of specific technologies, protocols, and architectures. Students will have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of specific communication technologies (in-car bus systems like CAN, FlexRay, Ethernet; as well as inter-vehicle communication system like DSRC, C-V2X, etc.). This course will also provide a possibility to improve the knowledge of application requirements looking at heard real-time communication for safety applications and scalability issues for cooperative awareness. Additionally, during the labs, students will have the opportunity to study selected technologies or technology-oriented problems in hands-on exercises.


Product innovation of the modern automotive industry is increasingly relying on electronics and communication systems. Young professionals are expected to have specialized knowledge in the fields of electronics, software, and network technologies. This course teaches important concepts from these domains, covering in-car bus systems (electronic control units, modern bus systems, safety requirements), vehicle-to-everything communication (communication technologies, network architectures, privacy and security), as well as cooperative driving solutions (advanced driver assistance systems, platooning, interaction with vulnerable road users).
