Vehicle Dynamics and Control

This module involves modelling and analysis of vehicle dynamics including drag, tyre friction and vibration and the effect of these on the vehicle perfomance and driver experience. A number of electronic dynamic assist strategies are explored and the student will develop the skills to evaluate the effectiveness of such strategies (e.g. braking control, stability control, self-steering response).
