10.    Course Goals (acquired competencies):  This course gives an introductory overview of electronic systems in a modern car. It covers a description components, system architecture and operation. The course also considers the modelling and simulation of these systems. At the end of the course, students should be able  to know the basics principles, components and operation of electronics systems in a car, as well as to model and simulate the performance of these systems.

11.    Course Syllabus: Introduction to the role of electronics in a modern car. Introduction to automotive sensors and instrumentation, sensor electronics and techniques, overview of sensor measurements, sensor linearization and characterization, sensor classification, signals and systems, sensor product selection guide. Sensors for pressure, position, flow, temperature, humidity, speed, acceleration, oxygen, torque, light, distance and level. Sensors interfacing. Principles of actuation and control, DC motors, stepper motors, relays and solenoids, hydraulic and pneumatic. Sensors and interfacing techniques for engine control, adaptive cruise control, braking control, traction control, steering, stability. Sensors for intelligent transport systems. Sensors for occupant safety. Systems of engine management and driving assistance: electronic fuel injection, automobile starting systems, charging systems and alternators, ignition systems, lighting systems, gauge and indicator circuits, anti block system and anti slip system. Communications between systems, CAN bus. The digital vehicle. Intelligent vehicle systems.

12.    Learning methods:  Lectures supported by presentations, examples solving auditory exercises, practical laboratory exercises, preparation and presentation of individual project/seminar assignments, homework.

20.  Forms of assessment Examination comprises two midterm exams (max 120 min), tests during the classes, and a laboratory exercises test at the end of semester. After successful completion of these tests, an oral examination may be required (max 60 min). The final mark is based on the points collected from all mentioned tests and the class activity. Student project is also required due before the end of the lectures. When mid term exams are not successfully passed, they are replaced by a written exam (max 120 min) during the exam sessions, with other requirements and rules remaining the same. Use of textbooks, any other notes, mobile phones, or other electronic devices, except the calculator, are not allowed
