  • give a historical overview of the development of the automobile.
  • to give an overview of the following subjects: structure, safety, tires, chassis, steering, transmission and basic concepts of vehicle dynamics.

Subject of course

After a historical review the physics and dynamcs and furthermore the main modules of a vehicle will be treated. Finally the safety of a vehicle for users will be covered in detail. Main modules are suspension systems, steering, braking systems, clutches and gear systems (including automatc and double clutch gear concepts).

The contents of the lecture are arranged as follows:
