Learning objectives
After completion, students can:
  • Analyze the integrative and systemic character of vehicle-system designs for selected cases using systems approach.
  • Apply the concepts of model-driven systems engineering.
  • Identify the resulting problems for these cases, propose applicable solutions, and (optionally) motivate the approaches that were taken.
  • Apply relevant information from literature.
  • Analyze/, apply and evaluate (innovative) approaches.
  • Formulate directions for innovationinnovative solutions.
  • Define and execute a project plan.
  • Apply rules of academic writing in their own work.
Content
A vehicle system can be viewed from four main technological perspectives:
  1. Fuel-economy.
  2. Emissions.
  3. Performance, such as acceleration and maximum speed.
  4. Comfort, such as vehicle dynamics and acoustic resonance, and safety, both passive (crumple zones) and dynamic (airbags).

Because these perspectives have multiple cross-links and are strongly interdependent, vehicle-system design therefore typically requires trade-offs between system attributes based on design-space exploration and sensitivity analysis. This project work provides an initial orientation on the inherent integrative and systemic character of vehicle-system design and research by means of selected case studies. Given a specific topic and/or problem statement, students investigate the state-of-practice in industry, and the state-of-the art as well as the state-of-research as described in the literature. To that end, they address requirements, specifications, and solutions in terms of system design or architecture, and formulate potential future directions and research opportunities. Project results are recorded in papers, models, reports and by means of presentations to the project owner, students and staff.
