Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

After completing the course, students will acquire knowledge of the structure, properties and applications of sensors and sensor setpoint field of automotive electronic systems. This knowledge is necessary to understand the complex features and operating principles of these systems. Classes will continuously monitor the current trend of technology for sensing physical quantities when operating vehicles.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


The course focuses on the technology of automotive sensors, sensor setpoints circuits for processing output signals of these components, principles of conservation and utilization of necessary mathematical tools. Recited the theory of the structure, properties and applications of electronic chassis systems (chassis), on-board systems (PTS) and drive systems (POWERTRAIN), including specific subsystems.
