The course is an introduction to the wide knowledge dealing about the vehicle, its specifications, performances, market diffusion, social-economical implications and finally its evolution linked to the technological developments. The course deals the knowledge of the vehicle system, of its components, and of the driving criteria necessary for the proper design of a vehicle and for a proper installation of the components. The course will provide students with the basic notions and general information, which will prove useful during the following courses. In the subsequent years and according to the selected study plan, many items will be more deeply investigated.

In the subsequent years and according to the selected study plan, many items will be more deeply investigated.
The expected learning outcome is the knowledge about the following items: • the motor vehicle diffusion • the main economic aspects related to the automotive industry • the main regulations about the environmental and the safety aspects • the main components of a vehicle (body, chassis, engines and transmissions), their evolution along the years and their operations.

Basic notions of mathematic, physics and chemistry are required. These notions are normally provided within the high-school programs.

After brief historical notes about the birth and the development up to today of the car industry, the subsequent chapters exposes a summary of aspects relating to the car diffusion in the world, the socio-economic impacts and issues related to safety and environment. Subsequently, the different lectures illustrate the operation and the features of the main components (body, chassis, engines and transmissions) of the vehicles. At the end, further lectures deal with the materials and the technologies used for the vehicle manufacturing. Innovative solutions are also described with specific reference to the alternative power-train development. More in detail, the programme of the course is organized in the following topics: 1 Overview of manufacturers and motor vehicle diffusion 2 Environmental and safety 3 Vehicle body history 4 Vehicle body 5 Chassis history 6 Chassis 7 Engine history 8 Engine 9 Drive train 10 Alternative drive system 11 Materials and technologies for manufacturing

The reference book of the course is “The Motor Car – Past, Present and Future” written by G. Genta, L. Morello, F. Cavallino, F. Filtri and edited by Springer. The material used during the lectures (mainly the presentations) are supplied to the students, through the Politecnico website. When it is not possible, the topics discussed during the lecturers can be found on the reference book.

Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula);
Exam: Written test;
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam: Written test;
The examination is a written test composed of 5 (five) open questions. The score of each question is 6 (six) points. The final score of the test is the sum of the scores of each question. Consequently, the maximum score of the exam is 30 (thirty). The minimum score to pass the exam is 18 (eighteen). The questions of the test cover all the topics of the course. The duration of the test is 2 (two) hours. No materials like books, class notes, handouts, forms, can be used during the examination.
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
