This course aims to give its students a system level knowledge of in-vehicle information systems, of standards and applicability of wireless communication systems, a basic knowledge of geo-localization systems and their performance, as well as of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communication systems applied to connected vehicle services and functions. Vehicles are no longer a purely mechanical systems. Electronic Control Units (ECUs), distributed in the vehicle body, implement a wide range of functions, ranging from vehicle dynamic control (ABS, ASD, ESP,...) to driver assistance and vehicle automation, to entertainment and digital information. In the next years these ECU's will grow in number and complexity, and vehicles will rely on incoming communication services to implement more advanced functions. In this fast changing scenario, it's mandatory for Automotive Engineering students to acquire some basic knowledge on Communication Systems and Networks.

The students, at the end of the course, will have a sufficient knowledge of: - cellular communication systems, up to 5G; - wireless communication systems for Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications; - geo-localization systems (GPS, GALILEO) and their performance; - driving assistance systems (radar, ultra sound, cameras, laser) and their performance; - autonomous driving technologies. They will also be able to combine knowledge from the above mentioned subjects and from previous courses to address technical problems in vehicles of any kind (cars, moving bots, autonomous vehicles, UAV - Unmanned Aerial Vehicles )

There are no specific pre-requirements. However, students need to acquire the basic knowledge on wired communication networks used inside vehicles. This subject is addressed in the "Electronic systems for vehicles" course, whose lectures are given in the same semester.

Modalità di esame: Prova orale obbligatoria;
Exam: Compulsory oral exam;
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: Compulsory oral exam;
Oral exam. Students will be asked to propose a solution to address a technical problem related to the subjects presented in classes. Examples: identify the required performance figures of a geo-localization system to control the movement of an unmanned vehicle; identify a sensor set able to provide an unmanned moving vehicle the necessary information to move inside a building along with humans.
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.
