Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Basic courses in mechanics

Syfte

The objective of this course is to provide the student with a basic understanding of the role of passive and active safety in the context of traffic safety. After this course, the student in their profession as engineers should be able to understand the litterature in the field of active and passive safety, take part in tests of passive and active safety systems, and prove basic knowledge of the complexity of designing active and passive systems.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

  • Describe various means to reduce traffic related fatalities and injuries

  • Discuss the effect of different car structure design and crash configurations on in-crash load paths in the vehicle and in the occupants

  • Explain means to avoid incompatibility between different road vehicles and road furniture

  • Describe how car restraints and car structure can reduce injury risk

  • Relate the biomechanics of the human body to traffic safety

  • Describe the basics of the explicit finite element method and give examples of how simulations can be used to assess crash safety

  • Design and perform a crash test, filter and analyse data, suggest applicable injury criteria and calculate injury criteria values

  • List the most important sensor principles under consideration for automotive safety applications and to explain their technological advantages and limitations

  • Motivate the scope of active safety in the context of traffic safety

  • Describe the general architecture of state-of-art active safety systems

  • Provide examples of active safety systems on the market and describe their operation and implementation

  • Explain what cooperative systems are and how they can be used to extend the functionalities of state-of-art active safety systems

  • Discuss the importance of human factors in the design of active safety systems

  • Illustrate the tools currently available for evaluating active safety system
