Content and learning outcomes
The module provides a comprehensive overview of current methods of monitoring driver behavior and their areas of application including driver assist systems. Students will learn processes and boundary conditions to develop methods of driver behavior observation and will acquire the skills to independently analyze system relationships, develop evaluation methods as well as apply and arrange these in the context of statistical relevance. You will develop a detailed understanding of how driver behavior is observed and how this can be applied to future developments in automotive engineering, in particular Car2X communication.
The course is based on current examples and research areas of existing and budding methods and techniques of driver behavior observation, their components (measurement technology, databases, simulation models, protocols) and includes current issues regarding application (Car2X communication , optimizing fuel consumption, accident avoidance), opportunities (technical implementation, application areas away from the industry) and limitations (data processing, data protection, environmental influences). Students have the opportunity to gain some practical experience applying the methodology.
