Course content
Obsah:The subject includes topics focused on the management systems of the vehicle and its parts. Specification of chapters (thematic destination) will be given with respect to the theme of the dissertation in the individual study plan. Overview main themes: Control systems (powetrain atc.)- Driving safety and assistance on navigation and guidance level (senzore for driver assistance systems, actuators electronically brake systems, automatic steering systems, electronic acceleration control, lane departure warning, cruise control). Driving safety by dynamic control systems on stabilization level (longitudinal dynamics control), laternal vehicle dynamics, vertical dynamics control. Vehicle dynamics control of jounger (new) generation (nové) (Superimposed steering systems superponované, variable steering gear ratio, stabilizing intervention for oversteering or undesteering intervention An example of selected chapters (build circuits, properties of control systems, sensor values, adaptive systems) - building device and the main components (mechanical, hydraulic, electrical, and combinations thereof); - properties tract motor vehicles, properties, operating systems (dynamic mechanisms) - control systems and their components, adaptive and fuzzy control, - build circuits, control systems, sensor values, - power transmission and control parameters, simulation models and laboratory experiments, - modeling and simulation, experimental methods, laboratory.

Learning outcomes
Objective: Study course is designed for doctoral candidates. To contribute to the expansion of knowledge in the study area and provide new insights for the development of the doctoral thesis. The course aims to provide students with information and knowledge about construction vehicle systems and their controls and operational processes. Selected chapters can be oriented eg. to: - power transmission and transport phenomena, - engine management system and other vehicles, - vehicle systems (braking systems, ride stabilization etc.), - the composition and process control circuits, - modeling and Simulation.
Students obtain knowledge in accordance with requirements and course programme.
Prerequisites

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral exam, Oral presentation of self-study

Hydraulic and Pneumatic Mechanisms Objective: Study course is designed for doctoral candidates. To contribute to the expansion of knowledge in the study area and provide new insights for the development of the doctoral thesis. Aims: The aim of the course is to provide students with knowledge of construction of hydrostatic devices principally from the user aspect. They will be cognizant of properties of already constructed and tested devices, and apply the acquired knowledge in designing and projection of manufacturing machines, industrial robots, manipulators (including peripheral equipment and end effectors), and manipulation devices in general. The course provides students with basic information about the structure of hydrostatic and pneumatic circuits (power and control circuits). The acquired knowledge is a necessary condition for further work in various technical fields, such as designing and projection of the machinery devices with the assistance of hydraulic and pneumatic components. In the laboratory tutorials the students are made familiar with the particular components used for the structure of hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. Also dealt will be the functions, properties and characteristics of that circuits. The tutorials will include also practical exercises concerning the synthesis and the analysis of hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. Syllabus: 1. Hydrostatic and pneumatic circuits division 2.
