Project Course Automotive Control Engineering

(replaces Project Course Mechatronic Systems)

Objective of the Course

The main objective of the project course is the practical implementation of the during the studies acquired knowledge in form of a project. Through the conveyance of a systematic approach, a constant communication between project leaders and participants and the making of a structured presentation, the students carry out an independent project work in a team. Another goal is to convey a way of thinking for integrated mechatronic systems, in which process, actuators, sensors and information processing systems work together.

Contents of the Course

The project seminar focuses every summer semester on a field of application of mechatronic systems, such as automotive technology or the control of petrol and diesel engines.

Project Work:

Project tasks in the respective field of application are worked on by project groups (depending on the task 2 to 4 students) and supervised by employees of the department.

Projects may include the following topics:

  • Signal Analysis (periodic, stochastic)
  • Process identification (parameter estimation, neural networks)
  • Modelling of mechatronic components
  • Open-/Closed-loop control methods and algorithms (nonlinear, predictive, fuzzy control, …)
  • Monitoring and fault diagnosis

Completion of the Project Seminar:

For the completion of the project, a presentation of 10-15 min. should be given by each project group member. Furthermore for each project a written report should be submitted.
