Development of Efficient Models of Frictionally Induced Vibrations for the Prediction of Automotive Brake Squeal.

  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
Brake squeal continues to be a problem for vehicle manufacturers, generating noise pollution, customer dissatisfaction and significant warranty claims. Read more

Resilience and Reliability Assurance for Multidisciplinary Autonomous Systems

  Research Group: Advanced Automotive Analytics Research Institute
This project will look at establishing a fundamental basis for the reliability and resilience assurance of multidisciplinary autonomous systems, considering both the design paradigm (underpinned by a model-based systems engineering approach) and the fail-operational requirements. Read more

PhD in Video Compression at the Edge for Automotive Applications

Project Description. Since the mid-2000s the number of remote sensors (RADAR, Imaging, LiDAR) on cars has been increasing, supporting ever-more sophisticated Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and a strong push towards Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). Read more

Fracture of Automotive Advanced High Strength Steels

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are increasingly used throughout the chassis of modern cars since they provide a high strength-to-weight ratio and improved crashworthiness due to greater energy absorption capabilities. Read more

AI-based vehicle dynamics controllers and observers for off-road autonomous driving

The project aims at exploring novel algorithms for controlling the dynamic behaviour of autonomous vehicles suitable for both on-road and off-road conditions, with specific focus on the latter. Read more

AI-based integrated chassis control for automated vehicles

The project aims to explore the active safety potential of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms for the control of multiple chassis actuators (electric powertrains, brake-by-wire, four-wheel-steering and active suspension) in automated vehicles operating at and beyond the limit handling. Read more

Electric Motor Torque Estimation

Knowing the torque produced by an electric motor is essential in a wide range of applications. In electric vehicles it is important to deliver the torque requested by the driver, and it becomes very important for good drivability when blending regenerative braking torque with the hydraulic brakes.
