Week I: Professors and further information on lectures and projects

  • Prof. Dr. Werner Huber 
Has obtained his Doctor degree from the Technical University of Munich and has worked for the BMW Group in Germany for almost two decades. There he began working as a Development Engineer for Vehicle and Traffic Research and later undertook management positions as such for Innovation, Integration of Driving Functions and Integral Safety. His broad experience led him to be the advisor for the Complete Vehicle Architecture and Integration and later to be the Head of the Research Group for Automated Driving. Today he is professor for Integral Safety and Test Methods at Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI) and lead researcher at the Center of Automotive Research on Integrated Safety Systems and Measurement Area (CARISSMA).

Lecture: Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and Automated Driving
The lecture addresses the topic and the state of the art of automated driving and related technologies. Essential learning objectives are:
  • The students understand the basics of driving by means of models and control loops (driver-vehicle-environment).
  • The students can distinguish the different degrees of automation and automation functions for transverse and longitudinal guidance and know the basic functions.
  • Students understand the importance of security features.
  • The participants know the basics of vehicle electronics and sensor technologies and know their strengths and weaknesses.
  • The participants understand the principles of validation and testing of automated vehicles.
Student Project: Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and Automated Driving – 3h
In this session, the learned input will be transferred to application case studies worked in student groups.

  • Prof. Dr. Armin Arnold 
Has obtained his doctor degree in physics from the University of Regensburg and has worked for Continental AG in Germany for more than one decade. He started as a development engineer for vehicle dynamic algorithms like anti-lock braking and rollover detection. Later on he was working in the central department helping to establish AUTOSAR in the company. Today he is professor for automotive mechatronics at Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI).

Lecture:  Vehicle Dynamics
The lectures will cover a basic introduction into vehicle dynamics: Tire properties, suspension setup and a simplified mathematical car model will be explained. After successfully completing this course the students shall be able to explain the driving behavior and setup of a conventional car plus be able to deduct the possibilities offered by modern systems like torque vectoring, active suspensions etc. As a prerequisite, the knowledge of the general mechanical rules (Newton) is necessary.

Student Project: Vehicle Dynamics – 3h
In this session, the learned input will be transferred to application case studies worked in student groups.

 

Week II: Professors and further information on lectures and projects

  • Dr. Dagmar Tomanek
Is a postdoctoral researcher at the Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI). He works currently in the project "industry NOW" funded by the Bavarian Ministry for Science and Culture, which promotes the digitalization of production at THI. He has research experience in several national and international projects. His research focus is the optimization of value added considering digital transformation. Furthermore, he is an inventor and patent holder (together with Jürgen Schröder) of the Value Added Heat Map.

Lecture: Digitization - Value Added Management
From a business point of view, Value Added Management is the theoretical fundament of a successful digitalization. A value added optimization through digitalization promises a competitive advantage. Contents of the lectures are:
  • Theoretical principles of Value Added Management.
  • Practical training in Value Added Optimization:
  • Identification of value added and non-value added activities (wastage).
  • Development of actions to eliminate and reduce non-value added activities.
  • Joint exercise: Value Added Heat Map.
  • Opportunity to ask questions.
Workshop 1: Digitization in Production - Good Practice & Applied Case Studies.
The workshop follows up the lecture "Digitization - Value Added Management". The objective of the workshop is a deeper knowledge in digitalization of production. Contents of the workshop are:
  • Digitalization of production: new technologies; scope of application.
  • Case study: Digitalization in maintenance.
  • Case study: Digitalization in administration.
  • Opportunity to ask questions.
Workshop 2: Digitization in Logistics - Good Practice & Applied Case Studies.
The workshop follows up the lectures "Digitization - Value Added Management". The objective of the workshop is a deeper knowledge in digitalization of logistics. Contents of the workshop are:
  • Digitalization of logistics: new technologies; scope of application.
  • Case study: transport logistics.
  • Train your digital skills: Get prepared for digitalization!
Opportunity to ask questions.

  • Dr. Christian Facchi
Is Professor for SW Engineering and Distributed Applications at Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI) since 2004. His research interest is currently Vehicle2X-Communication, RFID, Testing in Industry 4.0 and Software Testing. He is leading several public funded (4.2 Mio €) and founded by Industry (1.6 Mio €) projects. Since 2011 he is head of the THI research center and graduate school. Currently he holds since 2013 a research professorship for embedded and distributed systems.
Lecture: Industry 4.0 from the Perspective of Computer Science.
Industry 4.0 is a widespread topic. However, there is no clear uniquely defined semantics available. This lecture tries to define Industry 4.0 from a Computer Science perspective.
The lecture has the objectives for the students:
  • To compare several existing definitions and to compare them. Especially to relate technical definitions to marketing definitions.
  • To define Cyber-Physical Production Systems.
  • To understand some open challenges/ research questions.
Lecture: Digitalization in Automotive Mobility – Car2X
Communication between vehicles and infrastructure will significantly change the digitalization capabilities of automobiles. This lecture will present different aspects of Car2X-Communication technologies and relates the used methods to Industry 4.0.
The lecture has the objectives for the students:
  • To know which Car2X-Communication techniques are available.
  • To know how these techniques can increase automotive safety, sustainability and comfort.
  • To understand some open challenges/ research questions.
  • To know how to test Car2X-Applications.
  • To bridge the gap between Car2X-Communiaction and Industry 4.0.
