Automated, Connected and Intelligent Vehicles


Course Description:
The Automated, Connected, and Intelligent Vehicles course was developed by Springfield Technical Community College and the Center for Advanced Automotive Technology (CAAT). The goal of the course is to introduce students to the various technologies and systems used to implement Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). These systems have the overall impact of automating various driving functions and create a safer driving experience for the passengers. The basics of automotive electronics, fundamentals of electronic control systems, and the evolution of these systems will be introduced. The necessary components needed to implement ADAS include advanced location and vehicle surroundings sensors, wireless technology, and the networking and processing of data are presented. The details of various ADAS are covered including the most recent innovations: lane keeping, collision avoidance, automatic emergency braking, and autonomous vehicles. Other course topics include: sensor data fusion, advanced display and driver warning technology, impaired/medical emergency driver sensor technology, vehicle prognostics, and system troubleshooting. 

Course Contents:
Course materials include a syllabus, PowerPoint lectures, handouts, homework assignments, lab exercises and projects, and quizzes. The 8-page course syllabus includes a course description, learning outcomes, course topics and roadmap, grading and assessment information, and other course related information. The 8-page homework document, Course HWs, includes questions for each topic covered in the course. Information on obtaining homework and quiz answers are included in the Read Me documents.
