AAC workshop


To enhance the experience and exchange in the symposium we are planning to give two post-symposium tutorials:

  • Title of the 1st workshop proposal: New advances on autonomous vehicle see flyer with details
  • Summary of the WorkShop:

New challenges undeniably occur while building next-generation autonomous vehicles. New solutions and technologies are continuously developed and designed toward a truly autonomous vehicle, that is to say, a machine behaving like a human.

Five levels have been defined in the evolution of autonomous driving, each level describing the extent to which a car takes over tasks and responsibilities from its driver, and how the car and driver interact:

    1. Driver assistance: driver assistance systems support the driver, but do not take control;
    2. Partly automated driving: one driver assistance system of steering and acceleration/ deceleration is automated, but the driver remains responsible for operating the vehicle;
    3. Highly automated driving: under certain traffic or environmental conditions, the driver can disengage from the driving for extended periods of time;
    4. Fully automated driving: the vehicle drives independently most of the time to perform all safety-critical driving functions and monitor roadway conditions, the driver being able to drive;
    5. Full automation: the vehicle assumes all driving functions in every driving scenario, the people in the vehicle being only passengers.

The autonomous vehicle is a combination of sensors and actuators, sophisticated algorithms, and powerful processor systems that execute advanced software. Three parts emerge from the sensory system:

    • navigation and guidance part that determines where you are, where you want to go, and how you get there;
    • driving and safety that directs the vehicle, making sure that vehicle acts properly under all circumstances and follow the road legislation;
    • performance that manages car’s internal systems (power control and management, consumtion and thermal dissipation)

Lots of challenges are still open such as road conditions, weather conditions, traffic conditions, accident liability, radar interference,…

  • Title of the 2nd workshop proposal: Modeling and Control of Turbocharged Engines see flyer with details
  • Summary of the WorkShop:

This two day interactive tutorial will give you an introduction to modeling and control of turbocharged combustion engines. You will learn about mean value engine modeling (MVEM), parameter estimation, model validation, downsizing, turbocharging, powertrain control systems, implementation issues and more. The emphasis will be on turbocharging. You will build and validate your own turbocharger model, if you have your own turbocharger data you can use that to build your model. You will also get to build a boost pressure controller for your turbocharger in a MVEM framework using Matlab®/Simulink®. This is a chance to meet and learn from some of the very best in the field of turbocharging and you can expect a great learning experience and lots of fun.

The Workshops will be held after the conference on June 28th and 29th, 2019 at University of Orleans Campus. Please note that workshops are subject to cancellation for lack of registrants and allow a maximum number of participants.

The costs for attending the post-conference workshop are: €175 (excluded VAT) for each registrant. Conference registration is a prerequisite for registering at the post-conference workshop.
