Competencies

In the field of automotive technology, a large number of research projects have been offered for years with public funding or on behalf of institutions or companies. This has resulted in a broad portfolio of expertise, which is regularly renewed and maintained at an international level through a very good level of scientific equipment.

Special competences have been built up in the fields of vehicle digitisation (e.g. autonomous driving) and environmental protection (e.g. non-exhaustive emissions).

Driver assistance systems:

  • Assistance systems to optimise driving safety and energy efficiency

  • longitudinal and lateral dynamic control of autonomous vehicles, vehicle dynamics control

  • New development and design

  • Simulation of the dynamic behaviour

  • Integrated real-time control on the vehicle

Non-exhaust-emissions

  • Research and test centre for powertrain emissions
  • Basic investigations of measuring and testing technology for brake-induced emissions
  • Basic investigations of measuring and testing technology for tyre-induced emissions
  • Simulation of flow processes (multiphase flow)
  • Our department is the official validation laboratory of the PMP Group (Particle Measurement Program UNECE Informal Group Non-exhaust particle emissions) of the European Commission.

Landing gear systems:

  • Integrated active chassis systems for multi-actuated and electric motor vehicles

  • Chassis design (focus on braking systems)

  • Tirbolic basic research

  • Vibration and noise behaviour (NVH)

  • Mechatronic chassis systems

  • Functional behaviour of tyres
