Vehicle-cybernetic covers the area of information and control
systems in the vehicle. The importance of this area for vehicle
engineering is increasing because of two reasons:
- With microelectronics, a technology has become available for a
development which offers completely new possibilities for the
realisation of complex cybernetic systems in the vehicle.
- The interdisciplinary area of the control and data-processing
interaction between driver, vehicle and environment is the one
which has the highest potential of improvements in primary safety,
economy and consistence with the environment, because each of the
single systems have been largely optimized in the course of its
long time of development.
In the contribution the projects from the area of
vehicle-cybernetics are presented in a systematical analysis. They
include among other things: driver information system, operational
components, collision avoidance radar, active steering, active
suspension, lateral and longitudinal control, orientation systems,
guidance systems, automation and the vehicle simulator.
