Course description

Communication network architecture. Network hardware., LAN, MAN, WAN, wireless networks. Error control and flow management in a computer network. Congestion control in a computer network. Computer network design. Computer network optimisation. Protocols and protocols architecture. Phases of communication protocol design. Tools for analyses and synthesis of communication protocols. The characteristics of a computer network in automotive industry (reliability, determinisms, efficiency, rate, security, user requirements dependence on component characteristics and their critical level). The main protocols and bus protocols used in automotive industry (basic information and studying practical protocols and bus technologies: CAN / CAN-FD, LIN, FlexRay, NAJ, BroadR doseg, deterministic Ethernet, detailed comparison of protocols and typical usage). Advanced topics: communication between two or more vehicles and communication between a vehicle and infrastructure.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. understand and describe characteristics and parameters of computer networks according to application requirements

2. apply the basic methods and tools for formal specification, verification and validation of computer protocols

3. define communication methods among vehicle computer systems and build simple computer programmes for such environments

4. analyse automotive computer network and define the characteristics of key protocols for automotive communication

5. design a simple communication system based on automotive communication protocols
