Title : Trends in active control of chassis systems - technology with customer value in a global automotive world
  The development of active automotive chassis systems is showing Up¡¯s and Down¡¯s over the last four decades of automotive development. Since the main focus in car development over the last 10 years has shifted dramatically to the reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 especially, active chassis system developments have been prioritized to systems with as significant customer value in the daily use of a vehicle. Nevertheless new electric actuators for active chassis systems do offer new opportunities at a fair extra price level that currently initiates a new trend through certain vehicle segments.

This keynote speak is showing the general global trends for active chassis systems that control the yaw and role movement of the vehicle as well as the brake and acceleration force of the individual wheel. The presentation will include both technology and market trends: a summary of the latest technology trends for actuators, sensors and electronics hardware and software, and also a summary of latest market trends: which active chassis function is or will become a standard feature in which vehicle segment in which region of the automotive world? Which further functionalities are possible via new sensors and vehicle to vehicle communication in the future? This presentation will also give a mid- to long-term outlook on the future of advanced vehicle control in chassis systems.

Title :
Evaluation of Active Vehicle Motion Controls from The View Points of Tire Energy Dissipation
An estimation method of tire energy dissipation due to tire slips during vehicle motion is proposed. The method is applied to the evaluation of G-Vectoring control. Also a newly proposed tire force distribution control minimizing the tire energy dissipation for full drive-by-wire electric powered vehicle is evaluated by the method.

Title : What can racing teach us about autonomous vehicles?
Who will be driving on the highway of the future? Will our cars do the driving while we text or will we engage in a new driving experience coupling human and machine? This talk looks at these questions through the lens of two research projects at Stanford University. In the first, we are instrumenting vintage vehicles and their drivers to gain a better understanding of the experience of driving at the limits of a car's capability and the skills required to do so. In the second project, we are using this understanding to develop Shelley, an Audi TTS capable of racing autonomously around a track like a professional race car driver. Through this work we hope to unlock some of the secrets of the best drivers and use this knowledge to design cars that can work with us to achieve peak performance or confidently take control if we desire.
