    5. Required knowledge Bachelor level knowledge and skills in computer networks and/or telecommunications.
    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication technologies have gained significant attention as part of the automotive industry’s answers to the problems of ever-growing traffic in our cities, increasing emission, rising number of accidents and the prognosticated spreading of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles on the ground and in the air as well. This prominent topic of automotive research and unmanned aerial vehicle design anticipates novel life saving security solutions and increased efficiency of transportation leading to substantially reduced environmental impact and serious economic and social benefits.

    Students who have successfully finished this module
    • are familiar with the theory and practice of special communication requirements in autonomous vehicle systems
    • understand cooperative vehicle communication technologies of intelligent transportation systems
    • are capable of designing and developing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
    • are capable of designing and implementing movement control algorithms of autonomous vehicles are capable of optimizing V2X communication solutions
