In this course, students explore the key factors involved in vehicle control. Suspension and chassis design are considered using Newtonian mechanics and differential equations. Various suspension systems are discussed with respect to vehicle performance and passenger comfort. The electronic control unit is discussed in terms of its role in anti-lock braking, traction control, and electronic stability control systems. Students will learn the mechanics of generating downforce, minimizing aerodynamic drag, and its effect on straight line and cornering performance. Various mathematical and computational methods are explored to further describe these systems. By the end of the course, students will employ their understanding to build a working model of an independent suspension vehicle.
