13. Prerequisites  
14. Description of lectures
The target of the subject is to present the vehicle systems and structures. Within the framework of the subject the vehicle engines, transmissions, suspension systems, brake systems and frame structures are teached. In the Autonomous Vehicle Control Enginees MSc tematics, the target of the subject is to caught up the students, who do not have vehicle engineer BSc. By the subject the students are able to recognise the important parts and systems of road vehicles, they know their function and operatation.
Structures of road vehicles, vehicle categories according to UN, elements and orientation of the transmission system.
The types and the operation of internal combustion engines, fuels, emission.
The geometry of the cranktrain, the indicator diagram, the power, the torque, the efficiency and the fuel consumption of the internal combustion engines.
Structure of internal combustion engines, lubrication system, cooling system.
Fuel systems and charging of internal combustion engines.
Wheel dimensions, tyre parameters, suspension geometry, Ackermann governing.
Structure an operation of clutches and manual transmissions.
Dual clutch transmissions, hydrodinamical clutch and gearboxes.
Planetary gear. Automatized and automatic transmission systems.
Final gears, differentials, wheel bearings.
Types of suspension systems, shock absorbers.
Hydraulic brake systems, ABS.
Air brake systems.
Frameworks and structures of road vehicles, passive safety systems.

18. Requirements, way to determine a grade (obtain a signature)
The semester mark reflects the results of the two midterm tests and the homework (1/3-1/3-1/3 weight). Participation in the lab, the two successful midterm tests and the accepted homework are the prerequisite for fulfilling the subject.
19. Opportunity for repeat/retake and delayed completion
One midterm test can be retried, tasks must be given accurately.
