An Open Class is to be held at 06:30 PM on wednesday 17-01-2024 on Postgraduate in Advanced Automotive Mechatronic and NVH Systems (Blended learning).

This open class aims to address one of the many topics that will be discussed during the postgraduate course titled. Specifically, the open class will discuss the effect of active systems on the understeer characteristic to maximize the performance of high-performance vehicles. One of the case studies will primarily focus on Torque Vectoring, compared to a classic system found in every production car, such as ESP (Electronic Stability Program).

During the open class there will be a brief summary of the vehicle handling, from the theoretical to the modelling perspective, with a thorough description of the handling evaluation criteria.

This session will be held in English.
