Course Objective The aim of the course is to provide basics of theorical and practical learning of vehicle safety factors and elements
Course Content The course contains defination of passive safety, elements and systems of passive safety (examples about chasis, carriage body and cabin), functions, possitive and negative effects on humans, operation threshold
The course also includes defination of active safety, elements and systems of active safety (cruise control, comfort and inside and outside sensing systems)
Seat belts and air bags, ABS and its subprogrammes (like ASR and ESP), analysing of electrical/mechanical/hydraulical circuit schemes, circuit tracing, control of sensors, changing of system and elements acccording to system needs if necessary,are taken into account
