Abstract [en]

This report is the result of a survey of the current state of the art/ practice in vehicular mechatronics. It summarizes a large quantity of scientific papers and theses, as well as white papers and field trips to manufacturers.

Mechatronics is a multi-domain discipline which is the result of the evolution of the single-domain engineering disciplines mechanics, electronics, information processing and control. Mechatronics is central for most new innovations in automotive products; “according to manufacturers statements, about 90% of all innovations for automobiles are due to electronics and mechatronics” [42]. The consequence of this is that vehicular mechatronics has become an important field of research.

Since this is an incredibly broad field of research, the focus of this report has mainly been on brake and steering systems but the report also covers a wider more general scope of systems. The report covers a wide range of subjects within vehicular mechatronics, e.g. everything from legislative requirements to actual prototypes.

One of the conclusion drawn in this report is that there is a lack of research with a more holistic approach to the systems. Most research only treat individual systems and omit the level of integration and interplay between subsystems and engineering domains which is typical for modern vehicles. There is also a lack of result validation in real conditions; most research are only evaluated through software simulations or in best case with hardware-in-the-loop simulations. Another problem is that most research focus on single aspects like e.g. fuel consumption when there is a lot more properties which need to be taken into account.
