Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

The aim of the module is to provide the students with the fundamental knowledge to recognize and to utilize the main on board networks and protocols interacting with the driveline and the foundamental techniques for vehicle to internet interconnection. Students learn the principle of operation and use vehicular networking and protocols: 1) CAN vehicular network (characteristic, application, implementation); 2) UDS - Universal Diagnostic Service characteristic and implementation; 3) XCP – Universal calibration protocol. Students understand the basic features and application of the Vehicle to infrastructure networking: 1) Vehicle to Internet communication services (TCP/IP, etc…): 2) Data compression and data transmission. 3) DoIP: Diagnosis and service over the internet. 4) Edge and cloud computing for predictive maintenance. 5) Electric vehicle Fleet management. 6) Remote Battery Management System. Improvement of battery safety control and second life battery use.


This course provides a survey of vehicular computing paradigms, algorithms and systems with the goal of understanding the impact of mobility, propagation, computation and protocol tradeoffs in the connected vehicles scenarios.

The course covers fundamental and advanced principles of Vehicular Networks, computing continuum (edge-fog-cloud) paradigms for vehicle applications and industrially relevant simulation environments used to design vehicular communication systems.

Topics include:

- introduction to networking and protocols

- in-car networking (protocols, ECU, software layers and RTOSes)

- off-car communication (protocols, edge/fog/cloud communication)

- safety and security aspects

- simulation and Hardware-in-the-Loop
