Course Description

The Government of Japan and the automobile-related industry are strategically implementing activities to reduce automobile accidents. In this course, students will learn about such accident reduction activities and the functions and performance of the latest automobile safety technologies. In addition, students will learn how human characteristics such as driver characteristics that cause automobile accidents and human characteristics (biomechanics) that affect the magnitude of damage after an accident are related to various automobile safety technologies.
Students will acquire the knowledge, skill and behavior for DP2 to DP5.

Course Objectives

The goal of this lesson is to enable students to talk about design concepts that build on an understanding of the capabilities, performance, and human characteristics of automotive safety technologies.

Grading Policy

Evaluate based on reports and exercise results (100%).
