The course was planned to run during September 2020, but it
has been postponed, due to the current economic situation at Chalmers. For more
information, please contact the examiner.
In this course hybrid dynamical systems (HDS) will be examined for modeling, simulation and control. The course both aims for giving a general theoretical background in HDS and applying this knowledge in specific vehicle/automotive and transport engineering problems. The application examples of Hybrid Dynamic Systems have interacting continuous time dynamics (modeled by ODEs) and discrete-event dynamics (modeled by automata).
