Contents of the course
Theoretical instruction:
  1. Occupational safety and health guidance for vehicle operations and environmental protection.
  2. Diagnostic process of vehicle malfunction determination.
  3. On-board diagnostics. OBD and EOBD.
  4. Technical service information (ESI [tronic], Workshop, Autodata, Elsa Win ...).
  5. Analysis of electronic control system electrical scheme for petrol engine control.
  6. Analysis of electronic control system electrical scheme for diesel engine control.
  7. Diagnostic communication devices.
  8. Digital multimeters and oscilloscopes for measurement on vehicles.
  9. Diagnostic measurements in power supply electronic systems for modern vehicles with two lead acid batteries.
  10. Power sources for hybrid and electric vehicles.
  11. Diagnostic for light level measurements in electronic systems.
  12. Magnetic interference impact to electronic vehicle system operation.
  13. Bus for transferring data between electronic units of vehicles and communication protocols.
Practical instruction (Problem solving sessions/Lab work/Practical training):
  1. Performed in garage-laboratory on vehicles with sudents’ engagement. Students independently or with the help of the lecturer solve given tasks in the field of vehicle electronic system and chemical power sources and measurement gadgets in vehicles. Solving of specific tasks is based on the set of exercises from Practicum.
