This Proceedings contains the papers presented at the Third IFAC Workshop on "ADVANCES IN AUTOMOTIVE CONTROL" held in Karlsruhe, Germany, on 28-30 March 2001.
As the subject indicates, the aim of this workshop was to discuss not only the latest advances related to motor vehicles, but also, and more generally, to exchange ideas between academic partners, car manufacturers and subcontractors. The plenary lectures are of great importance and the thematic sessions in the different sections are the essence of such workshops. However, the discussions between experts in the different fields, the meetings between people from industry, universities and public or private laboratories, as well as the resulting exchange of ideas, are as important.
Research is often criticized for providing merely theoretical results and for the insufficient number of its applications. The motor vehicle industry offers a wide field of applications in which we can validate all techniques, tools and methods. This allows us to be involved in all the areas of fundamental research, in all the different possible approaches from fundamental research to technology transfer, and to observe the actual effects of our results.
The increase in road traffic was a major problem of the last century. It is clear that one of the challenges of the XXIst century will be to improve driving safety and comfort. The sessions in the Proceedings volume are divided as follows: Driveline control, Driveline modelling, Vehicle dynamics (I and II), Electronic architecture, Intelligent components, Engine control (I and II), Engine modelling, Modelling of combustion and turbo-charging, Diagnostics and Subsystems.
The quality of the papers and the diversity of their origins clearly show the interest taken in this key sector of our research and industry.
