- It is important to have theory lectures and guest lectures also. The guest lecture should not repeat the same aspects --> spend time to develop examples, relation between theory and reality » (I like this better)
- Many lecturers gave contradicting information and many variations of the same concepts. More structured and effective basic information should be available, for example based on this year"s lecture content and then guest lecturers are good.» (It makes little difference)
- Both good and bad, good cos the teacher really knows what he is talking about, bad cos the outline on all the lectures are different.» (It makes little difference)
- Pros: More varied lectures. Cons: Less continuity» (It makes little difference)

Goals and goal fulfilment

The course syllabus states the course goals in terms of learning outcomes, i.e., knowledge, skills and attitudes to be acquired by the student during the course.

This is how the course goals are formulated:
After completion of this course, the student should be able to
- List the most important sensor principles under consideration for automotive safety applications and to explain their technological advantages and limitations.
- Explain the special challenges that are encountered in information processing in vehicle safety system applications.
- Explain the most common systems for vehicle control assistance and intervention and to analyse their potential and possible limitations.
- Explain different system principles for information based interaction and communication with the vehicle surrounding.
- Describe the most important principles for driver information display and to explain the challenges in designing systems that are adapted to the human cognitive capacity and human behaviour and response.
- Explain the potential for improved crash safety and post collision emergency care with the use of new technologies.
- Compare, evaluate and prioritise between different active safety systems.

- A 4-hour is more difficult so we have to be quick and concise A home exam allows us to develop better our ideas (because more time to do that)» (The two examination types are equal)

- Task for the project can be defined more clear, as for now it can be understood in different ways. On the other hand it gives students some freedom.» (Yes, very much)

- I recommend better organizing of the huge amount of files online. Till next time, please put them in a number of folders named according to content. Also, each lecture could be given a number in the beginning of the filename to indicate the chronological order. This would have saved me (and other students) some problems/time.» (Rather well)

- Visits to Linköping, but try to see the simulators of VTI working. And Guest lecturers»
- VTI lectures»
- the project»
- not sure »

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- In my opinion there are a lot of differetn lecturers, some things were repeted and other things were supossed to be known by us»
- the type of examination»
- Theories should be well explained! "Quality" is more important than "quantity".»
- maybe the exam. I prefer a larger group project.»
- The written exam»
- home exam »
- The topic of the project»
- project topics and perhaps the whole idea (running a simulator study at Lindholmen instead?) (evaluating alternative input methods for car control? compurer game + steering wheel, keyboard, joystick, gamepad, head tracking "Track IR", "OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator", "Emotiv EPOC") (existing in car system evaluation)»
- skip the course book and give handouts of what the students should know, it is confusing to have a course book that isn"t needed.»
- Use lower limits for the exam or make it a home exam because the way it was now is not normal.»
- not sure »

19. Additional comments

- I think students can handle more lectures in this course. There are so many interesting topics in the area, I would like to have more lectures.»
- Grading limits should be lowered.»
- all the lecture begin with the same general information so it would be better to suppress it after a while. »
- For this course to work, it must be "Advanced Active traffic safety" instead with mandatory prerequisite of standard "Active safety" course»
- not sure»
