Over the past several years, the challenges in automotive engineering for every type of mobility have grown substantially, and show no signs of subsiding. In all areas of mobility for passengers and cargo, practitioners and students alike require quick and easy access to fundamentals and details on vehicles and drive systems, digitalization, networking, and corresponding industrial processes. This updated 9th edition offers comprehensive information on these topics. In addition to covering the latest innovations, it especially focuses on the rapid advances in combustion-engine, hybrid, electric and fuel-cell drive systems. Future limits on CO2 g/km will spark a number of new solutions. Other topics addressed in the 9th edition include automated driving and innovations in mobility services, electrical and electronic systems, networking, body, lightweight design, man/machine interaction and related processes. The contributing authors are outstanding experts from the automotive and supply industry, development companies, and scientific institutes. This combination of expertise helps to ensure that theory and practice receive equal attention and are successfully blended.
