About the course
UNDERSTAND MODELING AND CONTROL OF CONNECTED VEHICLE SYSTEMS
This online course focuses on modeling and control of connected vehicle systems consisting of human-driven and connected automated vehicles. Models are built in terms of ordinary differential equations and delay differential equations, and their dynamics are studied at the linear and nonlinear levels. Controllers for connected automated vehicles are designed so that they can ensure stability and disturbance attenuation. The impacts of connectivity and automation on improving safety, energy efficiency, and mobility are evaluated.

TIME COMMITMENT AND WORK PACE
Modules are divided into shorter segments making it easier to learn at your own pace.
If completing a specialization, all four modules must be purchased together and completed in 180 days. For individual modules, you will have 60 days to complete.
Successful completion requires you to view all course modules and receive an 80% passing grade on the course assessment. Upon completing these requirements, you will earn a digital badge for your resume or professional profile.
CERTIFICATE OPTION AND SPECIALIZATIONS
Upon successful completion of 4 modules purchased as a group, you will receive the U-M Certificate in Current and Emerging Technologies.
Select 4 modules from one concentration to deepen your knowledge in a subject or area. If you choose a specialization, your certificate will note the specialization you completed.
