The book provides the essential features necessary to understand and apply the mathematical-mechanical characteristics and tools for vehicle dynamics including control mechanism. An introduction to passenger car modeling of different complexities provides the basics for the dynamical behavior and presents vehicle models later used for the application of control strategies. The presented modeling of the tire behavior, also for transient changes of the contact patch properties, shows the necessary mathematical descriptions used for the simulation of the vehicle dynamics. The introduction to control for cars and its extension to complex applications using e.g. observers and state estimators is a main part of the book. Finally the formulation of proper multibody codes for the simulation leads to the integration of all parts. Examples of simulations and corresponding test verifications show the profit of such a theoretical support for the investigation of the dynamics of passenger cars.

You haven't gotten yourself a R107 yet? Too bad, the good ones can cost a small fortune today and they have only one way to go: UP! But don't worry, plenty of them have been built and plenty of them are still around. Problem is, which one is the right one for you? Can you imagine that even a low mileage, good looking R107 can still far exceed your wildest imaginations, when it comes to restoration costs? Everybody seems to want a late model 560SL. Why not an early 450SL for half the money? The joy and pride of ownership is the same, trust me. Or how about one of the former longtime underdogs, an SLC? Also they start to appreciate, a few of them even very fast, faster than a mint 560SL. If any of this is of interest, then this new book (published already earlier as e-book) is for you. It does not only deal with development and history, it also comes with a comprehensive buyer's guide for both the SL and SLC. This includes a look at their price development over the past years. Another focus has been the VIN and data card, so that you have a better understanding, how they were equipped and to which market they have been shipped first. Superb recent photography from the author's collection can help you to find the right car or it might even serve as reference in a restoration project. Naturally the paint and interior upholstery options, full technical details plus the annual production history of each model are covered. As a bonus, rare insights into the R107's almost unknown rally history are given.FREE BONUS: When you have bought this book, you are eligible for a free pdf file of any Mercedes model (such as W111 or W198 or R107 for example) the author has covered in one of his books. Please contact the author through his website (inside the book) and stipulate, which free pdf file you want him to send to you.

If you started to look in 2015 for a decent R129, you might have wondered, why quite a few of them are already fairly expensive. Like its predecessor, it was built in relatively large numbers for a luxury sports roadster and like its predecessor, good examples will become only more expensive over the next years. The V8 is naturally the most popular version, but why not also consider the more reasonably priced six-cylinder models. After all you don't plan to use this car anymore to get as fast as possible from A to B. Today you use it more like you enjoy a well aged wine, where you savour every sip. With the R129 you cherish every ride. A special case is the V12. To buy one that is less than perfect is a guarantee to ruin you. You have read this far, then this new book, which was already published as e-book, will interest you. It comes with a comprehensive buyer's guide and explains the VIN and data card in great detail, so that one has a better understanding, how these cars were originally equipped and to which market they have been shipped first. Naturally it covers the development and history of the R129, but it also reveals the engines' strong and weak points and has a look at the cars' recent price development. The book ends with a detailed list of the cars' technical specifications and the annual production history of each model.

Most innovations in the car industry are based on software and electronics, and IT will soon constitute the major production cost factor. It seems almost certain that embedded IT security will be crucial for the next generation of applications. Yet whereas software safety has become a relatively well-established field, the protection of automotive IT systems against manipulation or intrusion has only recently started to emerge. Lemke, Paar, and Wolf collect in this volume a state-of-the-art overview on all aspects relevant for IT security in automotive applications. After an introductory chapter written by the editors themselves, the contributions from experienced experts of different disciplines are structured into three parts. "Security in the Automotive Domain" describes applications for which IT security is crucial, like immobilizers, tachographs, and software updates. "Embedded Security Technologies" details security technologies relevant for automotive applications, e.g., symmetric and asymmetric cryptography, and wireless security. "Business Aspects of IT Systems in Cars" shows the need for embedded security in novel applications like location-based navigation systems and personalization. The first book in this area of fast-growing economic and scientific importance, it is indispensable for both researchers in software or embedded security and professionals in the automotive industry.
