VDC2019 registration

A one-day seminar to explore recent developments in the design and analysis of road vehicle dynamic behaviour will be held at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge on Tuesday 19 March 2019. The seminar will be of benefit to engineers working in many branches of vehicle and component engineering including research, design, development, testing and competition. The topics covered are relevant to a broad range of vehicles including road and racing cars, motorcycle and trucks. Fourteen presentations in four sessions will cover topics including torque vectoring, human steering control, driver assistance, tyres, hydraulic dampers, mechatronic suspension, motion simulators, and autonomous vehicles. Each presentation will be followed by audience questions. Refreshment breaks and lunch will offer opportunities for further discussion. The seminar brochure includes details of the presentations.


The cost of attending the seminar is £85 inclusive of lunch and refreshments (exempt from VAT). Register and pay here. The closing date for registrations is Monday 11 March 2019. Note that the total number of delegates is limited so registration may close before this date. Delegate names may be changed at any time.
