Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching is based on computer class exercises. These exercises are used to understand the principles of working with selected programs and then to process the semester project.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

To obtain a graded course-unit credit, participation in tutorials and submission of a semestral project - processed real traffic accidents by a selected simulation program is required.

Language of instruction


Work placements

Not applicable.

Course curriculum

Lessons are realized in seven four-hour blocks once every 14 days:
1. and 2. Solution of vehicle impact in the environment of simulation program - impact parameters and their influence on the spray motion of the vehicle
3. and 4. Simulation of real traffic accident
5. and 6. Elaboration of semestral project - solution of real traffic accident including subsequent assessment of the possibility of collision avoidance
7. Submission of semestral work, evaluation.


The aim of the course is to acquire habits in the use of selected simulation program for solving traffic accidents.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
