The Post Master's degree in Communications for ITS offers the necessary knowledge required by engineers and managers to design Connected Cars/Connected Mobility applications to fully apprehend the innovations and unique opportunities of the Vehicular Communications industry.

Context - Connected Cars and ITS

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) promise to be one of the most dynamic and innovative specialization fields with a large expected industrial and business growth over the next decade. ITS aims at adding information and communication technologies to transportation infrastructures and vehicles in order to allow public agencies and transportation companies to improve:

traffic safety by reducing accidents. traffic efficiency by regulating and better distributing the traffic load, or smoothing tolling station congestions. the carbon footprint towards green driving and logistics, or deploying fully electric vehicles. Objectives ... [-]

The Course

The course aims at elaborating the future of sports cars design through the analysis of current design trends and through philosophical thinking about the profound changes that the “car product” is undergoing.

The availability of new and innovative energy sources, from solar to hydrogen, will not only create new machines but also a radical shift in the transportation paradigm. Aesthetics and use of sports cars will go through a complete rethinking and a new vision is required.

The objective of this course is to create a new design vernacular for future sports cars through a semiotic analysis of the significance of sport and its relation with the human being. At the Ferrari and Lamborghini Museums, it will be possible to examine in depth the significance of sports cars in the very context where they were first created.... [-]

IAAD department of “Car Body Architecture” first in Italy opened in Turin in 1978. Since 2008 it is entitled in memory of Andrea Pininfarina.

The specialization in Transportation design deals with the study of the main means of transport with a focus on mobility systems and environmental sustainability.

Turin is the undisputed world capital of automotive design and one of the centres of excellence in the international automotive industry: the great Italian production of Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo and Ferrari, the design of Giugiaro and Pininfarina, Bertone, the automotive innovation of Centro Ricerche Fiat, the robotic technologies of DEA, Comau and Rambaudi, the innovation of Oxygen (electric alternative mobility), not to mention an enormous satellite activities that serves not only Fiat, but almost all of the major car manufacturers in Europe and the world. To confirm this today also Chinese design companies choose Turin as European seat. Thanks to this important supply chain, IAAD Transportation design department is flanked by a pool of important partner companies both public and private, which contribute to the activation of research projects, special lectures, workshops and seminars, company visits, educational activities, and internships....
