  • fur­ther develop the depart­ment in the main areas of energy man­age­ment of the entire vehicle as well as con­ven­tional and altern­at­ive drive sys­tems (elec­tric, hydro­gen-based, regen­er­at­ive energy sources),
  • develop the top­ics of vehicle con­cepts and human-machine inter­faces as well as other future-ori­ented top­ics,
