This volume contains the Proceedings of the 2nd IFAC Workshop on Advances in Automotive Control, the theme of which was control of automotive systems.
Eighty delegates participated in the Workshop, presenting a total of thirty-nine papers. Several technical demonstrations were available on-site. Two plenary lectures presented by industry experts opened each of the two full days of the Workshop, which was capped by a panel discussion with industry and university participants.

These Proceedings comprise high quality technical papers on five distinct subjects: control of vehicle systems; control of intelligent transportation systems; control of hybrid-electric powertrains; powertrain modeling and estimation; and powertrain control.

Chapter headings and selected papers: Control of Vehicle Systems. Elimination of limit cycles due to signal estimation in semi-active suspensions (A. Hac, A.V. Fratini Jr.).
