Vehicle Dynamics, Stability and Control (Part 3 of 4)
(Session Code: AC500)

Room 415 A  8:00 a.m.

This session is focused on vehicle dynamics and controls using modeling and simulation, and experimental analysis of passenger cars, heavy trucks, and wheeled military vehicles. This session addresses active and passive safety systems to mitigate rollover, yaw instability and braking issues; driving simulators and hardware-in-the-loop systems; suspension kinematics and compliance, steering dynamics, advanced active suspension technologies; and tire force and moment mechanics.

Organizers - David A. Finch, Raetech Corp.; W. Riley Garrott, National Hwy Traffic Safety Admin; Paul Grygier; Mark Heitz; Gary J. Heydinger, SEA, Ltd.; Raymond Leto, TotalSim LLC; David R. Mikesell; Michael Royce; M. Kamel Salaani, Transportation Research Center Inc.; Amandeep Singh, US Army TARDEC
