Handling Objective Evaluation Using a Parametric Driver Model for ISO Lane Change Simulation 2002-01-1569
Performance of a vehicle in the ISO lane change maneuver  correlates well with subjective handling evaluations. Therefore, it is one of the FIAT Groups standard maneuvers used to characterize the lateral dynamics behavior of a vehicle. It also provides parameters that heavily influence important objective handling evaluation indexes.
An experimental survey showed how different driving styles in the maneuver execution produced large dispersion in the calculated objective parameters. This would sharply reduce confidence in the handling quality indexes. To decrease these parameters dispersion, a study was performed to refine the maneuver execution and the data processing methods.
