Fundamental Study of Jerk: Evaluation of Shift Quality and Ride Comfort 2004-01-2065
A thorough study on the physiological experience of jerk is made in this work. Referring the physiological feeling, we classified the jerks into two groups, which are transient jerks and durative jerks, and made a series of experiments for research. The experiment method is detailed in the literature. By reviewing the experiment results, we discussed the current quantifying methods of jerk and proposed a comprehensive method using magnitude of jerk and root mean square (rms) jerk for evaluating the shift quality and ride comfort. All the conclusions and proposals we made in this work are supported by experiment data.
