Control Characteristics of the Driver at Braking 720678

In order to determine the operational characteristics of human pedal force, a driving simulator consisting of a driver's seat, pedals, analog computer, double gun synchroscope, etc., was developed. The driver was asked to guide the spot representing the controlled variable using the spot as a target. A simple transfer function to match the test results was derived and the effect of parameters on the constants in this function was analyzed. This experiment established that a pedal force of 200 daN seemed best for control.
