Study of Vehicle Steering and Response Characteristics in Simulated and Actual Driving 780011
The effects of various combinations of vehicle steering torque gradient, control sensitivity, and lateral acceleration response time on driver-vehicle performance were investigated. Three subjects performed regulation tasks on two facilities (driving simulator and variable response vehicle) under identical disturbance inputs. The performance trends were essentially the same on both facilities, and significant interactions among the three vehicle characteristics were observed.
