Renault believes that the behavior of the vehicle must always be
consistent with the instantaneous orders given by the driver,
whether braking, accelerating or lifting the foot off the
accelerator. The vehicle must also inform its driver when it is
near a point of limit.
The first part of this paper details the vehicle with respect to
its trajectory at stabilized speeds. The rigidity of the overall
drift of the axle assemblies and tires, the steering angles induced
by vehicle roll attitude, under- and over-steering behavior and
vehicle roll attitude, under- and over-steering behavior and
behavior of the tire under load are covered. A vehicle trajectory
model is used to confirm test results.
