Handling Performance

E-mail Print PDF

Objective testing of handling performance on a dedicated vehicle dynamics area typically includes constant radius, slalom, single- and double-lane change, sine-steer and swept steer maneuvers.  Standard or custom test procedures are run based on customer needs and available facilities.  Closed course or race circuit testing is performed with similar instrumentation depending on the vehicle type and required data.

Sensor Set (typical)
 Steering Wheel Angle
 Steering Wheel Torque
 Yaw Rate
 Lateral Acceleration
 Height Sensors to estimate Vehicle Roll
 Vehicle Speed
 Vehicle Position

Output Data (sample, not all-inclusive)
 Roll gradient
 Roll damping
 Linearity
 Steering wheel torque gradients
 Pitch gradients
