Survey of vehicle handling

Vehicle handling research is necessary to determine the optimum vehicle characteristics for safety and precision of driving with the least workload demand on the driver. The most important fixed control parameters appear to be steering sensitivity, yaw response time, and stability factor. Optima of these have been found for specific driving tasks, but experimental work needs to be extended to cover more general driving conditions (a).
