VEHICLE LATERAL CONTROL AND SWITCHING. VOLUME VI. SOFTWARE MANUAL
In this report, a description of the software developed for the VLACS project for study of AGT vehicle lateral control and switching systems is discussed. A simulation employing a ten-degree-of-freedom vehicle model for ride quality analysis and a simulation employing a three-degree-of-freedom vehicle model for lateral control studies are described. Also included is a description of the VLACS switching system analysis program.
