SUBJECTIVE EVALUATION AND VEHICLE BEHAVIOR IN LANE-CHANGE MANEUVERS

Subjective evaluations are commonly used to assess the handling qualities of a vehicle. A statistical study indicates that the handling characteristics of a vehicle are closely associated with its behavior in lane-change maneuvers. On a test track various lane-change distances and offsets have been set up to study the effect of speed and lane-change angle on the rating. From these results, it is possible to ascertain objective data that contribute to the driver's subjective rating.
