DETERMINATION OF MOTOR VEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS AFFECTING DRIVER HANDLING PERFORMANCE. SUMMARY REPORT

Four representative vehicles used in a previous open-loop comparative study were tested with a sampling of volunteer drivers from the general public. The tests included pre-planned and simulated emergency maneuvers. Various vehicle input and response parameters were measured, and the results used to evaluate current open-loop test maneuvers and parameters. In addition, the degree to which this sampling of drivers utilized the full capability of the vehicles was determined.
