AUTOMOBILE CONTROLLABILITY. DRIVER/VEHICLE RESPONSE FOR STEERING CONTROL. VOLUME I. SUMMARY REPORT

The report describes an applied research program aimed at identifying those characteristics of the driver/vehicle system which influence the driver's ability to maintain control over vehicle path in a variety of steering tasks. Program objectives include comprehensive measurements of driver and vehicle responses and the quantification of optimum driver/vehicle system characteristics as functions of simplified vehicle dynamic properties and task durations. To accomplish this, fixed-base simulation, and road tests were used for compensatory steering tasks, while road test results were emphasized in discrete and transient maneuvers.
