DETERMINATION OF MOTOR VEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS AFFECTING DRIVER HANDLING PERFORMANCE

Volume I, the Technical Report, states that 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. Volume II, the appendices, contain exhibits, data, graphs, test plans, and test procedures pertinent to this study. /Author/
