This paper refers to the Variable Dynamic Testbed Vehicle (VDTV) concept as a tool used in evaluating collision avoidance systems and performing driving-related human factors research. Focus is on determining to what extent a VDTV with adjustable front and rear anti-roll bar stiffnesses, programmable damping rates, and four-wheel steering can emulate the lateral dynamics of most passenger vehicles.
