A SURVEY OF LONGITUDINAL ACCELERATION COMFORT STUDIES IN GROUND TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES

Experimental studies of objective and subjective passenger response to various fore-and-aft, or longitudinal, vehicle acceleration transients are reviewed. It is found that the wide variability in type of study and form of results does not allow conclusive statements to be made regarding passenger acceptability of any specific acceleration - jerk profile in a given transportation system.
