Single wheel hub motor failures and their impact on vehicle and driver behaviour

This research work studies the impact of single wheel hub motor failures on the dynamic behaviour of electric vehicles and the corresponding driver reactions. An experimental study in a moving-base driving simulator is conducted to analyse the...

A Lane-Change Gap Acceptance Scenario Developed for Heavy Vehicle Active Safety Assessment

The aims of this study were to develop a lane-change scenario for driving simulators in order to analyse the characteristics of lane-change manoeuvres performed with heavy vehicles. The scenario was set up based on information from lane-change...

Evaluation of a Run-off-Road Scenario for Driving Simulators used for the Assessment of...

The setup of a run-off-road scenario was based on the current knowledge about critical run-off-road situations and accidents. The scenario was initiated by a visual secondary task. During the task, an added clockwise yaw deviation, intended to...

Prepositioning of driving simulator motion systems

Motion base driving simulators have limited space in which to recreate the motions of the simulated road vehicle. Conventional motion cueing algorithms strive to centre the cabin in the simulator motion envelope to accommodate accelerations in a...

The Importance of Yaw Rotation Centre on the Driver Behaviour

Yaw motion feedback plays an important role for the perception of motion in driving simulators. This paper investigates the momentary rotation points’ importance on the driver behaviour, through a simulator experiment.A double lane change manoeuvre...

Design and performance of the VTI Sim IV

The VTI simulator IV (Sim IV) is the fourth advanced driving simulator designed and built at The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI). The simulator, taken into operation 2011, has an 8 degrees of freedom (DoF) moving base, a...

A Basic Vehicle Dynamics Model for Driving Simulators

Driving simulators are a useful research tool in studies of vehicle and transport-related human machine interface. A vital part of the driving simulator is the vehicle dynamics model. In the present paper, such a model is developed. The model...

Realism of overtaking situations in motion based driving simulators

The credibility of the research results of driving simulator studies is highly dependent on the realism that the simulator is capable of producing. A key component is therefore how realistic the driving is perceived by the drivers (test subjects)....

EDR Pre-Crash Data

Passive safety testing has been based on accident research where objective physical evidence can be compiled and analysed when establishing technical test requirements. Active safety tests pose new challenges because objective data is more difficult...
