  • Effects on vehicle speed and side acceleration related to the location of the centre of rotation for banking of sharp curves, and influence of training: An experiment in a driving simulator
Subject(s): Online resources: Bibl.nr: VTI P1690:967Location: Abstract: Sharp curves constitute a significant safety risk. The question is if it is possible to design sharp curves in such a way that drivers pass them with greater safety margins? In this work we studied if the drivers´ choice of speed and side acceleration will change with the location of the centre of rotation for banking of sharp curves. Influence of training was studied by repetition of the first experimental session during each of the following three working days for all subjects. The study was carried out in VTI´s driving simulator (Model I). The results show firstly, that the location of the centre of rotation for banking of sharp curves influenced the drivers´ choice of speed and side acceleration and secondly, that these results were not influenced by training.
