Vehicle dynamics depends heavily on the tire characteristics. Accordingly, a number of tire models were developed to capture the tire behaviors. Among them, the empirical tire models, generally obtained through lab tests, are commonly used in vehicle dynamics and control analyses. However, these models explain static tire behaviors and overlook the behaviors during transients. They often do not reflect the actual dynamic interactions between tire and vehicle under real operational environments, especially at low vehicle speeds. For example, such models do not predict the vehicle longitudinal overshoots and oscillations immediately after stopping a vehicle with hard braking.The system parameters of a passenger car in Appendix B are used to plot the diagram. ... This indicates that under normal driving conditions the suspension mode does not play a crucial role in longitudinal comfort since its vibration at the anbsp;...
