Riding comfort criteria

With the uprising era of highly automated or even fully autonomous vehicles, humans will take the role of an operator and, ultimately, a passenger. The vehicle handling criterion needs to be redefined for vehicle control systems purposes combined with riding comfort requirements. The newly defined specifications are based on a driving experiment performed on 6 DOF vehicle ride dynamics simulator. The results will be analyzed to further understand ride comfort and identify vehicle variables with the highest impact on comfort. The motivation is to find a correlation between the telemetry signals and the subjective evaluation of a human driver.
