Simulating longitudinal and lateral vehicle dynamics


Find out how you can simulate longitudinal and lateral vehicle dynamics using Vehicle Dynamics Blockset. Matlab explains how vehicle dynamics models can be created using two scenarios: an autonomous vehicle that needs steering input and longitudinal velocity to calculate the motion, and a race car that needs external forces to calculate the motion. The effect of dry and wet surfaces on the vehicle’s longitudinal, lateral and yaw motion can also be analysed.
