Purpose and goal

Aim was to find methods that enable an efficient process for objective vehicle dynamics evaluation for both early development and during vehicle validation, which is achieved and exemplified in many of the results. Based on knowledge of correlation between Obj. Metrics and Subj. Assessments the aim was also to develop new intelligent vehicle systems, which is partly achieved, more time has been spent on first part to gain more knowledge for the second.

Expected results and effects

13 publications have been written within the project giving a good knowledge base for future developments. The method that can predict SA from combinations of key OM can be used in early development for parameter analysis or optimization of SA profile for new vehicles. The tablet app is a tool developed that will make the evaluation process more effective as well as the SA have higher quality. New definitions and identifications of robust OM for winter conditions have also been proposed.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been conducted as an industrial PhD project with supervision and engagement from both Academia (KTH) and industry (Volvo Cars). The project has consisted a lot of planning, execution and analysis of experiments, both summer and winter tests as well as driving simulator studies.
