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 (English)
Abstract [sv]

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.
