Driving Dynamics

Driving dynamics is closely associated with the terms driving pleasure, driving safety and driving comfort. Resolving the conflicts between objectives which arise from these design targets requires a detailed examination of the dynamic system "vehicle" and its subsystems, right through to the overall system "driver-vehicle-environment".

At FKFS, we do this by using theoretical and practical investigations. Real and virtual vehicle driving tests, modeling and simulation and subjective-objective correlation supplement each other in turn, ensuring integrated and practice-relevant treatment of all kinds of questions; from concept development, development of control and assistance systems, right through to vehicle benchmarking. The human being is of primary consideration, since the end customer is the ultimate driver of the development process.
