Vehicle road tests are often a prerequisite for practice-relevant theoretical investigations, since they serve as a data source for model formation, parameterization and validating vehicle models.
Although for some problems the interaction between driver and vehicle can already be investigated using simulation, for most questions, vehicle road tests often remain the only possibility of incorporating the driver into the "driver-vehicle-environment" closed control loop.
The vehicle road test represents an evaluation criteria, and therefore offers the option of benchmarking activities considering subjective aspects as well as objective aspects. FKFS has a comprehensive range of driving dynamics instrumentation which is also available for customer projects. FKFS offers consulting services for such projects, as well as the equipping of the vehicles with appropriate instrumentation.
