Research on Vehicle Dynamics Simulation for Driving Simulator
In order to fulfill the requirement of vehicle dynamics performance and real-time capability in driving simulator, modeling and simulation method of a four-wheeled vehicle model based on multi body dynamics software Vortex was studied. Fundamental construction and dynamics properties of the model such as body, chassis, wheels, power train, suspension and tyre model were described. The model was tested to simulate on the C grade of road. The results indicate that the model and simulation method can well represent vehicle dynamics performance and high real-time capability of simulation, and is worthy to apply to driving simulator in the future.
