Torque Vectoring Torque Vectoring makes it possible for the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio to increase the limits imposed by the tires during lateral acceleration.
The large central display visualises the longitudinal and lateral acceleration plus the steering angle with 'a photo-realistic motorsports graphic'.
The sensor cluster provides signals on roll and pitch rates plus lateral acceleration to help determine the angle at which a rider is leaning and checks the data around one hundred times per second.
The system allows agencies to view vehicle speed, seat-belt use, lateral acceleration, spins, yaw rates, use of pursuit mode, accelerator pedal position, brake pedal position, engine torque, antilock braking system events and stability/traction control events.
A lap time of just over two minutes and lateral acceleration of up to 1.
The first shows information like fuel consumption and headlight alignment, the second gives the driver-performance data such as longitudinal and lateral acceleration.
It can also store performance data, including 0-60mph acceleration and braking time from 60mph to standstill, plus G-force diagrams, showing longitudinal and lateral acceleration.
Mr Musk added: "It would have less lateral acceleration - which is what tends to make people feel motion sick - than a subway ride as the pod banks against the tube like an aeroplane.
It takes into account measures including steering input, engine speed, road speed, the transmission, throttle piston, brake pressure, yaw rate, and lateral acceleration.
The automatic damper adjustment switches to the firmer sports setting if the vehicle sensors detect that certain parameters such as speed, lateral acceleration and steering angle might lead to a critical handling situation and returns to the comfort mode when the driver reverts to a more moderate driving style.
Dynamic road wheel offset control automatically adjusts the road wheel angle based on a lateral acceleration signal (derived from the system gyro) for improved vehicle control when cornering at transport speeds.
On the other hand, the obtained new transition curves are compared with the most used transition curves (clothoid, sinusoidal and bloss) in highways with regard to curvature change, angle of deviation, superelevation, lateral acceleration and total curve length.
