This offers a variety of readings including lateral acceleration, fuel consumption and suggested gear shift points.
Organised in four screenshots, the information on display changes according to the DNA mode selected by the driver, offering a variety of readings including lateral acceleration, fuel consumption and suggested gear shift points.
The application includes an on-board 'instrument' to show lateral acceleration (a G-meter), oil and coolant temperature gauges, a chronometer and a compass.
Nevertheless, during track maintenance, the value of rated superelevation is no longer important unlike uncompensated lateral acceleration as superelevation excess, superelevation deficiency expression, equilibrium superelevation and balanced speed.
Speed, lateral acceleration, transverse acceleration, steering angle, trip slip, road surface, and yaw rate are either measured directly or inferred from available data to continuously vary the torque split, and a GT-R-specific yaw-rate feedback control looks at the difference between driver input and the actual yaw rate to fine-tune the split.
The simulator tests yaw, camber, and response to braking, jouncing, vertical acceleration, and lateral acceleration, Ingalls said.
ESP, as it is widely known, works like this: it compares the driver's intended course, via steering angle and braking sensors, to the car's actual course by lateral acceleration, yaw and wheel speed sensors on each of the four wheels.
The map-controlled front-to-rear lock and optional rear axle differential lock respond to reduced traction at any wheel and to factors such as vehicle speed, lateral acceleration, steering wheel angle and operation of the gas pedal to determine optimum lock at both axles and distribute power as required.
"Lateral acceleration exposure of commercial vehicle tires," C.
Sensors measure the lateral acceleration and detect tilting tendencies early on.
This condition is written in terms of maximum lateral acceleration, relative to gravity.
If a vehicle is capable of dealing with this curvature considering dynamic limitations in steering wheel angle and lateral acceleration, it will be also capable of handling any trajectory with D > W.
