An automated test driver (ATD) has been developed which is capable of executing dynamic test maneuvers with accuracy and repeatability beyond the ability of a human driver. This system enables any production car or light truck to follow a user-defined path or to perform specific steering sequences with excellent repeatability. Combined with an automated brake and throttle controller, capable of matching a desired velocity profile as well as providing specific test inputs with acceleration or other feedback, this system provides a powerful tool to improve vehicle dynamics testing.
