Vehicle Dynamics Laboratory

The mission of VDLAB (Vehicle Dynamics Laboratory) is to establish technologies for the development of preferable, easy-to-use, comfortable, suitable vehicles for both of drivers and passengers. Research subjects are concerned with vehicle dynamic analysis with multibody simulation, stability and ride control, hardware-in-the-loop testing system with real-time simulation, monitoring technique with electric vehicle, handling evaluation with considering the stiffness of body structure, and so on. Electrical vehicle and tire-suspension testing system, which are originally developed in our laboratory, are used for these researches.
