Investigation of Vehicle and Driver Behaviour During Tyre Burst Using Driving Simulator

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering book series (LNME)


This paper deals with a vehicle motion and driver’s behaviour under a tyre burst situation. Phenomenon of a burst of tyre causes a severe accident. However, there are only few researches of the burst of tyre in the past. In this research, it is aimed for driver assist systems at the time of the tyre burst considering drivers’ behavior. As the first step for this purpose, this paper deals with drivers’ test using reactions of drivers’ at the burst on CarSim DS only with screen motions, not real shaking. Drivers’ steering behaviours and vehicle motions were investigated by the reactions of drivers’ at the burst on CarSim DS.
