Introduction to Vehicle Dynamics
Today’s and tomorrow’s vehicles are based on various principles and travel with very different speeds. For a first classification of all kinds of vehicles the support and propulsion principles are used. The support mechanism has to balance the gravity acting on vehicles and the propulsion generates the forward speed, Fig. 1.
