Adams/SmartDriver Adams/SmartDriver 2 Adams/SmartDriver Adams/SmartDriver is an advanced driver simulator that can bring a vehicle to its dynamic limits or near targets you define. You must supply a path over which the vehicle will be driven and a target (either vehicle limits or user-defined limits). The typical Adams/SmartDriver application is for a single mini- maneuver for which you require maximum or target performance. Adams/SmartDriver lets you improve handling, durability, or ride performance of the verhicle model based on predicted performance Adams/SmartDriver computes. It gives you the ability to investigate system-level dynamics of the vehicle model, while requiring minimal setup. The following figure summarizes the Adams/SmartDriver internal architecture: Adams/SmartDriver calculates the speed profile using a built-in quasi-static solver. This solver can take into account tire limits, engine and brake system limits, as well as full load transfer and aerodynamics. The internal solver is a fast simplified vehicle model, with rigid suspensions. It inherits all vehicle data (initial conditions, geometry, inertial values, tires, and so on) from the full model, and integrates forward in time dynamics, taking into account inertial effects, load transfer, aerodynamics, and driver demands.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
