This paper presents an analysis of driver/vehicle performance over a range of maneuvering conditions including accident avoidance scenarios involving vehicle limit performance handling. Driver behavior is considered in the same dynamic analysis terms as vehicle response in order to give appropriate closed-loop measures of total system maneuvering capability and handling stability. A driver control structure is developed along with closed-loop system stability constraints on model parameters over a wide range of vehicle maneuvering conditions. Example simulation runs are presented for several accident avoidance scenarios.
