Very vague and simple lateral model!
Moreover, it does not work due to undefined parameters!

Hi Marc, the IN1 is the steering angle in degree. the OUT1 and OUT2 are lateral acceleration and yaw rate respectively

Dear friends, vaibhav, and Marc,
3 DOF is not as same as 3-D. The former refers to the number of degrees of freedom where you can describe your object. In this file, they are x, y, and yaw-angle of the CG of the car. The latter refers to the modeling of the car in 3-dimensional. It is said if you model your car in 3-D, and assume that the car is rigid, then there are 6 degrees of freedom associated with that body, (x, y, z, yaw-angle, roll-angle, and pitch-angle).

2 DOF only

Marc Ayache

Hard to understand, what's the single input IN1 ? The OUT1 must be the lateral acceleration and OUT2 is the yaw acceleration so it's a 2DOF Model ?
