VDSE (Vehicle Dynamics Simulation Environment) is a tool that predicts the acceleration, braking, cornering and ride behaviour of four-wheeled vehicles with independent suspension. The tool includes a 14 Degrees of Freedom (DoF) sprung/unsprung vehicle model, including three different tyre formulations, a driver model, powertrain model, brakes model and road input. The tool is developed under MATLAB and Simulink and aimed at being user friendly and modular by allowing the user to easily modify or change any of the provided equations and subsystems. Furthermore, the inherent modularity of the model makes it ideal for testing active systems (such as active aerodynamics, 4WS, torque vectoring, ESP, ABS etc.), implementing different suspension models (air springs, adaptive damping, hydropneumatic suspension etc.), implementing different powertrain models (hybrid, electric, fuel cell etc.) and more. This tool has been created with the goal for it to be fast to run making it suitable to be used as a plant for controller design and running design of experiments or optimization of a specific subsystem or even the whole vehicle.
