Abstract: The paper attempts to provide an integrated framework for the objective assessment of the transient handling responses of non-linear vehicles. The ultimate aim of the proposed framework is the characterization of such responses as neutral or under/over-steering. A new methodology is employed, which has previously been applied for the classification of the transient response of linear vehicles. The success of the proposed method is judged based on its robustness, the consistency of the results, and their practical implications. Furthermore, the results are compared with the findings of traditional approaches for the characterization of the steady-state and transient handling behaviour. The corresponding discussion reveals the agreement between the approaches, but also highlights the slightly different definition of the neutrally steering vehicle, as perceived by the proposed method.
