Abstract

The lateral motion of vehicles is discussed separately for road and rail vehicles. Due to different constraints both kinds of vehicles require dynamical approaches different from each other. In contrary to automobiles equipped with actively operated steering, railway vehicles have a passive lateral guidance. For automobiles driving stability is achieved or improved, respectively, by interplay of the driver and the vehicle.
