Lateral acceleration

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The lateral acceleration is a term from the driving dynamics . According to DIN ISO 8855, it is the component of the acceleration in the Y direction (transverse direction) of the horizontal, vehicle-fixed coordinate system. It differs from the centripetal acceleration by the cosine of the side slip angle . In normal cornering, this difference is very small.
