Create track map using Lateral acceleration & speed in Matlab

  1. Mar 11, 2016 #1
    Hi I was wondering if someone could help with creating a track map using lateral accel and speed.

    More specifically the steps to the maths needed to plot the coordinates.

    I know how to find the curvature radius but not sure what the next step is.

    Long time no see! :smile:

    Are you familiar with calculus? And the relationship between position, velocity and acceleration? That's the approach that is usually used in this type of mapping...

    No I am not. I'm looking for some maths to help me understand
