Automobile Profile Generator

Toolbox Function PROGENCAR

Using the INS Toolbox for MATLAB, you can use the toolbox function PROGENCAR to generate land vehicle profiles. Position (graph at right), velocity, and body angles, (graphs shown below) are all generated with the PROGENCAR function. With PROGENCAR the user can specify straight segments with constant velocity or constant acceleration and can generate constant radius turns. Paths are generated in a horizontal plane. The function generates paths in a locally-level coordinate system. Additional functions are provided to allow the user to convert (shown below) to a rotating earth-referenced coordinate system.
