Abstract: This report documents the modification of a legacy human steering model with the addition of a new three-dimensional driving sensor model. The three-dimensional sensor model was developed to replace the two-dimensional sensor model in the original code. The report also covers the integration of the resulting modified human steering model with a vehicle dynamics model developed in commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) simulation software. The COTS software is called the Dynamic Analysis and Design System (DADS). In this study, the legacy model was adapted to interface with the current version of DADS. The modified human steering model was interfaced with a model of the high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle (HMMWV) in DADS. Experimental data exist for driving tests that use the HMMWV. These data were used to validate the integrated human steering model.
