progencarThe toolbox function PROGENCAR generates land vehicle profiles. Position (shown at right), velocity, and body angles, (shown below) are all generated. 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.
