This work studies the influence of the driver on the dynamic behaviour of a car-caravan system. A plane closed-loop 4-DOF linearised model was developed and the feedback was achieved with a compensation tracking model. The analysis of driver-car interaction was studied through the correlation of different ways of driving and effects on the dynamic response. Moreover, this work shows the influence on the stability of car speed and some design parameters such as the position of the caravan's centroid and cornering stiffness of the axle. The effects on the stability induced by different design choices were verified through the simulation of an obstacle avoidance manoeuvre.
