This model shows how to represent vehicle and suspension dynamics with Simscape Multibody. The entry supplements the MATLAB and Simulink Racing Lounge video "Vehicle Modeling, Part 4: Simscape Multibody"
The model offers a visualization of the system response. The Contact Forces Library is used to model
contact between the wheel and the floor. The focus here is system-level vehicle and suspension modeling.

Thank you. But how do I load the edited mat file back into the model?
To get these values, follow these steps. Model Explorer-> Vehicle Dynamics3D -> Model Workspace -> dwb -> Right Click -> Export Selected
Once you export the data, you can save it as a mat file. Please note that dwb is a structure.
Thanks for the model. I looked into the model and had a few doubts. How do I change the parameters like dwb.knuckle.wheelattachprojwidth or wheel.tire.innerradius and other variable values. I am unable to find the main data file.
Hi Dinesh, we recorded this video as basis for the files at hand: https://www.mathworks.com/videos/matlab-and-simulink-racing-lounge-vehicle-modeling-part-4-simscape-multibody-1508365817599.html.
Hope this helps. Feel welcome to ask further questions on MATLAB Answers forum and ping us the question-URL.
We are trying to understand the entire blockset, but input is still mystery, can you help?
Thank you for the model!
I wonder is there way to define current steer angle in this model?
