- the vector quantity expressing the acceleration of a point in the vehicle relative to the Earth-fixed axis system (x,y,z). The following motion variables are components of this vector, resolved with respect to the moving vehicle axis system:- lateral acceleration; - longitudinal acceleration; - normal acceleration; - side acceleration.
