Simulation of Racing Greyhound Kinematics

Md Imam Hossain, David Eager, Paul Walker

Abstract

This paper outlines greyhound dynamics results for yaw rate, speed, and the congestion pattern during a race derived through numerical modelling. The simulation results presented are also correlated to actual race data to validate modelling performance and reliability. The tasks carried out include the development of a numerical model for greyhound veering and race related supporting models, creating track 3D models replicated from actual survey data of the track, establishing a simulation environment that emulates an actual greyhound race, and the processing of both simulation and actual race data. The results show that greyhounds are susceptible to experience varying high acceleration in first five seconds into the race, during which a minimum average forward acceleration of 3.9 m/s2 was calculated, a peak yaw rate magnitude of 0.4 rad/s before the bend while transitioning into the track, and congestion during a race is affected by lure driving performance.
