Abstract: This report outlines the development of a novel model for a single vehicle. The model uses a theory of a deformable medium which is known as a Cosserat point to model the deformation of the body of the vehicle. This theory is supplemented with various developments from vehicle system dynamics. The complete set of ordinary differential equations governing the vehicle's motion are presented and numerical simulations of the model under various operating conditions are discussed.
