If we know a track’s start and finish lines and the vehicle parameters, there are an infinite number of trajectories along which the vehicle can ride.
However, there is only one minimum time trajectory in which the vehicle is ridden to its physical limits by an ideal “optimal” rider.
This manoeuvre is called an "optimal manoeuvre", and it is performed by applying the vehicle’s “optimal” inputs, i.e. steering torque and propulsion/braking effort.

The "optimal manoeuvre" method allows us to measure effectively the vehicle’s manoeuvrability, i.e. the ability of the motorcycle to complete complex manoeuvres in the shortest possible times.
This is very important when designing a vehicle for a specific reason (for example, racing), when looking for the optimal value of a parameter (e.g. centre of mass position, gear ratios, etc.) or when comparing different vehicles.

Dynamotion provides analyses using the "optimal manoeuvre" method, as long as it is provided with the track geometry and the vehicle characteristics (the parameters of which can be either provided or measured by Dynamotion).
