Automobile Profile Generator:
The toolbox function PROGENCAR generates land vehicle profiles.
Position (shown above), velocity, and
body angles, are all generated.
With PROGENCAR the user can specify straight segments with constant
velocity or constant acceleration and can generate constant radius turns.
Paths are generated in a horizontal plane.
The function generates paths in a locally-level coordinate system.
Additional functions are provided to allow the user to convert
to a rotating earth-referenced coordinate system.
