	%X With the spread of EVs (electric Vehicles), the ride
comfort has been gaining a lot of attention. The influence of the lateral
acceleration is important for the improvement of ride comfort of EVs
as well as the longitudinal acceleration, especially upon turning of
the vehicle. Therefore, this paper proposes a practical optimal speed
control method to greatly improve the ride comfort in the vehicle
turning situation. For consturcting this method, effective criteria that
can appropriately evaluate deterioration of ride comfort is derived.
The method can reduce the influence of both the longitudinal and
the lateral speed changes for providing a confortable ride. From
several simulation results, we can see the fact that the method can
prevent aggravation of the ride comfort by suppressing the influence
of longitudinal speed change in the turning situation. Hence, the
effectiveness of the method is recognized.
