The prediction in the design phase of the stability of ground vehicles subject to transient crosswinds
become of increased concern with drag reduced shapes, lighter vehicles as well as platooning.
It also has a Crosswind

The system consists of four wings with oscillating flaps for generating gusty crosswinds
in wind tunnel experiments.
It was also identified that the approach to St Helena was likely to lead to aircraft encountering significant crosswinds
and low-level turbulence on occasions, and advised that a mechanism for relaying accurate crosswind
and tailwind information was required, for both pilots and air traffic control units.
