A new method for the “horizontal and vertical curve negotiation angle calculation” is developed and presented in this paper. The new method greatly reduces the complexity of the current procedure while maintaining the accuracy of the final result. An example is given to illustrate the difference between the current and the alternate method. The accuracy of the new method is shown as well. Discussion and conclusions are given in the final part of this paper.
