A&D brings over 30 years of experience in strain gauge technology and distributed force measurement to our line of high-accuracy model-based sensors for vehicle dynamics applications.
Vehicle Measurement System
The A&D Vehicle Measurement System is a collection of embedded controllers and high-accuracy sensors acquiring synchronized vehicle dynamics test data under various real-world conditions. It is completely modular and scalable, and can be…
Part of the A&D VMS system, the A&D wheel force sensor (WFS) is a high-accuracy, 6-axis wheel force measurement system for real-time measurement of forces (Fx, Fy, Fz) and moments (Mx, My, Mz) acting on the wheel hub under dynamic conditions.
The AD7832 Rotating Torque Sensor (RTS) leverages A&D’s experience in distributed force detection, high-speed telemetry and digital signal processing technology to enable non-contact torque measurement at high-speed with high resolution.
The A&D Force Matrix Sensor (FMS) measures the three component forces, longitudinal, lateral and radial, that occur where the tire contacts the road. A standard FMS unit consists of one row of 40 8mm2sensors embedded in a base plate.Units can be added as needed for larger tires.
Understanding vehicle behavior under real driving conditions is essential to optimizing the chassis and powertrain design. In particular, the growing demand for improved fuel economy and driving comfort requires optimizing the balance and performance of the vehicle.
Understanding vehicle behavior under real driving conditions is essential to optimizing the chassis and powertrain design. Ever-growing requirements for vehicle performance and fuel economy create many challenges for vehicle dynamics research.
