Tyre measurement trailer

A single-axle tire measurement trailer has been developed by the Automotive Engineering department to analyze the frictional behavior of tires on dry and wet roads:

Definite adjustment options for wheel position variables, Large variation of different wheel loads, Highly dynamic tire inflation pressure system allows control of the internal tire pressure, Electric servo-hydraulic brake system for realizing brake slip, Measurement data acquisition and control software for controlling the brake system is realized using LabVIEW Realtime (CompactRIO real-time system), Wheel force sensor Kistler RoadDyn S635 allows precise and highly dynamic recording of forces and moments
