  Is is possible to measure wheel camber angle dynamically?

Yes. We demonstrate how you can accurately measure wheel camber, wheel force, and slip angle in an informative presentation from the 2007 Wheel Force Symposium at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum. Special thanks to Continental Tire AG Global Tire Evaluation for their support. Measurement instrumentation featured includes the Kistler Wheel Force Transducer and the DCA System which enables precision measurement of wheel camber angle while the vehicle is in motion.

ESP Testing
What is the recommended method of brake testing?

 Utilizing a Correvit® Optical Sensor (select a low filter time to decrease latency and increase precision). Utilizing an optional DAS-3 compact data acquisition system, you can tailor a brake test to automatically trigger start and stop, save data as ASCII files, and print-out results upon test completion. You can also see display test results upon completion.

How does the UC Processor deliver more accurate pitch and roll measurement than gyro platforms?

The 3-Axis measurement system uses three HF-500C height sensors and one Correvit S-350 Aqua Sensor to deliver precision measurement of vehicle pitch,roll speed in two axis, yaw rate, and vehicle slip angle relative to the vehicle center of gravity. This advanced measurement system is accurate on all test surfaces and maintains full measurement integrity, even on cambered and other non-flat surface planes.
