At the 2022 Automotive Testing Expo in Novi, Michigan from October 25-27, Kistler is showcasing a portfolio of testing solutions including optical sensors and wireless wheel force transducers.
As new technologies are introduced, high-tech equipment is needed to ensure newly produced vehicles are ready for use and, more importantly, are safe for their occupants. Kistler’s proprietary solutions enable a wide range of tests to be conducted, including accurate measurement of fatigue strength, precise testing of tire endurance and wear, and wheel force and torque on test stands and real-world roads.
The technology on show at Kistler’s booth includes the KiBox2, the company’s complete combustion analysis solution for all types of vehicle powertrains. It provides calculated metrics on combustion quality and efficiency for each cylinder and provides key engine development data in real time.
Visitors can also experience Kistler’s Correvit S-Motion DTI sensors. These enable direct, slip-free measurement of longitudinal and transverse speed in addition to side-slip angle in vehicle driving dynamics tests. The Correvit technology enables the sensors to deliver a high level of accuracy and measurement frequency, a low adjustment effort at the vehicle and a short setup time. Furthermore, the solution does not require a running-in process.
Kistler’s range of electronics for use on crash test dummies is also on show and enables head angular rate and acceleration to upper and lower tibia force and moment measurements.
The company has also announced a commercial cooperation with Dynisma, a UK-based motion simulator technology business that produces an array of realistic and scalable driving simulator products. Dynisma’s technology enables integration with all vehicle models, tracks, terrains and visualization environments for a wide array of test applications. These include aerodynamics tests, ride and noise, vibration and harshness tests and vehicle dynamics tests.
Kistler and Dynisma are sharing a booth at the show.
