Advanced AB Dynamics K&C technology installed at Horiba MIRA

LinkedIn +

Horiba MIRA has enhanced its kinematics and compliance facility with new technology in suspension testing – fully integrated point location measurement.

The K&C Inspect system, powered by Aicon, uses twin photometric cameras to offer this measurement capability seamlessly during the K&C testing process, making it the most advanced AB Dynamics K&C test facility in the world.

The K&C Inspect system works by using small reflective targets that can be located in three dimensions with pinpoint accuracy and tracked at high frequency throughout a K&C test.

Applied to any surface on the vehicle in view of the cameras, the targets are used to measure component, chassis and sub-frame displacements and deformations. By using two Aicon Move Inspect cameras, up to 50 points can be measured simultaneously and the output recorded directly alongside K&C data.
