Steering Angle Correction for Kistler RoaDyn System 2000.

The Kistler ( RoaDyn System 2000 is widely used to measure and analyse static and dynamic wheel force on most types of wheeled vehicles from passenger cars and SUV’s to heavy goods vehicles, tractors and construction equipment.

Variations in the kinematic parameters of a vehicle can introduce measuring errors into the system, typically during steering through a bend or changes in the camber angle due to shock absorber compression. To allow these errors to be minimised, Kistler has introduced two ANI plug-in cards for the on-board electronics.

Changes in vehicle kinematics, measured by suitable sensors, can be fed into the analog inputs of the new cards to correct systematic measuring errors during real-time signal processing. The correction of system error provides an accurate analysis of the data produced by the RoaDyn System 2000 wheel force measuring system.
