RENAULT F1 use KISTLER ROADYN V6F1 measuring wheels.
The Renault F1 team are using a specially developed version
of the Kistler RoaDyn Measuring Wheel System to gather data
about the real-time performance of its Grand Prix car. During
testing, the measuring wheels are fitted in place of the standard
wheels and the 6-component forces and moments are transferred
to the on-board data logger.
Renault F1 and Kistler have optimised the RoaDyn measuring
wheel design through extensive testing, utilizing the resources
of both Renault F1 and Kistler.
Kistler Instruments is one of the worlds leading manufacturers
of piezoelectric and piezoresistive precision sensors covering
acceleration, force, pressure and torque. Established in
Wintherthur (Switzerland) in 1957, Kistler is represented in over
50 countries and has subsidiaries in Germany, France, Italy, UK,
Japan, USA, China, Korea and Singapore.
Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff
worldwide are engaged in research and development, has
generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric,
piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions
to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems.
These innovations include the world's first commercial quartz sensor,
two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with
microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for
use up to 400 deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
