Road simulator on rotating rollers for real fatigue testing of mechanical components in buses, trucks and trailers
"A highly efficient solution was created for deterministic performance, redundant security and low installation and maintenance costs."
- Stefano Vianelli, EURINS
The challenge: Realize the entire automation and data acquisition system for a test system capable of subjecting heavy vehicles to real heavy work situations to study their mechanical problems.
The solution: Develop an architecture based on an NI PXI Real-Time node, three NI CompactRIO nodes and a computer with OS Windows to distribute measurements, calculations and implementations at strategic points of the system, minimizing cabling and locating intelligence.
