Data Acquisition and Testing Study 710818

This paper describes the initial stages of a study of the use of automatic controls in the development testing of diesel engines.
In the possible levels of automation, the full range involved runs from something below the present level to a fully computerized system operating engines through all the required test programs, and producing documented reports on the results as output.
The optimum level of automation with regard to technical and operational requirements is analyzed, and the preliminary results from a pilot computer-controlled test-bed are presented.
