Developing the Chassis Dynamometer as a Service Tool 830932
This paper reports development work undertaken by Mazda Motors to expand the usefulness of the chassis dynamometer as a tool for service staff. Engineering laboratory equipment in the form of a computer generated driving trace has been adapted to enable reliable and repeatable fuel consumption and part throttle performance testing. Present and possible future developments are discussed in efforts to effectively utilize the chassis dynamometer in the service workshop situation.
