Development of High Performance Wheel Torque Measuring System and Its Applications 870642

The wheel torque measuring system (abbr. WTMS) has been developed for evaluating the torque applied to each wheel of automotive vehicles under actual running conditions. WTMS is a novel type system in which the torque signal is transmitted by a high-performance and compact photo-telemetric coupling system. Within the torque measurement range of ±2.94 kN·m, the resolution of torque output is ±1 N·m so that torque can be measured with an extremely high degree of accuracy. Therefore, measurements can be taken from the high torque applied in the case of a quick accelerating test or a sudden braking test to the measurement of a low amount of torque such as running resistance of a vehicle.
