Recording of road surfaces
Since the distance from the road surface can be measured during movement of the vehicle, the opposite, namely the detection of road conditions and surfaces is also possible. This is important for the test stand simulation for which as accurate information as possible about the real road conditions of test courses is required to perform a practice-oriented simulation. In addition, knowledge of road surfaces is an important parameter in the development of tyres and active chassis’ for series vehicles.
A specially developed vehicle licensed by the Federal authorities enables measurement of the longitudinal and transverse profile of the road for documenting the nation-wide condition of roads.
