Critical wheel force transducer measurements for electrical vehicle development
Electric vehicles (EVs) present exciting and often challenging parameters for vehicle measurement and development over their internal combustion engine (ICE) counterparts. EVs can generate higher loads, torques, lateral cornering forces and overturning moments than comparable ICE vehicles. It is vital that testing equipment evolves with EVs. Redesigned wheel force transducers (WFTs) aid in the development of the most durable and efficient EVs to ever exist. Michigan Scientific Corporation’s high-capacity WFTs are designed to accommodate the higher demands of EVs and provide insight into the latest vehicle testing technology.
