This unique deployment by Kiwa KOAC of the LCMS technology involves the installation of LCMS sensors on the front of the vehicle instead of the rear in order to support the simultaneous operation of SCRIM technology; an industry first.
The biggest challenges when integrating all subsystems into one vehicle were not only handling the enormous amount of data (3-5 GB per kilometre; production capacity up to 300 km/day), but also the positioning of the various sensors. “These sensors had to be mounted in such a way that none of them influenced any other in a negative way”. “For instance, the water track created during skid resistance testing must not affect the 3D laser scanners, which need a dry road surface to operate correctly.” says Eelke Vromans, unit manager Road Testing – Kiwa KOAC.
