Optimizing "off-road", and specifically farming, tire performance allows reducing energy consumption and soil compaction.
In-situ measuring devices, operating under usual usage conditions, are therefore required to: --Validate simulation results, --Understand and develop wheel-soil interaction models, --Evaluate the impact of the mechanical properties of soil on tire deformation.
On-board devices to measure tire deformation can be used to collect dynamic data typical of wheel-soil interactions while driving.
This integrated measuring device is fixed to the rim inside a tire. Each measurement taken is georeferenced using angle sensors that provide the angular position of the wheel and the measurement beam in real time.
- Areas: Agricultural equipment (deformation measurement, agricultural tires, 2D scans, 3D reconstruction
- An instrumented prototype incorporating the technology is available and operational.
- Patent deposit no. FR1751200
