Innovative measuring wheel for motorcycles

ROLSmc is the latest development in the area of wheel force measurement for two-wheelers. The high resolution and precision of the 6-component sensor enables both operational loads to be determined and driving dynamic investigations to be carried out.

Five 3-component strain gage measuring elements are arranged on the rotating side. These deliver the basic signals for the wheel force measurement. The data are acquired directly in the wheel hub and digitally processed. The individual signals are sampled at up to 50 KHz per channel in a high-performance DSP, which transforms the measurement values into a non-rotating system. The system configuration and the data output is done via a serial CAN interface.
