Measuring the distance from the road in motor racing
In motor racing, the smallest details can often make the difference between success and failure. Not only the ability of the driver, but also a perfect car setup are critical factors. In order to optimize the latter, ride-height sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used. Live data can be acquired during the race, which can be used to optimize car set up.
Mücke Motorsport relies on ILD1420 laser triangulation sensors from Micro-Epsilon when the distance from the road needs to be measured. The measurement values acquired are calculated using the damper travel of the vehicle. Therefore, the deformation of the tire in different road sections and situations can be determined.
