Using vehicle sensors to increase car safety and performance in regular passenger vehicles.
Loose wheels on vehicles is a common problem across the globe, leading to injuries, material damage, and even casualties. A loose wheel can exceed speeds of 100 km/h, causing accidents not only to the unfortunate car in question but also to other motorists or bystanders.
With increased car sharing, and autonomous vehicles around the corner, smarter vehicle diagnostics is quickly becoming a necessity. Loose Wheel Indicator is a software solution, combining the car’s existing sensors in a new, high-performance system.
NIRA Dynamics launched Loose Wheel Indicator together with Audi during 2017 and has since prevented accidents and damage in around 1 million vehicles.
The webinar will focus on how software can utilize the already existing sensors of a vehicle to create new value that can increase safety and performance. How can loose wheels be detected without the need of adding any hardware and what measures are taken to distinguish the difference between loose wheels and variations in road characteristics or other challenging input? What are the challenges to provide one software solution to cover a multitude of tires and rims of many sizes and dimensions?
If you decide to listen in, you will get to know a lot more about cutting-edge software development and learn about the future of predictive maintenance and automatic vehicle diagnostics. And of course, there will be time to answer more detailed questions on how to improve safety in future vehicles. We look forward to seeing you there!
