The system was so efficient that multiple duplicate systems were ordered to further increase efficiency

 
 
 

Understand

Arvin Meritor is a global company that builds heavy trucks for the transport and logistics industry, working within a market that has a huge demand for highly efficient and safe heavy parts.

The brief was to create an expandable, universal test system for pneumatic braking systems used in heavy goods vehicles. The test system had to work on multiple product variants to allow for full verification at high precision, as well as harnessing the ability to control the breaking system at a specific ramp rate to the point where a specific torque could be created.

 
 
 
 

Engineer

The system would be dealing with multiple heavy parts and so safety was of utmost importance.

The test system was delivered on a modular test bed format where the elements to be tested could be installed, tested and adjusted. The test bed needed to work autonomously once installation was complete and run for many hours at a time for extended periods.

The system was custom built on top of the National Instruments LabVIEW™ environment in order that it could be highly customisable and expandable.

 
 
 
 

Deliver

The system met all requirements; in many areas it exceeded them. It was so efficient that multiple units have now been ordered by a variety of companies across the globe and it has been accepted as the standard by multiple brake manufacturers due to its reliability and expandability.
