MOTORCYCLE TESTING

NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT TO RIDER SAFETY

The Challenge:

  • Motorcycle testing including OEM, aftermarket and occupant safety testing
  • eXcentive needed to test a new motorbike fork design featuring a deformable quadrilateral overlap on the wheel vs. the traditional telescopic fork
  • Field test strain, acceleration and vibration on the Circuit de Nogaro race track in France
  • Extremely limited size, weight and space constraints for instrumentation
  • No complicated cable runs that could tangle or alter test dynamics at high track speeds
  • Instrumentation needed to be crashworthy

The Solution:

  • Ultra-small DTS data acquisition systems and sensors
  • eXcentive selected the miniature SLICE NANO that was mounted directly on the fork
  • A 6-channel NANO DAS module was positioned near the sensors, eliminating complicated cabling
  • The low mass, lightweight system did not alter test dynamics or center of gravity
  • No special housing required to protect the high-shock rated DAS
  • Store in place reliability, data writes directly to flash memory
  • Trusted complete solution provider and automotive safety testing experts
