Brake pedal displacement measurement with AR200's from Acuity


distance measurement with Acuity sensorsThe AR200 is particulary suited for automobile testing applications. In one case, a large car company used the AR200 laser measurment sensor to measure the displacement of a brake pedal while a driver's foot depressed it. The short standoff distance and compact size of the distance sensor made it simple to install behind the pedal. As the pedal was moved, its position was recorded by the laser sensor and transmitted to an analog data acquisition system.

The fast sampling speed also allowed the engineers to measure the speed of hitting the brakes.

AR200 sensors can also be used to measure engine fan belt vibration and motor vibration.
