Inclination monitoring on large vehicles like wheel loaders, dump, or lift trucks is particularly important in order to avoid damage to equipment or personnel. If these machines are used in uneven areas, a sharp turning angle in an inclined position can cause the vehicle to tilt. This risk is significantly increased for articulated wheel loaders or dump trucks with a very short turning radius.
The sharper the steering angle of the vehicle, the higher the risk of an accident. The steering angle has to be limited based on the vehicle's inclination. It is necessary to reliably monitor the overall inclination of the vehicle even during dynamic driving. External influences must not affect the measurement results.
The inertial measurement unit F99-Fusion detects vehicle inclination. It is ideal for this task, as external accelerations during braking, vehicle acceleration, or driving along curves can be compensated. Due to the intelligent combination of an acceleration sensor and a gyroscope, the F99-Fusion ensures compensation of external accelerations and enables high-precision inclination measurement. The steering angle can always be regulated in order to prevent vehicle tilt.
Due to the intelligent Sensor Fusion Algorithm, the inertial measurement unit F99-Fusion allows reliable inclination measurement even during dynamic movement. It is suitable for outdoor use (IP68/IP69K) and with E1 approval, also applicable in public road transport, personnel injury and equipment damage are reliably prevented.
