Automobile Design & Development

A car emits a large amount of heat. A TVS system can be used during the development of cars, to measure the temperatures of various parts of the automobile.

The real-time measuring capability of TVS is applied for measuring the temperature of tyres and brakes in highspeed temperature transition processes. The photos beside show the instantaneous temperature transition process of road surface, as a result of the friction between tyre and road surface on braking to stop the car.

Applications for thermal imaging within automobile design and development include:

  • Brake control;
  • Defrosting process;
  • Rear window heating;
  • Engine surveillance;
  • Radiator control;
  • ...
