Ideally, the load analysis begins with the planning of a measurement campaign in which the operating conditions occurring during subsequent customer operation are measured on a prototype. The selection of the operating conditions to be measured need not be representative for the later use, but only has to cover all relevant conditions (for example a truck driving fully loaded on a country road in a mountainous area).
Our Tool for Developing the Virtual Measurement Campaign VMC®
This can be supported by geo-referenced methods using VMC®. In the case of road vehicles, the result of this phase is a concrete route. The recorded data is then inspected, corrected if necessary and largely automatically segmented and classified with VMC® GeoLDA, i.e. broken down into operating states.
