Road Load Data & Analysis

Collecting data on the proving ground.

At MIRA road load data means far more than collecting data, information is the key. MIRA’s highly experienced team specialise in all aspects of vehicle instrumentation, data collection and data analysis ensuring that information is available to designers, modellers and analysts. But most importantly the team use the data for further in house analysis. Typical work undertaken includes:

  • General road load data collection
  • Rig drive signal collection/derivation/acceleration
  • Durability analysis
  • Failure investigation and solution design/prototyping
  • Cause and effect investigation
  • Airbag misuse testing
  • Remote data collection (customer usage collection/ long term logging)
  • Customer usage profiling
  • Correlation (PG to PG or public road to PG)
  • Analysis of customer data
  • Independent trials/test monitoring
  • Data verification and repair

A wide spectrum of data analysis is undertaken enabling MIRA to turn bulk data in to information to inform and guide the customer to a solution. These include:

  • Basic signal statistics
  • Power/amplitude spectra
    Data acquisition equipment.
  • Range mean cycle counting
  • Frequency analysis
  • Fatigue editing
  • Fatigue life analysis/prediction
  • Correlation
  • Powertrain analysis
  • Customer usage profiling

MIRA is world renowned for the development of correlated durability cycles. MIRA have developed cycles for vehicles ranging from mini diggers to passenger cars and heavy trucks for markets such as Europe, Middle East and China. Once correlated the data generated from these cycles underpins the whole vehicle development process ensuring the design, simulation, validation and sign off is appropriate and representative of the intended market to ensure a high quality and reliable product.
