K&C Testing Advances Vehicle Dynamics Programs

Are you a production car engineer? With today’s compressed timelines and tight budgets Morse Measurements provides fast accurate results to feed your vehicle dynamics program. Whether you are focusing on stability, ride quality, benchmarking, validation, or vehicle dynamics simulation – comprehensive kinematics and compliance (K&C) test data is indispensible. We also offer damper characterization and coordinate measurements, all in one visit. Morse Measurements can provide the suspension input parameters for a wide range of simulation software. For some, such as CarSim, we have developed a fully automated import. We take pride in concise reporting that is easy to use and understand.

Feed the actual forces and motions experienced on-road (including steering inputs and loads) into the car on Morse Measurement’s $3 million K&C machine – an Anthony Best Dynamics SPMM 4000, the same 4 wheel station machine used by OEM automakers around the world. It is the only commercially available test machine in North America that can apply cornering, braking, and tractive forces at the tire contact while acquiring over 300 channels of highly accurate suspension measurements. Our relentless development has led to powerful analysis and reporting tools, unparalleled in the industry, that provide accurate and detailed results in real time. Morse Measurements experienced staff has the expertise to quickly interpret results, identify problems, and provide inputs for vehicle dynamics simulations.
