New design of a road profiler
MetadataShow full item record
Macro and micro road profiles are of significant importance for vehicular motion studies, reliable calculations of vehicle system properties, and ensuring vehicular safety. As such, road profiles should be considered carefully. Macro profiles consider the spatial geometry of the road (curves, longitudinal and lateral slopes) while micro profiles consider roughness in longitudinal and lateral directions. These profiles have random characteristics that can be quantified under onroad and off-road conditions using a road profiler. This paper presents an analysis of a new concept for a universal profiler without gyroscopic stabilizers.
