Tire-Coupled Road Simulation, Then and Now
 
First introduced in 1964 by MTS, the tire-coupled road simulation system immediately proved itself as a critical tool for the development of durable ground vehicles. As the vehicle market evolved, demanding fewer rattles and greater ride comfort, the road simulation systems were updated to meet these new testing requirements.

Where this technology will go next depends on the current market need. Factors such as the controls expertise MTS exhibits in new applications or the ease with which customers will be able to set up and run MTS test equipment, will determine the course of the technology progression. Sterling Anderson, MTS product manager, discusses the past, present, and likely future of tire-coupled road simulation technology.
