Ride Comfort

Ride comfort testing involves the application of vibrational loads to full vehicles, seats and other automotive systems and components through which vibration can be felt by a driver or passenger. As loads are applied, the test operator typically physically occupies the test specimen, providing subjective feedback on the ride comfort experience. Furthermore, MTS Remote Parameter Control (RPC®) features ISO 2631 routines for measuring and controlling an individual’s vibration exposure.

As ride comfort becomes increasingly important in vehicle designs, MTS offers the expertise and technology required to help you stay ahead of the competition through the accurate measurement and tracking of human vibrational exposure. Rather than performing evaluations of several vehicles traversing the same surface on the proving ground, you can reproduce exactly the same surface repeatedly in the test lab, for dramatic improvements in speed, precision and cost-efficiency. The MTS ride comfort test offering includes:

Industry-standard, “4-poster” tire-coupled road simulators
Reliable flat-belt roadway systems
Flexible, user-friendly software designed specifically for ride comfort evaluations, 
   with advanced operator safety features
Multiaxial simulation tables featuring high stiffness-to-mass ratios for maximum
   payload capacity
Digital controllers with high channel density, high capacity and superior configurability
Responsive global service and support, including cost-effective proactive 
   maintenance programs
