Tire Friction Testing (TFT)

Tire test through a vehicle platform and prediction of grip.

The purpose of this project is to develop and enable a new type of test tasks for testing tires to a vehicle. The customer is probably a tire manufacturer or a smaller car manufacturer. The customer can for instance receive a statement of how the vehicle works with the prospective OEM tire under different conditions.

One can also imagine a service where the contractor proposes tires for a specific market, such as the Nordic with a variation of what region you should preferably use the vehicle, but also in view of possible situations. You may for instance want accessibility to a cottage.

Project leader: Niclas Engström

The TFT research project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund's AVTEC project.
