Environmental concerns and increasingly stringent government regulations are driving the automotive Industry toward the use of new lighter weight material systems and an electrification of vehicle drive trains. These trends will create new design challenges that in turn will require new advanced methods for test, measurement and validation. Luna's high definition fiber optic sensing technology will help automotive manufacturers speed these new technologies to market while lowering the risk associated with the introduction of these new materials and processes.
- High definition data helps accurately characterize high strain or thermal gradients that can only be estimated with point sensing
- Fiber can reach hard to instrument places and at only 150 microns in diameter can be embedded in structures without influencing parameters under test
- Fine mesh finite element models of critical components can be validated with certitude
