The drift-pull steering measurement system from Sensor Developments allows vehicle manufacturers to accurately measure the effects of drift pull caused by wheel alignment errors. With this sensor system, operators can measure and record drift-pull torque and angle, allowing them to determine whether the vehicle has been properly aligned prior to its shipment to auto dealerships. The system features an integrated torque and angle measurement with a quick attachment to the vehicle’s steering wheel. A USB-compatible connection powers and acquires the data from the sensor and turns a laptop computer into a portable data-acquisition system.
