Spoke type load cells are very important in automatic driving.

In recent years, driverless cars have been a hot topic, and related reports have been seen frequently. At one time, it attracted the attention of all parties in the society. Automakers also showed great interest in this and joined the camp of R&D cars. And some companies like Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Tesla have even launched their original models. Unmanned driving seems to be no longer a fictional concept for us. Its implementation is inseparable from spoke-type load cells .

To achieve automatic driving, the first thing to solve is how to improve safety. Again, this is a big part of the R&D process. In order to allow the car to travel safely and safely on the road, it must be equipped with a pair of "eyes" with good vision and a clever "brain". The various "eyes" that make up these "eyes" are all kinds of different sensors and inductive measuring devices.


For any series with automatic navigation or guidance, the primary requirement is automatic positioning. Once only the current position is clarified, the "action" to be carried out in the next step can be judged according to the current situation. Therefore, GPS and inertial navigation modules are essential in driverless cars. Not only that, but the driverless car also put forward higher requirements. Especially in the accuracy of positioning. Because of a small positional error, it is very likely that the car will fall off the cliff on the mountain road or the collision angle sensor will be caused by the vehicle that should be avoided.

However, the location is still far from enough. The driverless car needs to be able to detect any objects that will collide with it during driving and make evasive to ensure the safety of the personnel inside the car. Image sensors and radar detection devices are usually installed at key parts of the car. Among them, the data collected by the image sensor can be used to analyze dangerous "obstacle" and its distribution with the help of software algorithms. The radar device can detect the terrain of the surrounding environment, the shape and speed of the moving objects, and further provide safety for automatic driving.

In fact, even if you do this, it is not enough for practical applications. The development of autonomous driving technology also requires more sensor technology and support from more advanced software or intelligent algorithms. Only by letting more sensors be added to the "eyes" can we eliminate the shortcomings of "small feet and long lengths", allowing the automatic driving to smoothly ride the load cell.

The realization of driverless cars is inseparable from the spoke-type load cells. Through the above description, do you have a deeper understanding of driverless cars?
