Operating and Presentation
The CFME operator controls and
monitors the New Generation (NG) system through a 10.5 inch rugged touchscreen
computer. The NG system is windows-based
for ease of operation and integration with optional equipment, e.g. GPS system with
a map view, ambient and surface temperature sensors and a GPRS modem for live data
via the internet!
Access to the NG system is acquired by a login security system (personal ID/code). There are four levels of access for the
operator, depending on what tasks are assigned by the administrator. The NG system records all calibration actions
and friction measurements by operator name and date!
Communication, between the operator’s
PC and the measurement computer, is transferred via wireless Bluetooth (a
proven robust communication technique).
An electrical cable connection from the CFME trailer to the towing
vehicle is not required!
Measurement Display / Data Formats
The operator chooses how to view the
collected data: Tabular format, Graph
format or as a color-coded Map view overlaid in a mapping service application
(for instance Google maps). We can
incorporate a map of your choice that is specific to your infrastructure!
After a measurement run is completed, the system displays a summary which enables
you to quickly overview the collected data.
The operator can choose: Summary
view, tabular data every 10 meters, graph view or a map view with data overlaid
via GPS points on the map!
After Measurement / Easy Data Distribution
Data is automatically stored in the
operating PC. Click on the Send Email button for direct distribution of data
files following the measurement run to predetermined email addresses. Measure data can also be viewed in real time or
historically on any computer with an internet connection!
