intentions were to check out the available components, their
performance where necessary and put together various building blocks to
assess the proposed concept’s viability. Certain aspects of
the original plan were dropped or altered as time went on, but
eventually a system was put together which successfully demonstrated
most of the features claimed for Tow Wizard.
project commenced by building a test rig (STR) to check out the
suitability of rubber bushes from the transport industry as spring
elements in the Tow Wizard 3 axis load sensor. The STR was ambitious in
its performance expectation ..............sensor design based on
capacitance proved to be excellent in its final microprocessor
interfaced version. The four sensors produced noise free, stable data
with high 16 bit resolution......... accelerometer from Memsic
.........digital compatibility and low noise...... easy to use and
stable in performance........................
