Automobile Braking Performance Measurement System

This system is used to measure the braking performance of cargo vehicles. The system can be applied up to large-sized trucks for stand-alone brake units, and up to medium-sized trucks for actual vehicles. Various tests can be performed using this system, such as continuous downhill tests based on the New Hakone Road, repetitive braking tests, and continuous braking tests.
