Automotive End of Line–Wheel Alignment, Headlamp Aiming, Roll & Brake Testing

Fori China recently designed, built and integrated an end of line system for an automotive manufacturer.

Features:

  • Jobs Per Hour: 15 jobs
  • Testing Completed: Wheel alignment, headlamp aiming, roll and brake
  • Results: Increased production rate, reduced labor, improved quality

The end of line system was included: non-contact wheel alignment, automatic headlamp aiming, and roll and brake testing.

The Wheel Alignment machine is designed for automatic measuring and manual adjustment of the vehicle parameters.  The system was designed to measure Toe & Camber with a wide range of wheel bases, tread width, and tire sizes.

An integrated headlamp aimer measures the vehicle headlight intensity and position automatically and guides the operator to adjust the lamp position semi-automated. The “Fori Vision” aiming unit utilizes a camera based system to measure the intensity and position of the headlight.

Roll and brake testing is also completed on the end of line system, which includes testing for acceleration, cruise control, transmission, rear gear, dynamic braking and engine.

End of Line Testing–Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Fori Korea supplied an Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) to accommodate several vehicle platforms and test a variety of safety features.

Features:

  • Safety Testing: Lane departure warning, automatic headlights, over speed prevention, traffic signal recognition, distance warning
  • Results: Decreased infrastructure, increased production rate, accommodation of future vehicle models

ADAS test benches certify the operation of the vehicle cameras related to Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Automatic Head Lights (AHL), Over Speed Prevention (OSP), Traffic Signal Recognition (TSR) and Distance Warning (DW).

The ADAS system also validates functionality of the vehicles radar system which detects the moving elements in front of the vehicle from a significant speed and the operation of the vehicle. Examples include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW).

Another test completed by the ADAS is the AVM (Around View Monitor). This process is completed with four cameras (front, rear, two for side mirrors) and then displays the image captured by the cameras to the operator in their cones of vision (e.g., help for the blind spots, help for the car parking).

The ADAS system has reduced the infrastructure required for the various sensor testing that is completed on production vehicles. The system allows multiple tests to be completed in one station.
