Off-Highway Vehicle Sensing & Monitoring

Industrial/off-highway vehicles are often subject to ongoing stresses and wear, as well as challenging navigation over rough terrain that can ultimately undermine performance and longevity. Microstrain's inertial and wireless sensors allow for both vehicle inclination/angular position tracking as well as ongoing health monitoring. Inertial sensors are critical for angle sensing, vehicle position/incline monitoring and stabilization. Our wireless sensors enable monitoring critical vehicle component health to enable planned maintenance, maximize vehicle uptime, and reduce overall operation costs.

With Microstrain's integrated health monitoring systems, we can provide scalable solutions for tracking vehicle condition status without disrupting performance and operation. MicroStrain's feature-rich sensor designs deliver the reliability and accuracy needed to incorporate sophisticated inclination/angular position tracking and health monitoring capabilities into industrial/heavy-equipment/construction vehicles.
