Measurement and data acquisition are central elements in the execution of safety and functional tests. The basis for the success and usability of the test in the product and vehicle development are the 100% reliability of the technology associated with the highest accuracy of the used sensors. Therefore ACTS uses, among other things, modern sensors, high-speed cameras and data acquisition modules.
