AB Dynamics has launched its most flexible and versatile steering robot model to date.
The Halo is AB Dynamics’ second direct-drive, hollow-centre model. It benefits from over 20 years of robot design evolution and patented technology, delivering both the high torque necessary to evaluate limit handling as well as precision, light-touch control needed for the latest ADAS tests.
The Halo uses a carbon fibre steering rim and innovative wrap-around design, allowing a 35% reduction in motor height compared to the Torus, improving driver ergonomics.
The use of a low-friction direct-drive motor and lightweight materials results in the lowest inertia and friction of any hollow-centre (airbag-compatible) on the market. The Halo's inertia is 8.5% lower than that of the Torus and open-loop motor friction is reduced by 30%. It is the ideal solution for a wide range of tests including the new Euro NCAP Emergency Steering Support (ESS) procedure.
