Current Collector for Heavy Vehicles on Electrified Roads: Field Tests
2016 (English)In: Journal of Asian Electric Vehicles, ISSN 1348-3927, Vol. 14, no 1, 1751-1757 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We present the field tests and measurements performed on a novel current collector manipulator to be mounted beneath a heavy vehicle to collect electric power from road embedded power lines. We describe the concept of the Electric Road System (ERS) test track being used and give an overview of the test vehicle for testing the current collection. The emphasis is on the field tests and measurements to evaluate both the vertical accelerations that the manipulator’s end-effector is subject to during operation and the performance of the detection and tracking of the power line.
