Road Condition Analysis Sensor
2019 - PACE Award Finalist
What: Wheel sensors measure road conditions
Innovation: Hella’s road condition sensors — called SHAKE, for Structural Health and Knock Emission — enable a real-time measurement of water on pavement to reduce hydroplaning. The sensors, placed inside a vehicle’s front wheelhouses, measure tire friction with the road and use a proprietary algorithm to make braking decisions.
