Dynatest has now finalized the design of the RAPTOR vehicle to be used for services in 2018. The vehicle consists of a specially designed semi-trailer and a standard truck. The semi-trailer, which is now in production at the facility of a German contractor, will carry the RWD technology developed at Dynatest, as well as other optional systems such as LCMS.
The Dynatest RAPTOR prototype performs 100 km of road measurements. The test was conducted in the vicinity of Dynatest's European headquarter in Copenhagen. The comprehensive bearing capacity data-set was supplemented with Falling Weight Deflectometer measurements.
