Whole of vehicle Health Usage Monitoring System (vHUMS)

ENGINEERING, DESIGN AND LAB BASED TESTING OF WHOLE OF VEHICLE HEALTH USAGE MONITORING SYSTEM (vHUMS) FOR DEFENCE VEHICLES

DIP Contribution: $150,000

Project Summary: A fully operating HUMS system will provide significant cost savings in terms of real time warning on potential failure, improve preparedness of vehicle platforms for operational needs, and reduced fleet management costs. It will also significantly increase operator safety.

This project builds on a body of research work by the Partners that established the theoretical feasibility of thermo-mechanical measurement to determine energy dissipated in shock absorbers.
