  • Extension of periodic tests of the ESP selected sensors is proposed.
  • The idea assumes using a universal diagnostics tester and a wheel play detector unit.
  • The flat model of a vehicle placed on a wheel play detector unit is presented.
  • The results of simulation are compared with the ESP sensor signal.
The paper presents the proposals of extension of the periodic tests of the selected ESP system sensors: angular velocity sensor and lateral acceleration sensor using a universal diagnostics tester and a plate stand (a wheel play detector unit). The idea of this approach is to evaluate the signals from the above sensors in terms of their amplitude and frequency in the case of known forcing at the plate stand. Knowledge of the amplitude and frequency of the plates excitation and the model of tested vehicle allows for predicting the response of vehicle. On this way the verification of sensors indications is possible. This article presents the flat model of a vehicle placed on the plate stand, simulation tests and the results of its validation for three different vehicles. The results of the investigation show that the wheelbase of vehicle has a significant impact on the steady-state vibration amplitude. This conclusion is important in the practical application of this method to test the vehicle yaw rate sensor in the ESP system.
