Title
(EN) VEHICLE WHEEL ALIGNMENT APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE REGLAGE DU PARALLELISME DES ROUES D'UN VEHICULE
Abstract
(EN)
Vehicle wheel alignment apparatus having active alignment determining means (23, 24) operatively mounted on the steerable (22) and non-steerable (15) wheels so as to be substantially insensitive to mechanical distortion of the vehicle wheels and operable in combination with wheel run-out compensation means to produce wheel alignment results of improved accuracy, and utilizing the improved arrangement of alignment apparatus for supplying information which can be used for computing the important angular relationship of the wheels to a vehicle reference.
(FR)
Un appareil de reglage du parallelisme des roues d'un vehicule ayant des moyens de determination d'alignement (23, 24) montes de maniere effective sur les roues directrices (22) et non directrices (15) de maniere a etre insensibles a la distorsion mecanique des roues du vehicule et pouvant fonctionner en combinaison avec des moyens de compensation d'usure des roues pour produire des resultats d'alignement des roues d'une precision amelioree, et utilisant les dispositifs ameliores de l'appareil pour fournir des informations qui peuvent etre utilisees pour calculer la relation angulaire importante des roues par rapport a une reference.
