Trucks are a key element that performs transport functions in many sectors of human activity. This makes ensuring their proper maintenance and performance critical. One of the solutions to this problem is the concept of a mobile automated testing and testing station. A mobile diagnostic and dynometric station based on a 6-foot container was built at the Military University of Technology in Warsaw. This bench is a self-contained unit that can be transported to various locations and carry out on-site testing and diagnostics of heavy trucks. The station is equipped with a fully open system and software that can accurately measure the performance and efficiency of the truck's engine and driveline and enforce specific automated diagnostic processes analogous to quality control tests during the production process. This information can then be used to make informed maintenance and repair decisions, helping to minimize downtime and increase overall vehicle life. The mobile diagnostic and dynamic station also provides a convenient and cost-effective alternative to traditional off-site testing methods, making it a valuable tool for transport companies and fleet managers.
