Traction Control Systems for Commercial Lawn Mowers

The Ariens-Olin SCOPE team built a research platform to monitor and record the driving behavior and dynamics for Ariens’ family of products. The team can demonstrate the ability of our research platform by addressing traction control over a variety of terrains.The team also instrumented an Ariens product with sensors to quantify the ability of the product to react to a variety of terrain and operating situations. This data allowed the team to model and simulate potential systems, before implementing these controls to create a live demo.
