ALL TERRAIN VEHICLE EQUIPPED WITH CTIS (CENTRAL TIRE INFLATION SYSTEM)

An all terrain vehicle designed and developed at North Carolina State University in 1980 was modified to incorporate a central tire inflation system (CTIS) composed of an air compressor, solenoid valves and controls to provide the proper air inflation pressure to the powered wheels. A radar unit for ground speed/slip measurements was employed to detect the vehicle mobility. The unit's slip data were erratic and could not be recommended for automatic control of the tire inflation pressure. Conversely, the radar ground speed outputs were within plus or minus 2' of the actual measured speeds and will be used in future circuitry control of the CTIS. (Author)
