The Ford Auto/Emission Driver System automates the driving of a test vehicle on a chassis dynamometer while it is undergoing exhaust emissions testing. It consists of a hybrid analog and digital electronic control console including a magnetic tape recorder and a servo hydraulic mechanical console linked to universal interface fixture in the vehicle via flexible mechanical push-pull cables. Test results indicate, based on several empirical parameters, that the system "drives" the test vehicle more repeatably than even the best human driver.
