AB Dynamics announces new steering robot model, the Halo

Halo Resized

Our new steering robot is the most flexible and versatile model to date. The halo joins the family as a second direct-drive, hallow-centre model (together with the successful Torus model)

It benefits from over 20 years of robot design evolution and patented technology, delivering both the high torque necessary to evaluate limit handling limit handling as well as precision, light-touch control needed for the latest ADAS tests. 

The Halo uses a carbon fibre steering rim and innovate wrap-around design, allowing a significant reduction in motor height compared to the Torus, improving driver ergonomics. 

The use of a low-friction direct-drive motor and lightweight materials result in the lowest inertia and friction of any hallow-centre (airbag-compatible) on the market. It is the ideal solution for a wide range of tests including the new Euro NCAP Emergency Steering Support (ESS) procedure.
