Abstract: A method and apparatus for calibrating laser displacement sensors within a vehicle inspection system. A calibration target structure is positioned within an operative field of view for the laser displacement sensor, providing one or more optical targets onto which illuminating laser beams from the laser displacement sensor are projected. Displacement measurements are acquired with the optical targets disposed at a plurality of positions within the field of view. The resulting displacement measurements, together with known position information for the optical targets, are utilized to calibrate an associated imaging sensor such that the displacement measurements associated with each illuminating laser beam and known positional information agree to within a desired tolerance throughout the operative field of view for the laser displacement sensor. A method and apparatus for calibrating laser displacement sensors within a vehicle inspection system. A calibration target structure is positioned within an operative field of view for the laser displacement sensor, providing one or more optical targets onto which illuminating ...more ...less

Abstract: A process for calibrating and evaluating a machine-vision vehicle wheel alignment system having front and rear imaging components associated with each of the left and right sides of a vehicle support structure. Each pair of imaging components defines a front and rear field of view, with a common overlapping region associated with each respective side of the vehicle support structure. Optical targets disposed within each of the overlapping field of view regions are observed by the imaging components to establish performance ratings for the system as a whole, for groups of components within the system, and for individual components within the system.

Abstract: A method includes receiving, by an inventory management system (IMS) program executing on a computing device, a remaining useful life (RUL) formulation for a part of a machine that estimates an amount of time for which the part will continue to perform its intended function and a potential unscheduled maintenance event. The method also includes receiving, by the IMS program, replacement part order lead time data and anticipated replacement part inventory level data from a part inventory database. The method also includes determining, by the IMS program and based on the RUL formulation, the replacement part order lead time data, and the anticipated part replacement inventory level data, that an order for a replacement part should be initiated.
