There are measuring vehicles in many areas, for example in the Fire departments for the measurement of pollutants, in the area of road construction for the measurement of road unevenness, as a measuring vehicle for the determination of overspeed or measuring vehicles for tire adhesion tests, to name just four possible areas of activity. If you want to convert a car into a measuring vehicle, this is possible.
It depends on the measurement technology
If you want to convert a car into a measuring vehicle, the question of a suitable model naturally arises. What type of model is available depends, for example, on what type of measuring vehicle it is supposed to be. Do you want to measure pollutants in the environment? Or do you want to carry out a road surface analysis? The area of application can be varied. Depending on the measurement car, you have a different scope of measurement technology. And you have to accommodate them in a car. Here you also have to consider other points, such as the weight of the measurement technology. The total weight of the car must not be overloaded, which would lead to the approval failing. Depending on the measurement technology, you also have a different amount of assembly work inside, but also outside.
Telekom also has measuring vehicles
And finally, measurement technology also needs an appropriate power supply. Depending on requirements, this can be done either via the existing vehicle electrical system or via additional batteries. And an external power connection is not uncommon in a measuring vehicle. At least when the car only takes the necessary measurements when it is stationary. Vehicles with additional batteries must of course be specially charged, otherwise the batteries cannot be used permanently. Here either a more powerful alternator is required, it may also be sufficient to charge the vehicle overnight, or both are simply necessary. Here, too, it always depends on the area of application and the installed technology. As can be seen from these examples, when converting to a measuring vehicle, a lot depends on the type of measurement technology.
Painting and approval
Apart from measurement technology, there may be further requirements depending on the measurement vehicle. If you think of a measuring vehicle in road traffic, a car must not only be kept in the typical orange, but also over one Yellow lights feature. It serves as a warning device for other road users. With regard to the basic color of the vehicle, depending on which it must have, it is advisable to pay attention to it when choosing the vehicle. Alternatively, a neutral base color is also possible, but then a corresponding one foiling makes necessary. Depending on the scope of the modifications, a new approval by the road traffic authorities as well as an inspection by the TÜV may be necessary. Depending on the measuring vehicle, further approvals can follow. For example, if you want to install a special signal system with yellow light. As a private person, however, you will generally not get an approval for this. This should also be taken into account when planning and converting to a measuring vehicle
