Luckily I was able to go with a colleague on a test drive in this American SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle). The SRT line is comparable with the AMG line of Mercedes-Benz, M line of BMW or the RS line of Audi. Due to tire pressure sensor tests, we took a ride in this amazing car. In different vehicle driving modes, e.g. Track, Sport, and Auto, I supported the colleague with measuring the results. We tested a functionality whereby the car control unit recognizes automatically in each wheel the sensor was installed.

Our test drive took place on a dirt road, hence, we were able to test the sensors under real drive condition. The powerful engine accelerates the heavy body (2,3 tons) easily. While the seat ventilation kept us cool during the whole drive.
