Light Duty Chassis Dynamometer

Light duty chassis dyno
 
The Light Duty Chassis Dynamometer tests vehicles with an electric machine 
underground that absorbs power and provides resistance to the vehicle. The 
vehicle is placed on rollers that offer varying levels of resistance, similar to 
a treadmill. Click on the image to view a video of the dyno at work.
