This paper presents a tire three-component force sensor which can be used to increase electronic control system performance. Firstly, the shape and strain gauges distribution scheme of the tire three-force sensor are designed. As a car-installed force sensor, it is in small size, and there is no crosstalk between forces according to simulation result. Secondly, the force sensor entity is calibrated by using self-developed calibration device. Finally, experiments on vehicle is carried out. This paper is an important guidance for the design of a car-installed tire three-component force sensor. By supplying real-time tire forces to electronic control system, it offers a new way of developing intelligent tire.
