In the present day, automobile manufacturers demand a certain torque range from hinges provided by supply industry. However, there are no torque measurement system used by the industry to measure this kind of mechanisms and the available systems cannot meet expectations. The purpose of this study is to design a computer-based torque measurement system and to produce its prototype. This system will be used to measure torque range of the vehicle front hood hinges and to control whether torque value is suitable or not. The developed system is an integrated mechatronic system that contains such subsystems as mechanical, electronic and control system. It is expected that the developed torque measurement system will fill an important gap in the relevant industrial sectors and will find widespread application area.
