Racelogic’s new VBOX 3iS
The Racelogic VBOX 3iS (RLVB3iS) is a compact GPS/Inertial sensor which offers extraordinary precision and accuracy, by combining wheel speed data with a high-grade Inertial Measurement Unit and 100 Hz RTK GNSS receiver.
Due to the 100 Hz multi-constellation GNSS engine and the tracking of both the GPS and GLONASS networks of satellites, the VBOX 3iS ensures the accuracy of the data being captured even in restricted sky view conditions. In areas with limited or no satellite signal (such as tunnels or test tracks surrounded by trees), the VBOX 3iS can fill in the gaps for prolonged periods of time – allowing you to continue testing without having to worry about erroneous data.
Designed to be used with a customer’s existing control system or data logger, the VBOX 3iS offers accurate acceleration, speed, position and attitude data. It is designed for conducting tests such as performance, braking, ADAS and benchmarking.
For ADAS applications, connecting to another VBOX 3i RTK device enables the VBOX 3iS to act as a moving target and with RTK enabled, is capable of achieving 2 cm accuracy.
In this situation, the VBOX 3iS removes the need to fit expensive external wheel speed sensors that are difficult to fit and vulnerable to damage, by using the existing CAN bus information from the vehicle. Due to Racelogic’s comprehensive Vehicle CAN database, this is quick and easy to do as the CAN file for each vehicle you being tested can simply be downloaded.
