Racelogic has released a new model of VBox, the VBox Touch, which the company says is the first in a new generation of highly flexible, enhanced accuracy GNSS dataloggers using the latest technology.
The hardware can be used in a wide range of automotive tests such as acceleration, braking, speed verification, tyre temperature monitoring, lap-timing and durability evaluation. The unit comes preloaded with a Performance application which covers many common use cases, and other applications can be downloaded free of charge from Racelogic’s online library, with custom scripts also available, if required.
Applications are written in Python script, which offers flexibility as well as the potential for users to write code to solve their specific testing requirements. The configurable touchscreen display can interact with two different CAN buses, log data, and calculate precise position and speed whilst giving feedback to drivers.
A high-accuracy 2cm RTK GPS version is available, which uses dual-frequency GPS, GLONASS and Galileo signals to deliver accuracy even under difficult conditions. According to Racelogic, these signals increase RTK resilience near trees and tall buildings, providing precise lap-timing, position triggers and trajectory maps in places where 2cm GPS has never been available before.
