Version - 07 March 2022

New features

Ability to perform acceleration tests and to show the test parameters on screen

Users can now configure speed, distance or 0-Speed-0 tests, along with test start/end alerts, enable one-foot rollout, and write test results directly to an SD card inserted in the MFD Touch. Acceleration test parameters can be displayed on multiple data screens, allowing them to be monitored in real-time.

More information on this is available here.

Ability to show VBOX internal CAN, external CAN, and AD channel information

MFD Touch is now capable of displaying internal and external CAN data along with analogue/digital data. This allows for additional channels to be monitored such as ADAS channels, internal AD and external modules including IMU04, MIM01, ADC03 and more.

CF card icon and recording icon with the ability to control VBOX recording

MFD Touch will now display a CF card icon and recording icon.

The CF card icon allows the user to know when there is a CF card detected in the connected VBOX 3i, and the recording icon can be used to control the logging function of the VBOX 3i.

The Record Icon shows the current logging status of the connected VBOX 3i unit and reflects the VBOX 3i front panel LOG LED.

It is now possible to use the Screenshot Button to save a full image of what is shown on a display screen to the inserted SD card.

More information on this is available here.

Additional indicators for statuses such as IMU Kalman filter and Dual Antenna

Additional indicators have been added to allow users to quickly and easily identify the status of the IMU Kalman Filter, dual antenna, media status and GNSS status.

More information on this is available here.

Additional alerts and user feedback

A number of alerts and user feedback screens have been added to allow for a better understanding of the behaviour of the MFD Touch and connected VBOX 3i. These include a logging beep, a 'No CAN' feedback screen, along with start and end alerts for acceleration tests.

When using VBOX Manager

VBOX Manager will now cause a brief interrupt in the CAN communication between the VBOX 3i and MFD Touch. This is to allow for the VBOX Manager to configure the VBOX 3i. A notification screen will be shown on the MFD Touch when the VBOX Manager is being used, which will restrict the ability to make changes to the MFD Touch. Once the changes have been completed, the MFD Touch will regain CAN communication with the VBOX 3i.

Test completion time and date added to results file

The time and date have been added to the written results file for acceleration, deceleration, and trigger tests. This shows the start time and date for each run that is completed in the file.

Additional parameters added, such as current file name and media used

Additional parameters have been added to the selection lists which allow users to monitor further VBOX 3i parameters. These parameters include logging status, current file name, memory used, and the various acceleration test parameters.

Added centreline deviation test results for trigger and deceleration tests

MFD Touch now calculates centreline deviation and will populate any numerical element with this parameter assigned, as well as populate within the written results file for both deceleration and trigger stop tests.
