New NTRIP Modem allows for ADAS testing without a Base Station

Posted in News

VBOX3i NTRIP ModemThe new VBOX NTRIP Modem allows a VBOX 3i RTK to receive positional correction data via Network RTK, without having to use a VBOX Base Station.

Correction messages received via the RTK network can be an advantage if testing is conducted tens of kilometres away from the base station, over large changes in elevation or where topographical obstacles could get in the way.

If RTK coverage is available, the VBOX NTRIP Modem allows for vehicle testing that requires high positional accuracy – such as when validating critical safety systems like AEB/ACC - to be conducted where a VBOX Base Station cannot be deployed.

VBOX CAN Hub released

Posted in News

The VBOX CAN Hub (RLVBCANHUB) simplifies equipment installation of VBOX data loggers and modules, and connection to the vehicle bus. Its footprint is the same as the VBOX 3i, so it sits neatly underneath (see image below). The new hub solution is especially useful for ADAS testing setups by removing the need for a variety of splitters and additional cabling. More ...

VBOX Racelogic European Roadshow - A Success

Posted in News

The European leg of the hugely successful VBOX Roadshow 2016 has drawn to a close at Quattroruote, Vairano, Italy

After a 6 week tour of Europe, starting in France, travelling up to Luxembourg then down through Germany and finally ending in Italy, the European leg of the VBOX Roadshow has drawn to a successful conclusion at the ASC Quattroruote, Vairano test facility near Milan.

The event in Italy, put on in partnership with Giuseppe and his team from Remak, saw 30 delegates in attendance from a variety of companies including Ducati, Aprilia, FCA Group and Magneti Marelli to name just a few. Click on the link to take a look at some photos from the day: https://flic.kr/s/aHskx2RzJZ

The next outing for the VBOX Roadshow will be at MIRA and Heyford Park in the UK on 21st and 23rd June respectively – hopefully we will be blessed with the same blue skies that we experienced in Italy!

Posted in News

Following on from the success of the Open House held last October at our offices in Farmington Hills MI, Racelogic USA are opening their doors again and invite you to come along to learn about our latest developments in VBOX technology. The Racelogic Team will be highlighting the exciting new VBTS features including video sync and mapping.

Date: Friday 27th January, 2016          Time: 10am - 2pm 

Location: Racelogic USA, 27240 Haggerty Road, Suite E17, Farmington Hills, MI 48331

IMU now with Roof Mounting Option

Posted in News

roof mounted imu newThe VBOX IMU roof-mounting option allows for an IMU04 to be placed directly on the vehicle roof, co-located with the GPS antenna.

The IMU is securely fastened within the machined enclosure which has a magnetic base to ensure that it stays safely in place.

Maximum Kalman Filter performance and best application of lever arm correction requires configuration derived from accurate measurement between the IMU and antenna.

Co-locating the antenna and IMU on the vehicle’s roof there is no requirement to measure the distance between them as you do in a standard setup, and it is easier to install. With the GPS and inertial data sources coming from the same point, this critical measurement no longer needed, leaving only the required translation to – typically – the vehicle’s centre of gravity. This method is easier and isn’t prone to human error.

Features

  • Yaw rate range ±450˚/s
  • Acceleration range ±5 g in each axis
  • Internal temperature compensation
  • Yaw rate resolution 0.014˚/s
  • Acceleration resolution 0.15 mg
  • CAN Bus interface
  • Integration with GNSS for consistent and accurate data in weak/degraded satellite signal conditions
  • Splash proof: IP67 rating
  • 0.05˚(RMS) pitch/roll and yaw angle accuracy when used in conjunction with a VBOX 3i

Highlights from the Unmanned Systems Exhibition, Atlanta

Posted in News

Jim Lau, Racelogic USA, details the LabSat GNSS Simulator and VBOX Speed Sensor IMU while at Unmanned Systems 2015, held May 4-7 in Atlanta.

VBOX is a 100Hz dual antenna GPS/GLONASS speed sensor (VBSSISL) that combines signals from an integrated inertial measurement unit (IMU) with those from GPS to provide smoother output data even when satellite reception is interrupted.
