Software

All VBOX GPS data loggers ship with VBOX Tools, a highly flexible and very powerful software package designed specifically for vehicle testing. We also offer dedicated software solutions for a number of specialised applications such as circuit analysis, aquaplane, coastdown, lane change, and centreline deviation.

VBOX Test Suite - AEB Plugin

Posted in Software

VBOX Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is a free software plugin for VBOX Test Suite. It includes all three types of Euro NCAP tests: car-to-car rear stationary, car-to-car rear moving, and car-to-car rear braking (CCRs, CCRm, CCRb).

The NCAP protocol’s test parameters for AEB are hard-coded into the VBOX Test Suite software, and all the relevant channels are automatically created and logged during a test: subject and target vehicle speeds, relative distances between them, lateral deviation, yaw and steering wheel velocity.

VBOX Test Suite AEB also processes the data according to the boundaries set out in the Euro NCAP protocol. Every run clearly shows whether each test condition is within tolerance, and a pass/fail for the test as a whole.

This level of automation results in a significant reduction in post-processing work as well as the time already saved on track.

VBOX Test Suite - Brake Test Plugin

Posted in Software

VBOX Brake Test is a free software plugin for VBOX Test Suite.

Designed so that engineers can conduct brake stop testing that conforms to regulations specified in all regions, the brake test plugin is configured to produce results based on speed to speed parameters; or by a variety of alternative inputs - such as trigger, brake pressure or position values.

Brake Test configTests can be run within a tightly defined set of criteria, such as between temperature ranges. Centreline deviation is automatically calculated during each run, and thresholds can be applied to ensure that the operative gets immediate feedback on the validity of results.

  • Auto calibration of wheel speeds
  • Wheel slip calculations

The plugin also produces a comprehensive report that includes all the relevant test results along with the engineer's notes.
