By capturing accurate and reliable data, the VBOX testing system provides vehicle manufacturers with the data they need to test the effectiveness of their vehicle's aerodynamics and the low-rolling-resistance measures implemented.
A common problem associated with Coastdown testing is the need for a very long, flat test track. The VBOX solution tackles this by enabling you to break down your testing into multiple user-defined segments enabling the full speed range to be subject to the same parameters. IMU integration also ensures precise data even in locations with noisy GPS.
Our dedicated 'Coastdown' testing software allows you to test to all major Coastdown standards including WLTP GTR15, SAE J2263 and ABNT NBR 10312.
Integrating our Inertial Measurement Unit with a VBOX 3i ensures that accurate data can be captured even in areas with noisy GPS.
Perform tests in accordance with EU (WLTP GTR15), US (SAE J2263) and Brazilian (ABNT NBR 10312) standards.
Save hours of post-processing by using a VBOX Video data logger, which offers synchronised video and data from each vehicle under test.
VBOX Test Suite is free to all VBOX users, available in ten different languages and pre-installed with a dedicated Coastdown plugin.
See if your vehicle has passed or failed the test in real-time, by easily configuring your own pass criteria in the software and saving post-processing time.
Our user-friendly, intuitive data analysis software makes the process of recording and analysing your test data as quick and easy as possible.
A dedicated 'Coastdown' plugin comes pre-installed on VBOX Test Suite with the choice of test standards; the European WLTP GTR15, the American SAE J2263 and the Brazilian ABNT NBR 10312.
The Coastdown plugin offers real-time display of all measured parameters, as well as customisable pass/fail conditions, so you can see instantly if your vehicle has passed the test.
A comprehensive report can be generated at the end of the test, providing all session information and results for post-analysis.
A typical Coastdown test setup consists of a VBOX 3i 100 Hz data logger and an Inertial Measurement Unit. A dedicated VBOX Test Suite Coastdown plugin completes the package by making the testing and data analysis as easy as possible.
A 100 Hz GNSS receiver provides highly accurate measurements of position, velocity and distance. It can also be connected to the vehicle's CAN bus to utilise wheel speed data.
When used in conjunction with a VBOX 3i, data from the IMU can be seamlessly integrated with GPS to produce smooth velocity data even when satellite reception is interrupted.
You can use a Windows laptop or tablet for real-time and post-test data analysis, using the dedicated 'Coastdown' plugin in VBOX Test Suite, our free data analysis software.
