The Racelogic Coastdown Test Software is designed to perform tests in accordance with EU directive 70/220/EEC – annex III, measuring the effects of wind and road resistance, based upon the time taken for a vehicle to coast from one speed to another, with the engine in neutral gear.
A major problem associated with this testing is the requirement for a very long, flat test track, to allow sufficient time for the vehicle to coast from 125kmh to 5kmh (for example – range is user definable).
The Racelogic Coastdown Software allows you to break the testing down into multiple user definable segments whilst using the full range of results for the test. This eliminates the need for an excessively long test track.
The software takes the test data and performs statistical analysis in real-time, as defined in the directive, to provide instantaneous indication of when the required statistical accuracy has been met.
The Coastdown Software is designed for use with VBOX III or VBOX 3i, particularly when used in conjunction with an IMU.
