Continental Automotive Systems

Continental Automotive Systems are behind numerous innovations in driving safety, producing products for many global vehicle manufacturers. For the test and development of their ADAS products they needed a flexible system to help them quickly measure complex data with maximum accuracy.

Rob Cavanagh, Lead ADAS Engineer at Continental

"The VBOX ADAS system has proved very useful. We even use the system in client demos, which gives a great illustration of the accuracy of our systems against the VBOX benchmark... I especially like the system's ability to be installed into two vehicles, zero the distances out, and be up and testing in just 15 minutes."

MIRA Proving Ground

MIRA (Motor Industry Research Association) are based in Warwickshire, UK, and are a leading independent provider of engineering development and research services to the worldwide automotive industry.

MIRA use a number of VBOX units to carry out brake testing on their own test track facility for many large automotive manufacturers. They have various types of dry and wet surfaces with varying levels of grip, and find that VBOX is the only technology which works consistently in all conditions.

Previously, MIRA had used fifth wheels, radar sensors, microwave sensors and optical sensors, but have now replaced all of these with VBOX systems.

Test World

Test World run the largest cold winter test facility in Finland, and carry out thousands of tests each year for various manufacturers. Their expertise is in testing tyres and braking systems. Test World have three VBOX units which they use on a daily basis.

The nature of cold weather testing presents a number of unique problems. Optical and microwave sensors struggle to operate in such harsh conditions, and fifth wheels slide on the slippery surface.

GPS sensors are ideally suited for such testing, as the only external fitting required is the aerial which can be mounted on the roof. http://www.testworld.fi/

The Australian GT Series

Race series organisers around the world have increasingly been turning to 'black box' solutions to record video and data and support their own marshals, to understand exactly what's happening on the track during the race and avoid driver disputes.

After a number of incidents, the Australian GT Series wanted the best available system for their race monitoring, with a view to bringing down dispute costs, and also to offer wider possibilities for recording their races. The solution they chose was Video VBOX Pro.


DPR Motorsport

As a leading Caterham approved team, DPR Motorsport have set up their very own track side media centre to allow their drivers to benefit from data captured using Video VBOX.

David Rowe, DPR Team principal, said: "As a team historically we have always relied heavily on data acquisition. We have found using the Video VBOX system together with our trackside media centre has enabled us to improve our support package further. Providing fast and convenient access to all of the team data gives our drivers the ability to analyse and view that data away from the circuit and between race weekends which is key to improving performance."

Wilhelm Lutjeharms, Journalist at CAR

"Just want to say what a pleasure it is to deal with Racelogic's support department. In today's climate where customer service is utterly pathetic, well in South Africa anyway, it is always a pleasure to correspond with this department."


EVO Magazine on Video VBOX

"After testing the various devices on the market including other GPS systems, the VBOX was the most reliable and easy to use."


Autocar on VBOX II

"We need results fast and accurately, the VBOX provides us with both, and is a joy to use."


Car and Driver Magazine on VBOX systems

"I've used a variety of vehicle testing equipment and the VBOX systems are by far the most convenient of any system out there. They offer a high degree of accuracy in a package that's a fraction the size of anything else. Thanks to the ability of VBOX to run either stand-alone or with a PC, there isn't a vehicle or race car that it can't be tailored to. We've bought a number of different VBOX systems and are finding new uses for them nearly every week."


Top Gear

The venerable car entertainment show has used VBOX equipment many times since it started in its current format in 2002. Whenever the BBC needs to accurately measure speed, distance, acceleration, or time, they use a VBOX.

Memorable examples include:
  • Logging a car's speed to see if it can pass a speed enforcement camera so fast that its image cannot be captured (sadly no longer possible)
  • Recording every lap made during the 2007 Britcar 24hr endurance race at Silverstone, where the team powered their BMW with home-grown biofuel
  • Various drag races between high-performance cars
  • Comparative lap times at a number of race tracks throughout the globe
  • Displaying speed whilst driving a 'home-made' convertible around the high speed bowl at Millbrook Proving Ground

Tekniikan Maailma

Performance Box was given the top 5 star rating in a product test carried out by respected Finnish technical automotive magazine Tekniikan Maailma in 2009. In a head-to-head test covering accuracy, ease of use, and reliability, Performance Box surpassed the other 7 products to receive 9.8 points out of a maximum 10.


Car and Driver

A four page feature in the November 2002 edition of the largest selling US car magazine, Car and Driver, goes into detail on how they test cars. Car and Driver have a strong reputation for balanced, highly scientific automotive testing in the US.

Car and Driver have used all types of testing equipment over the years, fifth wheels, optical sensors, and microwave sensors, and now they have taken the next logical step and invested in two VBOX II units using GPS and compact flash storage.

Car and Driver magazine spent just over a year carefully evaluating and fine tuning their procedures before purchasing these units. RACELOGIC in turn helped develop the software to suit their needs, drawing on their many years of testing experience.

This software is available for anybody purchasing a VBOX, and makes testing and evaluating new vehicles an efficient and pleasurable process.


Automotive testing technology international

Adam Gavine, editor of the respected 'Automotive Testing Technology International' magazine uses VBOX systems for many of the magazine's technical vehicle testing features. He recently used a Video VBOX Pro at Circuito Monteblanco in Spain for a feature in the magazine.

Adam said: "VBOX was installed in our test cars in seconds, and was so simple to use. It provided accurate data which was very useful to use in the article, and was also great for personal driver development."


AutoBild India

Our VBOX IISX Triple Antenna data logger was described as being the 'ace in the pack' for a vehicle handling test undertaken by AutoBild Magazine India in July 2009.

In what was probably the most objective and scientific handling test ever carried out by a magazine in India, drivers put 21 new cars through slalom, elk, skidpan, and circuit tests to decide which road cars handled and performed the best, with the Audi A4 3.2 Quattro finally beating the competition.

Austal

Australian ship builder Austal is the largest aluminium shipbuilder in the world. Austal used VBOX SL3-Marine to test a new breed of naval defence craft in the form of the Littoral Combat Ship 'Independence' in the Gulf of Mexico. The striking new trimaran was designed to operate in coastal areas and is geared to supporting mine detection / elimination, anti-submarine warfare, and anti-surface warfare.

http://www.austal.com/

Tobias Clarke from Austal shipbuilder on the VBOX SL3-Marine System

"With its easy installation, wireless real time monitoring, accuracy and portability, the VBOX SL3 is a great unit that offers a number of significant leading features and was very useful to us in the development of our latest Littoral Combat Ship 'Independence'."


Volvo Penta

Marine engine manufacturer Volvo Penta uses the VBOX SL3-marine system to obtain measurements on vessel handling characteristics to optimise their propeller and drive train setups.

Three ground plane antennas were attached to the roof of a boat to obtain simultaneous Pitch, Roll and Yaw data, which is transmitted via Bluetooth to a dashboard mounted Q1 display.

Volvo Penta were attracted to the VBOX SL3-Marine system for its flexibility and accuracy as a precise 3-axis measurement system that can be fitted and working in less than 5 minutes.
