Key Features


High Accuracy GPS

10 Hz or 20 Hz GPS engines provide accurate measurements of position and speed, to within ±0.1 km/h.

CAN Bus Input

Log up to 80 channels of vehicle CAN data, such as throttle angle, RPM, and brake pressure (HD2).

Graphic Overlay

Measured parameters can be graphically overlaid in real-time onto the recorded video, providing a visual reference to the test.

HD Video Quality

Sony Exmor™ HD sensor gives superb colour reproduction and great night sensitivity (HD2 only).

4 Camera Inputs

Up to 4 waterproof camera inputs with configurable picture in picture (Video VBOX Pro only).

HDMI Option

Live stream video to an HDMI compatible monitor, recorder or streaming device like LiveU Solo. (HD2 only)

Power Backup

Keeps logging even when power is lost for a period of up to 10 seconds, ensuring that no data loss or corruption occurs.

Free Analysis Software

Analyse your data with synchronised video footage in VBOX Test Suite, our user-friendly, intuitive data analysis software.

Applications


ADAS Testing

See the exact moment that a vehicle crosses the line when validating the accuracy of Lane Departure Warning or Blind Sport Detection systems, with up to four cameras. VBOX Video data loggers are also ideal for Park Assist testing, providing a visual reference to the kerb.

Brake & Tyre Testing

The VBOX Video HD2 is compatible with the VBOX Tyre Temperature Monitoring System. Measure, log and display the surface temperature of up to four tyres with heat maps overlaid in real-time on the video, making it easy to evaluate tyre performance.

Handling & Dynamics

See what is happening inside and outside the vehicle at any given time. See the full picture and understand the exact path or behaviour of a vehicle during any application, making use of synchronised video and data.

Real-time Graphic Overlay


RACELOGIC's range of in-car camera systems are fully synchronised and embed a real-time graphical overlay on your video, allowing you to instantly analyse your performance and pinpoint areas for improvement.

VBOX Video HD2

The VBOX Video HD2 is our most advanced video data logger and can record in Full HD at 60 frames per second. It is also available with dual cameras and can log up to 80 vehicle CAN channels.

If you need to log more than 32 CAN channels, then the VBOX Video HD2 might be the best data logger for you. It is extremely popular with OEMs, automotive engineering departments and proving grounds, as the VBOX Video HD2 is available with one or two cameras, that can be mounted inside or outside the vehicle.

Synchronised video and data can make it easier to understand the dynamics and behaviour of a vehicle during a specific test. You can simultaneously play back your video footage in VBOX Test Suite and analyse your data in charts and tables, and even share what you see on your screen with colleagues.


Live streaming to remote engineers

The VBOX Video HD2 is available with an HDMI option, allowing you to stream real-time video and audio to an HDMI compatible monitor, recorder or streaming device such as LiveU Solo.

When used with the LiveU Solo, or other compatible HDMI streaming device, live footage can be shared with engineers or departments working remotely. This is particularly useful when only a limited number of people are allowed in the test vehicle, or if you are collaborating with other departments around the world.

Live streaming can save valuable time, as a team of remote engineers can see what is happening in real-time and share feedback with the test driver using radios or telematics equipment.

 

Tyre Temperature Monitoring

The VBOX Video HD2 can also be used in conjunction with the RACELOGIC tyre temperature monitoring sensors, making it easy to measure, log and display the surface temperature of all four tyres in real-time.

Data can be recorded by the VBOX Video HD2 data logger and heat maps are overlaid in real-time on the video. The sensors offer 120° FOV and each sensor can measure up to 16 temperature points on a tyre, with surface temperatures ranging from -20 °C to 300 °C. 

As this information is available on the video, it is extremely easy to interpret and see exactly what is happening on the test track.

VBOX Test Suite

Our user-friendly, intuitive data analysis software comes pre-loaded with application specific plugins and features a customisable layout, so you can see video from multiple cameras side-by-side.

  • Over 25 application specific plugins
  • Play video from multiple VBOX cameras
  • Live and post-event data analysis
  • Create your own custom tests
  • Customisable layout
  • Analyse data sets simultaneously
