The new VBOX3i Dual Antenna (VBOX3i SL) uses two antennas placed a fixed distance apart to capture vehicle dynamics (along the vehicle for pitch and across the vehicle for roll). By utilising both the GPS and Russian GLONASS constellations, RMS accuracies of up to 0.04° for slip and 0.028° for pitch can be achieved.
Racelogic’s Managing Director, Julian Thomas, said: “The system is so accurate that you can even measure the small effect a side wind has on the slip angle of a moving vehicle – a feat that even the best inertial systems struggle to replicate.
“If you need to measure slip angle, then the VBOX3i SL easily outperforms a single antenna inertial system, for about half the price. It’s is our best VBOX to date.”
The dual antenna system measures many different parameters with high precision, such as speed, distance, acceleration and position, allowing users to carry out performance measurements, brake testing, aquaplaning testing, coast down testing, lane change manoeuvres, lane drift and ADAS verification.
