The RaceSense Box is an addon product, to be attched to a video logger, like the superb VBOX from Racelogic as an example. It simply plugs in, so is quick to install or remove and accurately measures your inputs to the car including these signals:Throttle positionDeceleration under braking (inertia sensor)Rotation rate (like a steering angle sensor)
Brake position or brake actual pressures can be measured using additional sensors
All of these signals can be overlaid on video and shown in graphs for analysis and comparison. So, for example, you can see exactly how much throttle you apply and when and how quickly you move from throttle to brake, or perhaps to check, if, when and where you are coasting etc etc. The measured g-forces have faster response than GPS calculations so you can see the instant brakes are applied or use the optional non-contact sensor to measure brake position.
RaceSense Box helps massively during training as you and your coach can see all the car inputs accurately and you can compare your data with reference laps driven by the coach. With this unit installed, there is no more guesswork looking at foot cameras or listening to pick up of engine revs etc.
The box also measures combined g-force, lateral g-force, air and coolant temperatures and works with all road and race Caterhams including Academy, Roadsport, 270R, 310R, 620R and 420R etc. It;s also successfully been installed in Formula Ford and BMWs. Please contact us for other models and why not add a RaceSense ShiftMate as well, at a cost of just £125, CLICK HERE to take a look!Perfect for use with Racelogic VBOX productsSuperb overlaid data, ideal for driver coachingEnhance with Racesense ShiftMate shift lights
This unit plugs into your car and video logger, it's supplied complete kit with leads, tunnel strap, instructions and example files to make it simple to fit and use. It contains a powerful 32-bit ARM microcontroller plus 3D accelerometer and gyroscope. It can also measure voltages and signals from external sensors. Data from the car and sensors is combined with the inertial signals and sent to the video logger and You can easily add the new signals to VboxTM scenes and view them as graphs in CircuitToolsTM.
Example scenes with Caterham dials are also freely available for users of RaceSense Box to use and modify. An optional non-contact brake position sensor is available which fits inside the pedal box. This can be fitted and removed easily and does not require the car to be modified and an optional brake pressure sensor also available. The box also has spare resource to allow FastMate support other cars and features in the future, as well as a USB port to allow different setups and upgrades to be programmed.
