The RaceSense Box is a small unit that plugs into your car and video logger. We provide a complete kit with leads, tunnel strap, instructions and example files to make it simple to fit and use. RaceSense Box 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. 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.
RaceSense Box has spare resource to allow us to support other cars and features in future. A USB port allows different setups and upgrades to be programmed.
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.
The screen shot below shows an example scene with brake (red bar), throttle (blue bar), steering angle, rev counter all provided by RaceSense. Graphs of the signals can also be viewed for detailed analysis as shown under the scene.
