The system is designed to be used for dynamic vehicle testing and validation procedures normally performed without GPS. By activating the same test equipment that was traditionally limited to outdoor use, for general use with limited or no satellite coverage, VIPS is suitable for a variety of applications and can compensate for gaps in GPS coverage. Typical applications include brake and crash testing and ADAS sensor validation.
The system provides a solution to one of the most difficult problems facing the automotive test industry. It is also the latest in a long line of innovations from Racelogic that enables customers to quickly and efficiently test and validate the latest safety systems and sensors in any environment.
The VBOX Indoor Positioning System consists of a network of beacons positioned around a test area that communicate with a small receiver via Ultra Wide Band (UWB) mounted on the roof of a vehicle. The receiver has an integrated VBOX with Kalman filter and connects directly to a data logger that collects data from the vehicle’s CAN bus along with position, speed and angle.
