VBOX systems provide a simple and accurate way to test and validate Advanced Driver Assistance systems. With real-time measurements of parameters from up to three vehicles and at less than 2cm positional accuracy, the Racelogic VBOX ADAS testing system allows developers to easily verify the effectiveness of their products. Customers like Honda, Nissan, GM, Autoliv, and Toyota use VBOX ADAS equipment to test their safety systems. At the core of the system is the VBOX 3i Dual Antenna with RTK, connected via radio telemetry to an RTK Base Station, or to another VBOX 3i acting as a 'moving base'.TAKE ME TO VBOX ADAS SOLUTIONS ×
VBOX systems are a reliable source of ground truth, providing resilient high-accuracy
position, navigation and timing (PNT) through the combination of multi-frequency
GNSS, inertial data and odometer input (wheel speed from vehicle CAN).
All solutions are accurate to within a centimetre outdoors or indoors with our
UWB indoor positioning system.
Due to their high precision, flexibility, and ease of installation, VBOX data loggers are used by almost every automotive and tyre manufacturer in the world to carry out brake distance measurements and for validating the accuracy of braking assist systems.
With enhancements in tyre compounds and constructions getting smaller each year, manufacturers need the ability to accurately measure changes. VBOX data loggers are easy to set up, quick to use, and can provide measurements at up to ±2 cm positional accuracy - allowing engineers to plot even the smallest improvements in performance. Our tyre testing solutions enable you to test both summer and winter tyres all year round in controlled conditions, both indoors and outdoors.TAKE ME TO BRAKE & TYRE TESTING ×
VBOX Pass-By Noise testing equipment allows you to log channels such as engine RPM, vehicle velocity and maximum vehicle exterior noise to the accuracy requirements of ECE / EPA standards and regulations. Certification of vehicle noise emissions for tyres, passenger vehicles, motorcycles and light trucks is achieved with dedicated Pass-By-Noise plugins for EPA, ECE R41, ECE R51, ECE R117 and ECE R138.TAKE ME TO VBOX ADAS SOLUTIONS ×
We offer a complete solution for testing a vehicle's handling and dynamics characteristics. The accuracy of VBOX systems, combined with our free data analysis software, means you can easily test in accordance with the latest global regulations.
Standard procedures for Aquaplane, ESC, Centreline Deviation, Lane Change, and Tyre testing can be conducted using a VBOX data logger. The VBOX 3i data logger has an update rate of 100 Hz, making it ideal for high dynamic applications that require accurate measurements of speed, position and heading. The VBOX 3i is also available with Dual Antennas, and can be used with the VBOX Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), for highly accurate measurements of pitch, roll and yaw.TAKE ME TO VBOX Vehicle Dynamic Testing ×
VBOX testing equipment is used by vehicle manufactures around the world to measure speed, position and distance both indoors and outdoors. Typical applications include acceleration and deceleration testing, lap timing, measuring cornering g-forces, vehicle performance benchmarking and Coastdown testing.TAKE ME TO Performance Testing ×
With centimetre-level positional accuracy and the ability to log multiple vehicle CAN channels, the VBOX testing system gives investigation teams the ability to accurately simulate and reconstruct all types of vehicle collisions, with traceable results that can be used in courts of law.
A VBOX Video logger can also be used, offering synchronised data and graphically enhanced video, which provides CIU's with the opportunity to quickly view key facts and present these clearly in a court of law. Our simple-to-use analysis software also makes it easy to pick-out important data when investigating an incident.TAKE ME TO VBOX Collision Forensics ×
VBOX systems provide highly accurate measurements of position, speed and attitude, enabling you to test and validate the performance of virtually any military vehicle; including trucks, boats, amphibious vehicles, tanks, heavy recovery and armoured vehicles.TAKE ME TO Security & Defence ×
How does VIPS work?
A number of fixed Ultra-Wideband (UWB) beacons are placed around the indoor test area (minimum 6), in known positions which have been manually surveyed using a handheld laser or Total Station (if time is of the essence, a self-survey can also be performed). The beacons are completely stand-alone, and can be battery powered, making the deployment very rapid..TAKE ME TO VBOX Testing Indoors ×
Driving robots for steering and throttle/brake control are often used in vehicle testing and development where the test procedures call for absolute consistency that a human driver cannot perform; and also in cases where the manoeuvres are not considered acceptably safe to have a driver at the wheel, or are extremely difficult to carry out (such as the Sine With Dwell element of ESC testing).
For some tests which need the vehicle to take a repeatable and highly accurate drive line – such as AEB or lane change testing - a VBOX 3i RTK is used to provide speed, heading, and positional data to the required accuracy for a driving robot to follow a predefined path.TAKE ME TO VBOX Robot Integration ×
Using a 'Moving Base' setup allows you to test ADAS applications on the open road. It works by linking two VBOX 3i RTK units, with the system in the subject vehicle transmitting corrections to the target vehicle at an update rate of 20 times per second.
This replaces the need to implement an RTK Base Station with a limited broadcast range, and provides engineers with the ability to test on normal roads, over reasonable distances, among other road users and roadside furniture, to under 5 cm relative positional accuracy.TAKE ME TO Open Road ADAS Testing ×
