OxTS releases xNAV200 - its smallest and lightest GPS-aided INS
It's not just GPS dropouts that cause a problem; poor GPS reception, multipath and reflections will all make data sets much more difficult to work with.
You might not have heard of Mike Newman yet, but that could be about to change in the next twelve months. Mike is a bank manager from Sale in Cheshire, and has a thirst for speed and a deep-rooted passion for motor sports. He's the three-time Guinness land speed record holder. That achievement is remarkable enough, but when you consider that Mike is completely blind, this record of achievement becomes all the more remarkable. In spite of this, Mike remains surprisingly modest about the numerous records he's managed to collect and says that all he's ever wanted to do is make blind-speed more accessible and achievable for people with a disability. Mike and his Speed of Sight team are hoping to emulate Sir Donald Campbell's record in the next year and break both the World blind land speed and water speed records. Datron Technology is an integral part of this team effort and has every confidence that the Cheshire speedster will achieve his goals.
We have been working with Aston Martin for around 20 years, the latest SUCHY logging system has been installed and we had a nice message from Chris Golds regarding the installation.......
Verifying the accuracy of radar and other sensors can be performed objectively and with high precision. The RT-Range is used for the accurate measurement of the relative motion between vehicles and precise measurement of lane position. Typical applications include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and Collision Warning Systems.
At the heart of the RT3000 family of Inertial and GPS Navigation products is a six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The Inertial Measurement Unit uses three solid-state MEMS angular rate sensors and three servo (force-feedback) accelerometers. The three accelerometers are all mounted at 90 degrees to each other, and the three angular rate sensors are mounted at the same angles as their respective accelerometers. Together they give full 3D motion measurement of the body of the vehicle.
OxTS is releasing the RT2002 inertial and GPS navigation system, a cost-effective component for testing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Combined with an OxTS RT-Range system, RT2002s can be used as a reference for radar, LIDAR and other sensors that are used for accident avoidance. Straight and curved roads can also be surveyed and then used to compute lane position. Used by itself the RT2002 is a reference for automatic parking applications.
Turkish blind pop singer Metin Senturk has defied the odds by breaking the world speed record for driving by a visually-impaired person.
Metin reached a new record of 182.03 miles per hour, in his Ferrari F430, with a 600 horsepower engine.
Verifying the accuracy of radar and other sensors can now be performed objectively and with high precision. The RT-Range is used for the accurate measurement of the relative motion between vehicles and precise measurement of lane position. Typical applications include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and Collision Warning Systems.
Datron are pleased to announce the UK agency for Suchy Data Systems who's products are developed specificaly for Automotive Test Applications where comprehensive data is required from test drive programs.
Suchy's products have been designed after many years of technical feedback from real-world test engineers and test program managers.
Verifying the accuracy of radar and other sensors can now be performed objectively and with high precision. The RT-Range is used for the accurate measurement of the relative motion between two vehicles and precise measurement of lane position. Typical applications include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and Collision Warning Systems.
DATRON are pleased to announce a new range of data recorders from ISAAC INSTRUMENTS INC.
Based on a wealth of experience and customer feedback ISAAC have completed a major redesign of their data recording systems and associated peripherals.
The NEW DRU900 series data recorders now have universally programmable sensor inputs so any sensor with digital or analogue signal output can be connected to any user specified input channel.If using a sensor from Isaac's extensive range then set-up and calibration is simply done by entering the sensor serial number into the configuration software.
Datron now have a complete range of Sensors and Data Acquisition systems which are ideal for development and fleet testing of ALL types of Low Carbon Vehicles.
Datron are please to introduce the latest development from Vericom Computers a U.S.-based company who's products are fast becoming a world-wide standard in Vehicle Performance testing and Police Department Accident Investigation work.
LTI Vehicles and their predecessors have been building the world famous "London Taxi" since 1948.(see www.lti.co.uk)
The sensor measures relative motion - point it at what you want to measure. Either the sensor or the target may be moving - or both simultaneously. The sensor may be used to measure the speed of a surface such as the ground.
