VBOX 3i V3 | 100Hz Data Logger

VBOX 3i V3 is the pinnacle of the VBOX product range. Using a powerful GPS engine, VBOX 3i V3 logs data at 100 times a second.

With IMU integration, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, compact flash card logging and audio functionality for voice tagging, the VBOX 3i V3 represents a flexible solution to a range of testing requirements.

IMU Integration
VBOX 3i V3 has the ability to utilise data from a Racelogic IMU and uses a Kalman Filter to improve all parameters measured in real-time. IMU integration ensures accurate test results in areas of unreliable satellite reception, typically caused by trees, buildings and bridges.

The vehicle's body angles are also measured to a high accuracy without the need to use a dual antenna system. Dynamic overshoot is eliminated through lever arm correction.

Accuracy
Velocity and heading data are calculated from Doppler Shift in the GPS carrier signal, providing users with unparalleled accuracy. For example, over 10 tests between two light barriers placed exactly 1000m apart, the VBOX will report a distance within ±2-3cm, on every test, and the average comes out to within less than 1cm. Impressive for a device using satellites 18,000kms away!

Brake distance accuracy is equally impressive, using a brake pedal mounted trigger input, VBOX 3i V3 will measure the braking distance to within ±1.8cm for a typical 100-0kph brake stop. More about GPS accuracy.

VBOX 3i V3 comes in three versions, single antenna, dual antenna and (dual antenna) RTK. In conjunction with a DGPS Base Station VBOX 3i V3 can achieve a positional accuracy of 80cm.

VBOX 3i SL – DUAL ANTENNA 100 Hz(VB3ISL)

By using two GPS + GLONASS engines configured in a 'Fixed Baseline RTK setup', VBOX 3i Dual Antenna (VB3iSL) combines high level accuracy and test repeatability with the ability to measure slip and pitch/roll angles at 100Hz.

The system is so accurate that it can even detect the difference a side wind makes to the slip angle measurement, a feat that even the very best inertial systems cannot currently replicate. Watch a demo video here.

Higher accuracy with GPS and GLONASS
In addition to GPS, the VB3iSL tracks the Russian GLONASS range of satellites. The advantage of using both satellite constellations is that there are almost twice as many satellites in view, helping to maintain a robust satellite connection and increasing the accuracy of the system. More about GPS accuracy.

Slip and Pitch/Roll measurement using two antennas
Utilising two GPS/GLONASS antennas, the VB3iSL measures all of the normal VBOX GPS parameters, plus the azimuth and elevation between the antennas, i.e. the direction the antennas are pointing, and the angle between them measured from the horizontal. This allows the unit to measure slip angle, and also pitch angle (or roll angle depending on how the antennas are mounted), all at 100Hz. This system is ideal for vehicle dynamics testing.

VBOX 3i SL Dual Antenna RTK 100 Hz

The VBOX 3i Dual Antenna RTK (VB3iSLR) is an RTK enabled version of the VBOX 3i Dual Antenna (VB3iSL) which can be used in conjunction with an RTK differential Base Station to obtain centimeter level positioning accuracy combined with all of the advantages of a twin antenna GPS setup with GLONASS satellite tracking.

This is our top-of-the-range VBOX data logger and can be used in any number of vehicle tests where positional accuracy and repeatability are of the utmost importance.

2cm Positional Accuracy
For tests where positional accuracy is of key importance, like lane departure testing, distance to a fixed object, or precise mapping, the VB3iSLR offers industry-leading 2cm positional accuracy, in real time, at 100Hz!
VBOX Dual Antenna RTK is the key component of the Racelogic ADAS Testing systems for measuring vehicle separation, time to collision, position within a lane, and more to 2cm precision.

Slip and Pitch/Roll measurement using two antennas
Utilising two GPS/GLONASS antennas, the VBOX 3i Dual Antenna RTK measures all of the normal VBOX GPS parameters, plus the azimuth and elevation between the antennas, i.e. the direction the antennas are pointing, and the angle between them measured from the horizontal. This allows the unit to measure slip angle, and also pitch angle (or roll angle depending on how the antennas are mounted), all at 100Hz.
Both the VBOX and the Base Station track the Russian GLONASS range of navigation satellites as well as the normal GPS constellation, using almost twice as many measurements for accurate results and reception in areas of poor satellite visibility. Read more on VBOX GPS accuracy.

VBOX IISX | 5/10/20 Hz Data Loggers

Available with an update rate of 20, 10 or 5 times a second, the VBOX IISX features a built in display, SD card logging, high speed brake trigger input, CAN interface and two sets of analogue and digital outputs.

Due to its small size and simple installation, VBOX IISX is ideally suited for use in cars, bikes, off road vehicles and boats.

If you don't want to use a Base Station, then the VBOX IISX range of GPS data loggers gives the highest 'stand alone' positional accuracy of our range, utilising the free WAAS/EGNOS correction service to give <1m positional accuracy.

Positional accuracies of 40cm (standard) or 20cm (optional) are also available when used in conjunction with a Racelogic DGPS Base Station.

VBOX IISX Dual Antenna | 20 Hz

The VBOX IISX Dual Antenna has all the features of a VBOX IISX single antenna version, but contains a second GPS engine.

By using two GPS engines configured in a 'fixed baseline RTK setup', extra parameters such as slip and pitch angle (or in an alternative configuration roll angle) can be measured.

Due to its small size and simple installation, VBOX IISX is ideally suited for use in cars, bikes, off road vehicles and boats.

If you don't want to use a Base Station, then the VBOX IISX range of GPS data loggers gives the highest 'stand alone' positional accuracy of our range, utilising the free WAAS/EGNOS correction service to give <1m positional accuracy.

Differential GPS Base Station - RLVBBS2 & RLVBBS3

DriftBox is for official competition judging, and communicates in real time to the judges via a radio telemetry system. This system is based on two GPS systems, with antennas placed in line on the roof of the car. Drift Angle is the difference between the Direction of travel and the Direction the vehicle is pointing.

PerformanceBox is a version of DriftBox, which was launched in early 2006 to wide acclaim. Subsequent to this success it was decided that a version of DriftBox which does not include the yaw rate sensor, and which therefore cannot measure drift angle, would be a worthy addition to the Racelogic product range.
