Validating Brake Performance on a Prototype Passenger Car

CAS DataLoggers recently supplied an advanced DAQ system for an automotive manufacturer who needed to evaluate the reliability of a prototype vehicle’s braking system. The front disk pad temperatures, MPH, average deceleration and braking duration all needed to be recorded immediately before the brakes were applied. Therefore the customer needed a data acquisition device which could quickly ‘drill down’ on the braking event’s data and store the data on external RAM, and which also offered flexible communications capabilities with a PC.
