CAN diagnosis can help win races.
Data on how the most important components of this electric bike are performing is crucial. For this, Kvaser donated a Kvaser Eagle to be used in combination with the team’s existing Kvaser Memorator Professional datalogger and TKE’s CANtrace software, which decodes the CAN signals in real-time.
It’s a fact of life that technology that starts out in cars is invariably applied to motorbikes and vice versa, and it is certainly the case for CAN. However, whilst automotive datalogging for road and race applications is well developed, the size and lack of flexibility of most CAN interfaces mean that they haven’t lent themselves to motorbike datalogging, until now.
Electric RaceAbout (ERA), an engineering project run by Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with the prestigious Institute of Design, Lahti Polytechnic, is using Kvaser’s Eagle CAN interface and datalogger in the Battery Management System of its Electric sports car.
Chris Whiteford has started to build an advanced aerodynamic sensing network that, coupled with data from computer models from CFD / wind tunnel and real world testing, will optimise aerofoil positioning on race cars for maximum efficiency, completely automatically. Kvaser’s Memorator CAN datalogger and interface is being used to program the sensing network …
Students developing a collision avoidance system for a driverless car turn to Kvaser’s Leaf Light to debug their system …
‘High-Octane Motorsports’, a 50-strong Formula Student team from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany used Kvaser’s Blackbird SemiPro CAN-over-WLAN interface for on-track and in-race testing.
SATE, an Italian company that specializes in the simulation and fault diagnosis of automotive applications, machinery and plant, uses Kvaser’s Leaf Light CAN to USB interface to connect to a vehicle’s CANbus, design on-board diagnostic systems and deploy prototype demonstration applications.
Much information can be gleaned from a vehicle’s CAN bus, so where once OBD-II tools reigned, CAN dataloggers are now being requested in aftermarket automotive situations, including motorsport …
