  • A Peak at McLaren Electronic Systems ALTUS Data Logging for F1 Monaco

    Scarbs F1 blog got a hold of a telemetry print out from a F1 team at Monaco and had Brian Jee, a ChampCar/IndyCar Data Acquisition/Electronics Engineer do a walk through.

    A cool peak at top shelf data logging suit with some configuration tricks.



    I liked how each channel is prefixed with a letter denoting the type of unit of measurement of the calibrated output from the sensor with which it is associated.


    v = Velocity, positional displacement over a given time
    N = Number, quantitative indication
    r = Percentage, relativity to a total
    a = Angle, geometric displacement about a vertex
    p = Pressure, force applied to a reference
    M = Magnitude, scalar identity
    B = Bit, bit indicator. For example, binary 1 or 0 indicates on or off
    T = Time

    Much more goodness in the full article.
