The aim of the test was to check the V2 hardware was operating correctly primarily with the basic inputs of RPM & laps. But we also had the following sensors connected to my Rotax kart;
3 axis G sensor
The test was successful. 50 lap were complete in horrible conditions, with zero data errors.
This was my first visit to Matchams – it is a tight & twisty track with a couple of fast corners. Probably, in the wet, a bit too tight, but it was fun and I think would be a great track for pro-karts & cadets.
V2 prototype hardware, for the KC-t, is built, bench tested and ready for track testing. I hope to get out on the track this week, probably at Matchams.
The V2 hardware has an internal temp sensor and inputs for;
High temp – exhaust etc.
4 x tyre temp.
2 x pedal position/pressure sensors
2 x analogue
2 Wheel Speed
Once this version of the hardware is tested and proves to be OK we will be building ten units fro reliability testing and customer appraisal.
