Lateral velocity to all lines

Software Releases

June 14, 2010

The RT-Range now computes and outputs the lateral velocity of the vehicle compared to all the lane markings (lines). This complements the lateral position output compared to all the lane markings, which has been available since the RT-Range was first introduced.

The normal line outputs of the RT-Range switch automatically to new lines as the vehicle moves from one lane to the next. However, for some tests it is necessary to continue tracking the old lines. By using the new outputs that track the velocity compared to all the lines, the velocity compared to the old lane, as well as the position, can be measured.

The new outputs are available on the CAN bus, the Real-time display and in RT-Range Post-process. They will be available in RT-View when it is next released.
