Time gap output from RT-Range

Software Releases

June 13, 2010

140_TimegapThe RT-Range already computes time to collision but for many applications it is important to know the “time gap”. This is the amount of time it will take for the hunter to get to the current position of the target.

The time gap output is computed using the velocity of the hunter and the longitudinal range to the target. The new output is available on the CAN bus, in the Real-time display and in RT-Range Post-process. When the new version RT-View is released it will be included with RT-View as well.

Unlike the longitudinal range, the time gap output is less dependent on speed. For example, the expected time gap output is the same whether the test is conducted at 40km/h or 90km/h. The longitudinal range would probably be double at the higher speed. This makes it easier to compare tests that are conducted at different speeds.
