The DP²4R datalogger records and stimulates raw data from high density data sources and sensors, e.g. from radar detectors. It is hence a central feature of a HiL (hardware-in-the loop) simulator, used for example in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. Background: Modern sensors deliever a vast amount of raw data that are pre-processed at place and only transmitted in a more abstract form. This, however, disables the option of testing the pre-processing algorithms in complex environments, as the sensor data cannot be reproduced for testing purposes.
With a data-pickup unit directly connected to the sensor the DP²4R datalogger can record up to 320MBit/s of raw data from each sensor. One system connects up to four data-pickup units, a camera signal and a GPS position signal. This allows precise recordings of the sensor signal for analysis purposes. Furthermore, the original sensor information can be played back in a simulation setup for system and algorithm optimization. So the DP²4R datalogger supports a maximum efficient and reliable system design process.
