ADAS Moving Base Setup

More information on this can be found here.

Place one VBOX into each vehicle - one will be the subject vehicle and one or two will be the target vehicle(s). Racelogic recommend that the first target vehicle is used as the moving base. This means that the subject vehicle is only receiving the separation and correction data, not both sending and receiving it. This improves the reliability of the data.

In the Subject vehicle

  • Mount the GPS Antenna in the centre of the roof at the highest point away from obstructions (more info)
  • Attach the Antenna cable to the VBOX Antenna socket
  • Connect a CAN splitter (RLVBACS024) into the CAN port
  • Connect a Serial splitter (RLVBACS024/1) into the Serial port
  • Connect the MB ROVER radio into the CAN port
  • Connect the VBOX Manager into the CAN port
  • Apply power to the power connector
  • Use VBOX Manager to change DGPS to MB Rover
  • Use VBOX Manager to enable either Single Target or Multi Target Subject Vehicle ADAS mode

In the First Target vehicle

  • Mount the GPS antenna in the centre of the roof at the highest point away from obstructions (more info)
  • Attach the Antenna cable to the VBOX Antenna socket
  • Connect the Telemetry radio into the Serial port
  • Connect the MB BASE radio into the CAN port
  • Apply power to the power connector
  • Use VBOX Manager to change DGPS to MB Base
  • Use VBOX Manager to enable either Single Target or Multi Target Target Vehicle 1 ADAS mode

In the Second Target vehicle (if required)

Using VBOX Manager in both vehicles

  • Check LOG RATE is set to '100 Hz'
