  • Park two vehicles aligned in a straight line bumper to bumper, Target ahead, Subject behind.
  • Measure the distance between the primary antenna (or IMU if IMU integration is enabled) of the Target vehicle and the rear bumper of the Target vehicle.

  • Use VBOX Manager to select 'Subject' within the 'ADAS Function' menu then choose either 'Subject Vehicle Contact Points', 'Target Vehicle 1 Contact Points' or 'Target Vehicle 2 Contact Points'.
  • Select 'Set Point'.
  • Move the antenna to another desired point of contact and repeat the process until all the desired points are set, or a limit of 24 is reached.
  • Move the antenna to the location of antenna A and select 'Set Antenna A', or if you are intending to use IMU Integration, move the antenna to the location of the IMU04 and select 'Set Antenna A'.
