Automotive Data Logger for Formula Student Racing ECU
Case Studies / FT 2017
About: Formula Technion 2017 is a student race team from Israel Institute of Technology - the team took their formula car for races in Formula Student AU (FSA) and DE (FSG)
What problem did you solve?
We needed CAN bus data from all the sensors in our car. These were connected to an automotive controller (M220 by Pi Innovo), outputting readings to the CAN bus - incl. e.g. suspension potentiometers, steering rack sensors and hall effect encoders. The engine control unit (ECU) and power distribution module (PDM) were also connected
How did you solve it?
We connected the CL2000 to log data during test drives and the 2017 season
What BENEFIT has this led to?
The great amount of data from test drives allowed us to validate our dynamic models and the car's performance. This allowed us to design a real-time control system for the car (an active anti-roll bar this year)
"The CL2000 is a great piece of hardware!"
Why did you choose the CLX000?
It is reliable, easy to configure, very light and has plenty of storage capacity
