WEBINAR: RLD Collection & Analysis - are you forgetting the basics?
Date: 23 July, 1-2pm
Presenter: David Ensor
Who should attend
This webinar is aimed at those who collect or analyse road load or real life data. It will provide a refresher for more experienced engineers or an introduction for those new to the field. It can be easy to take the fundamentals for granted and inadvertently make simple mistakes when collecting or analysing data. David will address the questions you should ask before setting off to collect or analyse hours, or even days, of data, enabling you to produce accurate and valuable results.
Several topics will be discussed including: Sensor basics - are you using the right sensor to measure what you want? Testing variables – do you understand or even trust the data you have collected? Do you know your data is statistically representative? Do you know why you are collecting or using the data? Are your goals clear, and investigating the right things? Most importantly is your data useable & useful in the test, analysis or development?
