Fundamentals of Vehicle Data Collection 19 April 2016

NVH Sim2ext2v2This event was held on 19 April 2016 at HORIBA MIRA.

This event was aimed at Engineers and Technicians who are interested in data collection on motor vehicles. The day followed the processes required during a typical data collection; from initial specification, through installation, data collection and data handling. The focus was more practical than theoretical and there was an opportunity to look at a vehicle that has been prepared for data collection, as well as a tour of the HORIBA MIRA test track.
