Assessing Accuracy of Vehicle Event Data based on CAN Messages

by Carsten Mueller, Jeremy Daily, and Mauricio Papa

SAE Paper Number: 2012-01-1000

A pdf of the presentation is available here.

There are two examples given during the presentation at the SAE World Congress. The first discusses the data from a crash test with a DDEC 10 controlled Freightliner, and the second is an example of a Critical Speed Yaw test of a 2012 Toyota Corolla. These examples are actually different than those presented in the paper, but the concept is the same.

The Python computer script used to generate images of the time history of the data is available for download. This will produce a pdf file with 782 graphics that is based on a log file in ASCII format generated by a Vector CANCase XL Log. The docoding script also produces a message ID inventory that gives a rough estimate of timing properties. The following files contain the speed signals:

Wheel Speed Graphic CAN 0B2 Output.pdf

Wheel Speed Graphic CAN 0B0 Output.pdf

Speed from ID 610 Output.pdf

Speed from ID 302 Output.pdf (this is the VBox signal transmitted on the CAN)

The supporting documentation for the Arduino is available.

Speed Accuracy of Event Data Recorder in the 2010 and 2011 Toyota Camry During Steady State and Braking Conditions

by Richard Ruth, Wade Bartlett, and Jeremy Daily

SAE Paper Number: 2012-01-0999

The raw data for this paper is available in SAE2012ToyotaDataArchive.zip. This archive contains CDR reports, VBox data, and CAN data.


Analysis of Critical Speed Yaw Scuffs Using Spiral Curves

by Jeremy Daily

SAE Paper Number: 2012-01-0606

The presentation is linked here in PDF format.

This paper introduces the idea of fitting curved tire marks from a critical speed yaw (CSY) to spiral curves. Three spiral curves are examined: 1) Clothoid Spirals, 2) Logarithmic Spirals, and 3) Archimedean Spirals. It was found that Logarithmic Spirals are the most appropriate for this application.

In the paper, there are tables from Excel spreadsheets. These spreadsheets are available below:

Part of the data reduction uses a Hypergeometric Function. That implementation was done in Mathematica. The notebook (.nb) file is Mathematica Archemedian Arc Length Calculation Notebook and the printout of that notebook is ArchemedianArcLengthCalculation.pdf.

The spreadsheets have links amongst themselves to perform some comparisons, so it is recommended to store all the files in the same directory.

Some additional tests were conducted to generate some realistic curved tire mark data. The first test was described in the paper, and the data from the other two are available here.

The raw data from the total station measurements are in the archive: Maps.zip

The following Video VBox files are available for three tests:

The data from the Racelogic VBox 3i (100 Hz) are available:

The scanned field notes are available here and contain the chord and middle ordinate measurements.
