Wireless Data Acquisition System
Source: Bradley University
The Wireless Data Acquisition System (WiDAS) is intended to be used with the Bradley University SAE Formula Car. The Bradley University Formula SAE car is a yearly project task for mechanical engineering seniors. WiDAS will gather data from the SAE car and display important information to the driver through a LCD screen mounted in the car. Data will also be wirelessly transmitted to an off-track laptop where the data can be displayed and recorded. Transmitted data includes information such as car velocity, engine speed, acceleration, engine coolant and air temperatures, oil pressure, and suspension travel. The in-car display is an Amulet Technologies LCD touch screen, and a pair of Aerocomm transceivers is used for wireless transmission.
