Data Loggers in Two-Wheelers

Data loggers have been in the industry for quite a while, and they have grown and evolved in many ways. From parameters ranging from how they function to how they seem today, the earlier versions may have felt impossible to work with. Today operating one is way more different, but working with one of them in the past must have felt like the most challenging task altogether. The dataloggers then were giants as compared to the ones we work with today. Technically speaking, they were huge, as an entire system had to be carried in a backpack with lots of wires that had to be connected between sensors and the system (data logger). The engineers used laptops to store the data collected as the logger's memory used to be very limited.

But with that size being the most significant concern and the arrangement in which the data logger worked with the vehicle lead to changes in the vehicle dynamics during test drives. Loose connections, broken cables, or any error in the wire arrangements lead to data losses, ruining the entire process. Also, its power consumption, expensive cost, and logistical issues made it impossible to test multiple vehicles for research and development, and such issues could not be overlooked.

God bless technology that this is not the case with the loggers today. They have not only become advanced and sophisticated in performance, but their sizes have reduced drastically. The compactness in size has enabled loggers to function longer without any backup batteries, resulting in reduced overall expenses. And with cost not being a concern, the vehicle fleet R&D has increased remarkably.

As a result, existing and prototype vehicles are sent to different parts of the country or outside the country to study vehicle usage patterns. To improve vehicle dynamics and performance, data is collected from various riders. The same activity is also performed when a persistent issue is reported from the same region that cannot be recreated at test centres. These data loggers offered at Influx enable engineers to

  • Log CAN network data and OBD data.

  • Use the inbuilt ADC input to connect various sensors to determine various vehicle dynamics.

  • The essential information can be streamed to the cloud server using the StreamLog system.

  • StreamLog enables one to monitor the incoming data on oscilloscopes.

  • All our dataloggers at Influx support 4G LTE.

  • The option to take out the data from the server and create daily reports i
