Two of the most important and commonly used components in racing data acquisition today are engine RPM and speed analysis. These two channels of data give race teams and engineers critical information that can be used every day to help quantify changes in both the driver and the race vehicle. This 80-minute, online short course focuses on race car data acquisition, highlighting cornering speeds, engine acceleration rates, gear selection, engine RPM curves, shift times, throttle on/off, engine acceleration, wheel spin, brake lock, cornering speed, ignition cutout and much more.

Braking confidence and pedal feel are important braking performance attributes that should be optimized to achieve customer satisfaction with a vehicle's braking system. The relationship between the input force and travel provided by the driver to achieve the desired vehicle deceleration is as core to the vehicle personality or DNA as ride, handling, or driveability.This Fast Track will cover the main concepts and methods needed for tuning brake systems to desired pedal force and travel characteristics.

Stopping Distance is one of the most common metrics of a vehicle's braking performance and one of the most critical attributes of accident prevention and minimization. The measurements are used within the development of the vehicle and are a critical aspect of accident prevention, accident reconstruction, and overall occupant and pedestrian safety management. While the results of this metric are published in a variety of sources, the factors that differentiate vehicle performance, vehicle dynamics, and calculation of the braking performance required to achieve desired performance are not widely available.
