Commercial suppliers of data acquisition systems provide products used
to improve the design and performance of competition cars. The Mechanical
Engineering Department requested the design of a data acquisition system
that could aid in static and dynamic testing and record events significant
to a driver's performance. The system includes sensors, signal processing
circuitry, microcontroller, controlling and user interfacing software,
and retrievable data storage devices that can place data in a downloadable
format to MATLAB. This presentation provides for review of the design's
description, justification, and recommendations for future development.
