CNH Industrial

Data-logging system for in-vehicle testing

 

The goals

CNH Industrial, a leading designer and manufacturer of machinery for agricultural and construction equipment, industrial vehicles, buses and trucks, needs a data-logging system for in-vehicle tests that:

  • Is intuitive, easy to use while driving the vehicle;
  • Allows operator to switch quickly from one sensor configuration to the other in order to minimize setup time;
  • Measures 50 signals of temperature and 16 signals of pressure analyzed together with all the signals coming from CAN control unit, included GPS speed data;
  • Saves data in open formats, readable with a variety of post-analysis tools.

 

The solution

To meet the demand of CNH Industrial a stand-alone system was chosen. The solution consists of a touch screen connected to an Embedded Compact DAQ on which iDaq and Easy Data Logger, two software solutions developed by T4SM, were installed.
iDaq is a configurable and expandable software for data acquisition that through Easy Data Logger application it is saved to a file. iDaq simplifies each test and measurement operation due to ease of setup and the ability to switch from one configuration to another in just one click. iDaq also allows processing, visualization and storage of CAN bus signals together with signals coming from DAQ modules.
Easy Data Logger, an add-on for iDaq, allows saving data in an easy and fast way thanks to its customizable interface and the ability to create synoptic panels in a few clicks.

 

Benefits and results

The major benefit is the user-friendliness of the system that allows technical team to run tests focusing on their work. The touch screen allows checking the measurements without interfering with the vehicle driving. The ability to switch from one configuration to another in a few clicks allows to greatly reduce the setup time.

T4SM support has always been timely and punctual, it has always managed to meet our needs and to find solutions to problems occurring during start-up of new equipment. The provided software has largely fulfilled the expectations and it has proved it is an easy-to-use tool.
