GPS-Based Sensor measures speed and position of vehicles.

QIC-Speed Sensor utilizes wireless, friction-free GPS technology to test and log measurements of on- and off-road vehicles. It calculates speed and direction continuously at 20 Hz rate by monitoring Doppler shift of received GPS signals as vehicle is in motion. Speed is measured with 0.1 km/h accuracy and distance is measured with 0.25 cm accuracy. During acceleration or braking, software...
