It’s trade show season, and we’re in the middle of it. So far we’ve gone to PRI in Indianapolis, and Autosport in Birmingham, UK. We had fun discussions about data logging, analysis, and racing in general at both shows. I hope that in a few months we can show the fruits of those contacts publicly. In the meantime, here are some pictures of some really cool kit.
Foolishly, I neglected to take pictures of the most exciting find of the two shows: Strain gauges that can be used to take real-time measurements of a kart’s frame. It would be quite exciting if we could use that to develop a vehicle dynamics model of a kart, and apply all the fancy simulation and prediction tools we have for big cars to karts.
