THE KIT CONSISTS OF AN ALL-IN-ONE BOX automotive computer which is powered with D-Lab3 measurement and analysis modules. D-Lab3 is an adaptable software for synchronous data capture and analysis for user and behavioral studies. The automotive computer provides several connectivity options such as CAN, USB, LAN, and EIA-232. The VTK is made to be used in standard vehicles and offers several connectivity options to analyze and benchmark a car together with human behaviour. The VTK allows to measure and analyze synchronously common driver behavioral data (Eye-Tracking, Video, Audio), driver performance data (CAN network data of the car, Mobileye, GPS) and experimental leader inputs (triggers, notes) using a standardized setup which is ready to use.

Data analysis

The kit analyzes the driver performance data using the integrated statistics function and analyzes all values per subject and/or across all subjects. Users can integrate all components of the kit in their test vehicle and establish cable connections between components. Additionally users can connect the kit to the 12 V power supply of the car. The kit enables users to freely define their D-Lab3 cockpit and observe all values in real-time. The product allows recording all values synchronously and users can see live data while driving. The VTK provides an removable hard disk for secure data export
