is some brief information on a few vehicle dynamics
applications we are currently developing.
Construction and rendering
of a 3D model of a Ford Falcon AU V8.
of the model during construction can be viewed by
following the link at left.
We are currently developing
a real-time viewer to display Motec Data Logger
information in the form of a 3D car model moving
on the computer screen.
Force arrows indicate the accelerations acting on
the vehicle at any time. Engine speed is
indicated by sound and the front wheels show
actual driver steering inputs.
This will enable the viewer to calculate the velocity and intended change of direction. This model will come in useful for a variety of 3D
processes, from the demonstration of the engine itself to constructing a 3D demonstration of safety for
The force arrows and engine speed sounds will help construction of a realistic car journey or movement around a track.

Real Time Viewers
We currently have 3D car
viewer programs for displaying motion paths in
real time. These can display motions for one car
alone, or two cars at once.
Being real-time applications
these programs require a fast computer and an
OpenGL compatible graphics card.
