Test Product Concept(s)
Table of Contents
1. Vacuum Chamber test - Ability to see if altimeter can go higher then 100ft.
- Vacuum Chamber Test 1
- Vacuum Chamber Test 100-600 ft
- Vacuum Chamber Test 0-1800 ft
- Vacuum Chamber Test 2
2. Stair well test - Test accuracy and precision of sensor.
- Altitude Test 1 (in stairwell)
- Altitude Test 1 (raw data)
- Altitude Test 2 (in stairwell)
- Altitude Test 2 (raw data)
3. Car Test - See how well sensor measures across terrain.
Pitot-Static Tube1. Car Test - Testing against an anemometer across a varying range of velocities and accelerations.
2. Wind Tunnel Test - Testing against a hot-wire probe to get up to velocities that are higher than road speed limits.
3. Time Delay Test - Testing the time delay of the tubing connecting the Pitot-Static tube to the sensor.
GPS1. General Tests - Testing capabilities of the GPS in all of its measurements around the RIT loop. Results will be compared with Google earth locations and altitude.
a) Accuracy Test - How accurate is the receiver compared with Google earth measurements?
b) Time Satellite Fix - How long does the receiver take to start using cold, warm, or hot starting-up mode?
c) Material Interference and Orientation effects Test - Does the orientation of the receiver or the material (box) interface have any effects on the data?
2. Comparison Test - This test is against the Altimeter and Pitot-Static Tube to see if any of these sensors might be redundant to the GPS.
