The data acquisition is essential, and from this, together with the
the rider sensations, coming out the directions on how to improve
the set-up of the motorcycle on the track. The race engineer or the technician
intended to this role must have the capacity and the ability to
interpret the data acquired to translate them into appropriate
directions of set-up. The task is difficult because the data acquired
not explicitly indicate the problems and how to solve them, and then
the technician must rely on their own experience to make the
correct set-up evaluations and choices.
Racing Bike Analysis instead allows you to
exploit the data acquired
to obtain information more easily interpretable and to evaluate in
advance the effects of the changes of set-up that you
intend to do, about the behavior of the motorcycle and of the tires.
In fact the software through the data acquired calculates the
dynamic behavior of the motorcycle , this allows firstly
to analyze the performance in a more clear and explicit.
How it works?
1. Go on track for your session
2. Download the data acquired
3. Import the data in Racing Bike Analysis
4. Obtain the informations for an optimal SET-UP
Thanks to the calculations made by the Racing Bike Analysis
software, the analysis of the data collected from the acquisition
will be much easier and more complete. In fact, thanks to the
calculations made, the software allows you to immediately have that
information to understand where the problems are and then direct the
interventions set-up in the optimal direction.
SLIP ANGLE ANALYSIS - UNDERSTEER - OVERSTEER
The software in the first place calculates the behavior of the motorbike in
every point on the track clearly showing where there are problems
of understeer and where of oversteer
|The software shows
directly on the track the criticalities emerged then
immediately you can have a picture of the situation,
useful also to compare it with the feeling reported by the
It also calculates average, what is the situation in the
different driving phases:
braking - entry corner
exit corner - acceleration
Already from this first result it is clear that thanks to Racing
Bike Analysis software will have an immediate answer on where are
and what are the problems that limit the performance.
This is even more important when comparing the
results of two runs performed with different set-up in fact it is
immediate to see how the changes made have influenced the
motorbike behavior in the different points of the track.
||As you can see in this
example, thanks to the software, it is immediately clear how
the changes made to the set-up used in Run 2 have
allowed to reduce understeer at some points in the
track and this is essential to orientate the
Another fundamental aspect in competitions is to understand how
the tires are working, the software thanks to its calculations
allows you to have a complete picture also for this aspect.
For first calculates the grip that the tires were able
to provide during the lap under consideration, and how the grip that tires
have provided changes in function of the loads that there are on the wheels,
this information is very important to understand how the set-up that is
used make working the tires, and session later
session, the analysis of this data will give you immediate answers
on how effective is your setup and how can be improved to
obtain the maximum from the tires.
CALCULATION TEMPERATURE TIRES
|Another fundamental aspect
to get the maximum grip performance is the management
of the tire temperatures, for this the Racing Bike Analysis software in function of the acquired data and of the dynamic calculation, calculates the trend
of the tire temperature during the lap and how it grows
during the laps . This is crucial both in the analysis phase for
understand how the tires are working at every point of the track,
both when you want to compare different set-up to see how
these affect the temperature of the tires.
The software calculates how the tire temperature changes
in the central area, on the right side and on the left side ,
this can be very useful even for the rider to understand
the possible points of the track where the tire tends to
cool and goes out of working area,
or where it tends to overheat and therefore needs to do careful for not burn it excessively.
Another very important calculation that the Racing Bike software
Analysis performs processing the acquired data is the line that
it is traveled. Thanks to special filtering algorithms comes
calculated the radius of curvature and this is fundamental to understand
how the rider is driving, in fact from the analysis of the radius of
curvature it is possible to see in which corners the rider is in
difficulty, and where his guide is not clean.
In the example we clearly see how thanks to this
calculation is easy to identify the curves where the rider has
had difficulty (yellow circle), compared to where it took
the apex point without problems (green circle)
CALCULATION BEHAVIOR OF THE SUSPENSIONS and MOTORCYCLE BALANCE
To perform the above calculations, the Racing Bike software
Analysis of course calculates the behavior of the suspension in
each point of the track , and shows how this translates
on the balance of the motorbike, in fact in addition to see how work
fork, shock absorber and swingarm, allows to analyze
weight distribution, wheelbase and height of the center of gravity.
What has been shown above is only a part of what is calculated by the software, in fact Racing Bike Analysis allows you to exploit the acquired data to make a complete analysis of how the motorbike behaved in all its aspects , below we show you an overview of all the areas of analysis calculated, which in addition to the summary can then be analyzed in specific charts to see the value
of the different quantities at each point of the tracks
In addition to these fundmentals calculations for clearly understand the
behavior that the motorbike has had and therefore know how to orientate the
set-up in the correct direction , the Racing Bike Analysis software
also performs a calculation that can be useful during development
of a motorbike . Indeed inserting the torsional stiffness of the motorbike is
possible to see the twist that has had the chassis in the different
points of the track and how this affects the behavior of the
motorbike creating more or less understeer or oversteer.
As you have seen from this short description the Racing Bike Analysis software
is a fundamental tool to be able to take advantage in a manner really productive of the data acquired from the acquisition of the
motorbike. The technicians and track engineers of a team thank the use of
this software can have a big help in the
work , in fact the data and information calculated by the
software allow you to have clear and complete indications on how
the motorbike and the tires have behaved in all its aspects , and
then take the optimal decisions to improve the set-up of the
motorbike will be much simpler and more effective.
