Velocity Scanner Development



About the Client

The client is a market leader in vehicle system repair system manufacturing.

Business need

The client envisaged to design and develop Velocity Scanner, a frame straightening and measuring equipment used as a vehicle repair system based on a reference design. It uses two lasers reflected off rotating mirrors to triangulate precise 3D locations on the frame of a damaged vehicle. The process met various challenges,some of them being:

  • The biggest challenge was to obtain a measurement resolution of one millimeter on a target at five meters distance with each hub (mirror) measurement having an angular accuracy of 0.001 degrees
  • Longevity of the design in terms of critical components and selection of readily available motors that would contribute towards long viability of the design

Solution delivered

  • Designed mixed signal micro-controller C8051F132 having a high speed 8051 µc core with built in 128K banked flash and 8k RAM
  • Developed Schematic capture, BOM, Board layout, routing, Gerber and costing for prototype production
  • Developed testing and diagnostic softwares
  • Functions of the micro-controller include Time-stamping sync and target events, Event Data Buffering, Calibration Data Storage, Motor Speed, Serial Communication and Laser Control

Business benefits

  • Long term one-time investment
  • Precisely accurate

Technology stack

  • C8051F132 micro-controller with built-in 128k flash & 8k RAM
  • 128KB of External RAM
