  • VBB files
    • ‘VBB’ binary log files are created by VB3i (V3 firmware) and VB3i ADAS.
  • The new 25 Hz VBOX Speed Sensor (VBSS25).
  • The new VBOX IISX-V3.
  • Channels are now listed in ‘groups’, with the ability to search by channel name:

Channel groups may be collapsed or expanded by using the arrows next to the group name.

All groups may be collapsed or expanded simultaneously using the icon that appears next to the Search bar at the top of the channel list.

  • The position of VBOX subject and target(s) is now visible on the map in both online and offline modes:


  • ADAS elements now displayed on map if present in VBB file:
  • Lines (i.e. lane edges)
  • Static Targets
  • Sign Posts

ADAS elements can be hidden or recoloured in the ‘Path/Outline’ area on the ‘map’ ribbon tab.

  • When you are in online mode with VB3i (V3 firmware) and VB3i ADAS, any configured channel can be selected and included in the VBOX serial output without the need to use VBOX Setup.
  • VBOX Test Suite uses only ‘FIPS compliant’ encryption algorithms.

  • Video is now available in ‘Custom Test’.

    • Previously, the video could only be seen in ‘Workspace’.

  • ‘Cut’ feature can now be used when multiple files are open – open files will be cut simultaneously.

  • Double-clicking on an ‘interim result’ column cell now sets the cursor to that location in the chart. 

  This makes it easy to see where an interim condition has occurred. InterimResult-curserlocation.png
  • File Info for VBB files is available in the File menu.

    • This information includes diagnostics data and lets you add a custom scale and offset to the logged channels.

    • Optimized report to reduce width
    • Added ‘Overlapping Judgement’ validation
    • Prevent blank columns in the Excel export
    • Prevent merged cells appearing in results tables when output to Excel
    • Include dates within the report header
    • Allow more data to fit on the page
  • R51 Pass-by-Noise - added End Line Offset configuration option.
    • This is to allow the test to end after the end line.
  • Park Assist
    • Added extra channels that compute the angle difference between the body heading of the vehicle and the parking lines.
    • Performance of live map improved.
  • Amendments to the Coastdown SAE J2263 plugin
    • It will adhere to recent regulation changes to reduce wind speed tolerances.
  • Performance improvements for ‘map’ and ‘dashboard’ when in online mode.

    • This is to reduce the likelihood of UI lag when you are running long tests.

  • Chart display improvements for data that crosses UTC midnight or is more than 24 hours long.

  • The latest VB3i drivers are now available via Windows Update
