Data Logging Training – The cost of test vehicles has forced OEMs and suppliers to decrease their testing fleets; engineers are forced to share more, and do more with less vehicle time. Logging data from test vehicles has become crucial in validation and testing. To support these needs, Intrepid now offers Data Logger Training for both wireless and standalone data capture. See class outline here. Cost: Free to ICS customers.
