Digital Data Analysis is part of De Montfort University FdSc in forensic collision investigation.
Many of the on board vehicle systems found today use a combination of accelerometers and GPS inputs, CPU's, Insurance telematics, performance computers and, to a lesser extent,digital tachographs. In this module we will be looking at the accelerometer and GPS units in a raw data format. How the data can be smoothed, graphed and used. As importantly we will start to look at when not to use the data.
The module is new and currently being redeveloped for delivery from Sept' 2022.
Starting with what is an accelerometer the module develops to look at triggering, damping and the way in which some multi-directional devices deal with multiple force directions. You will be introduced to how analogue waveforms are converted to digital data, the binary number system and data sampling. You will be asked to consider differing sample rates and what the effects may be.
We assume that you hold a CertHE or have studied Applied maths to get the most from this module.
Some of the maths will not have been covered at UCPD level but will have been covered in Applied maths. Some of the assessments require the use of a spreadsheets, (Microsoft Excel) thus you will need to be able to use Excel to complete the module. Click on Entry level on the menu bar and select our free Excel course.
6 weeks distance learning.
Your joining instructions list any specific requirements. General tools include a scientific calculator. We recommend any Casio with a 'Natural Display'. Microsoft Excel, Apple's Numbers or similar.
Your tutors will help you with your studies during the module. They will mark and comment on your final exam and coursework.
