Abstract: The selected car is a commercial vehicle (VW Transporter van) with a 5-cylinder diesel engine. The engine speed is relatively low, varying between 1500-2500 rpm. The van was driven around a set of roundabouts and straights for approx. 5 minutes, the maximum speed on the straight road was 50 mph. The data streams are included in .mat file, titled with the location of each data segments. There are 7 columns of data that represent: time (in seconds), x-axis raw data (in mV), y-axis raw data (in mV), z-axis raw data (in mV), x-axis acceleration (in g), y-axis acceleration (in g), and z-axis acceleration (in g). Features: a) Engine turn-off at 267.5 s (1 seconds of shaking) b) Data starts at 10.06s c) Straight road section: 80 - 125 seconds
