Verifying Senso Wheel
- Now we need to run the Senso Wheel GUI application. It should be in the following directory - C:\Users\Owner\Documents\Senso\Wheel\GUI.
- Click and run the application.
- Click on the “Switch On” button. The GUI should like the following image.
- Now grab the steering when and turn the wheel all the way to the left and all the way to the right and confirm that the wheel icon on the GUI is also turning towards the same direction you are turning the wheel to. Also confirm that the torque and velocity bars are adjusting as well.
Verifying Senso Pedals
- Before verifying the pedals, it is important that you close the Senso Wheel GUI before proceeding. After that is done, open the Senso Pedals GUI application which is located in C:\Users\Owner\Documents\Senso\Pedals\GUI.
- You should get the following screen below.
- Click on the “Connect” button and the GUI should now look like below.
- Now click on the “Open Gas Pedal Control View” button to verify the gas pedals. You should get the following screen below.
- Click on the “Start Pedal” button on the top left corner and you should get the following warning.
- Select “OK’ and the gas pedal should now move into position as well as display that the pedal is in the On State in the Senso Pedal GUI. Now place foot on gas pedal and accelerate and decelerate the gas pedal. Verify that the blue marker on the graph moves according to the amount you accelerate/decelerate on the gas pedal as shown in the image below.
- Next we need to verify the brake pedals. Back on the main screen, in the Senso Pedals GUI, select the “Open Brake Pedal Control View” button and you should get the following screen below.
- Click on the “Start Pedal” button and you should get a similar warning that the pedal will move into position for testing. Continue by selecting ok and wait for the brake pedal to complete moving into an active position. Now place foot on brake pedal and verify that the blue marker on the graph moves and corresponds to the amount of brake applied by your foot.
