    Just installed the plug-in and motec and it’s great :)
    Silly question though and I’ve probably missed a step but my telemetry seems to be missing the steering input
    What have I missed?

    The standard MoTeC displays are linked to specific outputs that might not match the plugin output. If you don’t have anything showing it’s either this or you haven’t opened up the telemetry as there are other outputs. If so then they are in the channel list which is detailed in the first post? You can then align the MoTeC chart with any of the available outputs from the plugin.

    Hi,

    Scoopscat7's reply has probably covered this off, matching the channel name in the graph(s) is obviously required for anything to show.

    If you're just getting started with a project, or i2Pro, or telemetry in general, you should be aware there are 2 things that relate to 'steering':
    • Steering wheel angle, which the plugin logs as "Steering Wheel Position"
    • Steered angle, which you will need to calculate yourself
    Steering wheel position is obviously an indication of what you did with the steering wheel, so is certainly relatable, but depending on the steering ratio a given input here may not be comparable to an input in a different car or with a different setup.

    Steered Angle is often used instead, and represents the direction of the front wheels (in relation to the car body). This is not only consistent across car setups and different cars, but also tends to be more useful in other calculations. Though I guess those two aspects are really products of the same thing.

    Simplest way to get Steered Angle is to create a new Maths expression for it, and define it as ('Toe FL' [deg]+'Toe FR' [deg])/2

    Then, as usual, you'd need to add it to a Time/Distance graph, or use it in other expressions if desired.
