P18223: Doc B Racing Telemetry


Project Summary Project Information

The embedded racing telemetry platform is an end to end system for data acquisition in a racing environment. The system will use a host of sensors and an onboard processor to log useful racing metrics during an event. This data is then made available to the user for review on a mobile platform.

Core telemetry takes on the following forms: GPS location, tire surface temperature, accelerometer readings, and timing analysis for lap times. In addition to these core functions a library of additional sensors will be available via auxiliary connectors.

It is the intent of this system to provide racers with a dynamic tuning environment, both for their driving practices and vehicles. By creating a modular and affordable system, a wide variety of vehicles may take advantage of the system, even those lacking an ECU. By conforming to industry standards in data transmission protocols, modernized cars can further extend the domain of information available.

Due to Intellectual Property constraints, the rest of the project details will be private here.
