The cutting-edge PDR system was developed with Cosworth, the British motorsports-engineering company that supplies General Motors’ Racing Teams with data acquisition and telemetry systems.
Additionally, the system also collect over 140 data streams for the car’s various modules. Most of this data, such as tire pressure and temperature, G-force, steering input, and precise information about gearbox and engine performance can be viewed alongside the video and GPS tracking feeds through the free Cosworth toolbox software. It allows keen owners to optimize cars settings and driver performance.
The more track oriented customers can have full access to all the data if they purchase the full package software, a similar version of which is used by Cadillac Racing.
