This new system from Racelogic moves video data logging technology onto the next level, and is beneficial in the world of automotive testing.
Dual cameras record 1080p video at up to sixty frames per second and the output is, as you would expect, perfectly synchronised with 10Hz GPS data. The graphical overlay – also high definition – is produced in real time, embedded within the footage, and is entirely customisable by the user. One of the benefits of a 16:9 HD output is that multiple parameters can be displayed simultaneously without impinging on what the cameras are recording, so the graphically enhanced video not only has greater impact, it also imparts a great deal of information.
Greater processing power also means that 32 incoming CAN channels are especially useful for those carrying out validation of complex vehicle systems, particularly in the world of ADAS/autonomous development. Having this much information available with synchronised video is also highly advantageous in post processing, as it is possible to display a small number of channels within the footage itself but log many more for later software analysis.
