General Motors has announced a new dashboard system that layers performance data on top of dash-cam footage. The Performance Data Recorder will be available with the 2015 Corvette Stingray. Stingray drivers will be able to record and share their drive with the Performance Data Recorder.
?The Performance Data Recorder combines the ability to record and share drive videos with the power of a professional-level motorsports telemetry system,? stated Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter. ?Drivers can easily record and share their experiences driving down the Tail of the Dragon or lapping Road Atlanta. In addition, with the included telemetry software, users can analyze their laps in incredible detail and find opportunities to improve their driving and lap times.?
The video can be queued on a dashboard mounted monitored or it can be downloaded to a driver’s computer. The display has a speedometer, throttle display, and gear indicator.
Chevrolet is going to showcase the 2015 Corvette Stingray at the Detroit Auto Show this month.
