2015 Corvette Stingray to get industry first Performance Data Recorder option

Chevrolet and Cosworth have co-developed an industry first Performance Data Recorder package for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray combining video, telemetry, and data acquisition information, all viewable on the car’s eight-inch dash mounted touchscreen.

The three PDR components start with a 720 pixel, high-definition camera mounted within the windshield header trim to capture driver point-of-view video footage of their track experience. There is also a microphone mounted inside the cabin for recording audio.

A self-contained telemetry recorder with a dedicated 5Hz GPS receiver is mounted in the passenger-side front wheel well which is hardwired into the Stingray’s Controller Area Network stream, giving you access to vehicle information such as engine speed, throttle position, transmission gear, steering angle, and braking force. They have even added an SD-card slot in the glove box for storing video and vehicle data.
