RaceCloud Co-Driver Mode

Share Button

The world-first Co-Driver for Go-Karting is here! And it’s here to help, to help learning new tracks, to help improve driver’s behavior, racing line and the points of interaction that define the ideal line through the corners. In the previous blog post (How to Improve Lap Times with RaceCloud Academy) we have discussed the proper approach in creating a Co-Driver setup on the iPad and it is now time do see how the magic happens from the driver’s perspective.

IMG_20151009_155443
After the created setup is loaded on the device through the Session Mode screen for every driver it refers to, you will be guided with illuminating signals by the LEDs for every speed changing action (braking, accelerating or keeping constant speed) and by the DISPLAY itself for the cornering interactions.

So now, all you have to do is to go out and drive, following just the simple 3-2-1 visual instructions:

3-2-1 (Brake)
Red
3-2-1 (Turn)
Turn
3-2-1 (Keep your balance)
Yellow
3-2-1 (Accelerate)Green
Of course, you must be careful when setting up those points through the RaceCloud iPad Application and never rely solely on the Co-Driver’s guidance. Create the points only for reference and check them during the moderate driving pace in the first lap or two, before getting into racing at 100%. You are the driver, you should feel the driving and benefit from the Co-Driver’s guidance with just keeping the display in your peripheral sight in order to quickly learn unknown tracks, easily improve your driving and effectively adjust your racing line. We already mentioned that every point of interaction is affecting your racing line, speed and driven path and thus, changing any of them results in a change in your results. For example moving your braking point a little bit further means that you’ll keep more speed on the previous section, but you’ll need a later turn-in, the racing line will alter in one with a later apex and this will lead to potential earlier acceleration, but this may not be suitable for the next section of the track, so you need to carefully examine the data, find the fastest way through the section of corners. So just create a setup of points and carefully experiment until you reach the desired results.

As soon as you select the new session mode, the Co-Driver’s guidance will be with higher priority than your standard  LED indications for  RPM Shift Light or Lap/Split Difference. Of course, despite being used for the Co-Driver mode, the temperature alarm will always “watch your back”, overriding its instructions, so the LEDs will notify you for overheating of the engine, if its temperature get too high, over the predefined value in settings.

After the session made under your virtual Co-Driver’s guidance you will be able to again fully analyze your performance, including the Academy points locations, so you can adjust your setup even further and grow even higher in your driving and results!

Improving driver’s behavior within the racing line

Share Button

Academy_HeaderImproving driver’s capabilities and achieving better results and performance have always been the core of motorsports and ever since its creation people are trying to find the easiest, the fastest and the most effective way to do this. There have been a lot of different approaches through the years in pursuit of speed, but the driver’s behavior within the racing line have always been the essential part. And what defines the racing line itself are the crucial points of driver interaction. Finding the best braking, turn-in and acceleration points is a desired goal activating people’s creativity in making the drivers follow them. The history remembers a lot of interesting and inspired ideas – from marking those spots on the tarmac, through standing next to the track and showing them to the driver to creating a visual mind markers inside the driver’s head. And now, since we’re into the 21st century it is time for RaceCloud to once again create something innovative and bring driver coaching to a completely new level!

What’s the meaning of all the data and information if the driver can’t realize what to change and when to do it? This is why with RaceCloud Academy you will be able to effortlessly find the weakest spots in driver’s behavior within the racing line and correct them by showing him the right moment for all the driver interactions – braking, turn-in, transition and acceleration! Co-Driver in your go-kart?! Why not! Want to push harder, brake later, guide your kart through the ideal line and accelerate as early as possible?! Yes, we all want that, so in order to achieve it just analyze your data, find the room for improvement and create your crucial driving points over the racing line and they will be displayed on the DISPLAY’s screen and LEDs. As simple as that! Forget about the old school, we are into the future, let’s take advantage of it!

14 - Co-DriverYou’ve found an option to improve braking for turn 1, or think that you should accelerate earlier out of turn 7? Just find the right spot and create your guiding points through your iPad Application, save them in your Academy Co-Driver setup for the Go-Kart BUNDLE and go! Your RaceCloud system will guide you through the track preparing you and showing you exactly what and where you should do in order to go faster and achieve better lap times. 3…2…1… BRAKE, 3…2…1… TURN, 3…2…1… ACCELERATE! Just like that!

And this is just the beginning – since RaceCloud’s Academy is automatically detecting the braking and turning points of your friend or team mate, you will be able to review them and create yours based on this, making it a piece of cake to learn a new track or just improve your driving!

Just take your seat with our test driver and take a look at all that in action: https://youtu.be/hN1n0uuO4tI?t=1m35s
