2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray gets an optional Performance Data Recorder [videos]

At the Consumer Electronics Show this past weekend, Chevrolet announced an all-new, industry-first Performance Data Recorder for the new seventh-generation Corvette Stingray.

The fully integrated system features integrated video, audio, and motorsport-inspired telemetry recording capability, enabling users to record high-definition video, with telemetry overlays, of their drive experiences on and off the track.

The Performance Data Recorder (PDR) system includes three major components:
-The 720p, high-definition camera, mounted within the windshield header trim records the driver’s point-of-view through the windshield with audio being is recorded via a dedicated microphone in the cabin.
-Second component is a self-contained telemetry recorder using a dedicated GPS receiver that operates at 5 Hz, five times faster than the in-dash navigation system, for more precise positioning and corner traces.
-The third feature is a dedicated SD-card slot in the glove box. 8GB card can record approximately 200 minutes, while a 32GB card stores up to about 800 minutes – more than 13 hours of driving time.

You can later review HD videos in-car or download for sharing with others on social media.

To go into details and analyze your driving the data can be uploaded to Cosworth Toolbox telemetry software, similar to that used by Corvette Racing, to improve driver’s techniques and lap times.

The optional performance data recorder will be available with the start of regular 2015 model year Corvette production, later in the third quarter of 2014. Pricing details will be announced closer to launch.
