  • DL1 + GoPro = Win!

    Posted on September 10th, 2010 tcorzett No comments

    In preparation for my future Auto-X and Track Day activities, I picked-up a Race Technology DL1 Data Logger.

    The DL1 collects data using GPS, two accelerometers, and a connection to the vehicle’s OBDII port. Everything is compiled into the analysis software in various graphic views. Here is an screenshot showing the GPS path (with satellite images), a graphical representation of the speed and lateral G-force over time.

    Things get really powerful when you start comparing multiple laps together… in this case speed over distance for four trips over this route.

    Looking at the speeds, G-forces, steering angles, etc. from run to run should be very valuable at the track.

    One of the really fun things about the DL1 is the ability to generate graphic overlays that can be integrated with the video footage I record using the GoPro HD cameras!
