Chevrolet has outdone itself with this feature. The 2015 Corvette Stingray will come with an available dash cam called the Performance Data Recorder. Recently released for the 2015 Corvette Stingray, the newly introduced dashboard cam allows drivers to experience the real life feeling of an instant replay just after the adrenaline rush of a track run has begun to subside. At the heart of this system is a windshield header-mounted 720-pixel camera that can record more than 13 hours of footage when a 32 GB SD memory card is placed in the Corvette Stingray’s glove box-mounted SD card slot. With the help of Corvette Racing partner, Cosworth, drivers can now use the Performance Data Recorder as a way to refine their driving techniques.
With a telemetry recorder that is five times as fast as the one in the Corvette Stingray’s navigation system, a GPS receiver has the ability to assess vehicle information such as steering angles, brake force, and engine speed, and then provide the driver with the chance to see recordings of their track-day fun and examine what driving improvements could have been made or where brakes might have been applied too early. Once home, you can analyze your driving technique using included software that is similar to the analysis software used by the Corvette Racing team.
Chevrolet has made videos from the Performance Data Recorder uploadable to computers, so drivers can boast of the power, precision, and prowess of their Corvette Stingray to any computer user and verify it with real-life video.
