2015 Corvette Performance Data Recorder Option Lands Later in 2014

Chevrolet has announced one of the coolest options ever for the 2015 Corvette Stingray. The new options is called the Performance Data Recorder and the PDR will be available later this year when normal production for the 2015 Stingray kicks off. The PDR adds a 720p resolution camera to the windshield header of the car.

The system also has a mic inside for recording audio and a telemetry module. The telemetry module uses a highly sensitive GPS receiver and is hardwired into the vehicle systems. That allows the video to be overlaid with performance data from the car like speed, lap time, and a map of the racetrack the car is navigating among other details.

The system was developed in cooperation with Cosworth, the company that provides telemetry systems for Corvette Racing. Pricing for the system is unknown. The video and data is stored to a SD card located in a slot inside the glove box. The video can be watched when the car is sitting still on the in-dash touchscreen.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
