2015 Corvette Performance Data Recorder Details:

  • Debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV
  • Record HD video and performance data from track days
  • Data recorded on SD cards
  • Simple video and GPS interface

If gearheads have SEMA and gamers have E3, the undisputed tech show of the year would have to be the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). There's never any shortage on state-of-the-art technology at the annual show held in the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 7th-10th. We're finding more and more cars benefitting from futuristic technology as it progresses every year. Chevrolet is taking advantage of one new technology in particular and incorporating it into its newest Corvette Stingray.

The car will feature a fully integrated Performance Data Recorder or PDR, a breakthrough in the car industry. This will allow users to record high-definition video, with telemetry overlays during time on the track. Simply insert an SD card in the SD slot located inside the glove compartment to get started. After lapping the track users can then download and share the HD video by uploading it into their laptop.

The interface shows footage on the right of the screen and on the left a GPS traces your every move on the track. Further left of the screen is clickable tabs for every corner on the track synchronized with GPS and video. So for example, if you're watching the last straight in the video, you can easily click on corner four or corner eight to review the data and footage on the fly.

Stay tuned as we discover more cool things we find at CES!
