Using a video camera in your race car seems like an easy thing to do…. grab your favorite low dollar HD camera, get a mount, and press record. If only it were so simple. For use in a race car, your first priority is to make everything automated!
- It must turn on by itself.
- It must start recording by itself.
- It must not over heat.
- It must not accidentally turn off.
- It must not run out of memory or battery.
- It must stop recording on its own.
- It must finish writing the video file properly.
- It must turn off by itself.
Motorsport environments are very demanding and most consumer grade video recorders are not designed for motorsports.
I am working with Robert Todd and BR Racing to install a Motec C-125 in my 1999 Spec Boxster. He states that he would be consulting your company for setting up the Motec system in my Boxster which has a K-line to access the car’s ECU. I already have a VBOX system with two cameras mounted in the Boxster. I am wondering if the VBOX video system can put the data from the MoTeC that comes off the K-line into the overlays in the video?
If so, would your staff be creating those overlays when they do the install of the Motec system?
