Chevrolet announced the first Performance Data Recorder for the 2015 Corvette Stingray at CES 2014 in Las Vegas. It features integrated video, audio and motorsport inspired telemetry recording capability. It lets users record high definition video with telemetry overlays.
The system includes a 720p, high definition camera mounted within the windshield header trim recording the driver's point of view and a dedicated microphone in the cabin for audio recording. It also uses a dedicated GPS receiver operating at 5 hertz or cycles per second and is five times faster than the in-dash navigation system.
The recorder is connected to the Stingray's Controller Area Network (CAN) which lets it access vehicle information, including engine speed, transmission gear, braking force, steering wheel angle and more.
Finally there's a dedicated SD card slot in the glove box for recording and transferring video and vehicle data. It comes with an 8GB card which can record up to 200 minutes and can be upgraded to 32GB which stores up to 800 minutes.
