Cellular Network-Based Communication with Real-Time Data Transmission in Motorsports

A key factor for success in motorsports is flawless communication between drivers and their team. Current offerings are a tradeoff between audio quality, subscription or license fees, and features. We aim to improve the cost effectiveness of communication in motorsport while at the same time optimizing everything cellular network-based communication offers. In addition to audio, we also stream and log vehicle data and interpret it in our smartphone application to make sure your engineers know to what level the car and driver are performing. Eric Wouters will present the introduction; Toon will present how the system works and Sander will explain the App.
