GPS8 Performance Mode

New 4.2 firmware will be available shortly and has a feature called "Performance Mode". System uses the internal controller to calculate several performance values and send those to CAN Bus. Idea is to enable the driver to improve the starts and test launch systems without having the need to stop the test or enter the pits.

System measures following parameters, times are reported in milliseconds:

  • 0 - 20m, 50m, 100m, 125m, 150m, 200m, 225m, 250m.
  • 0 - 30kmh, 60kmh, 100kmh, 150kmh.
  • runMillis timer 
  • runDistance in meters

System is completely automatic and doesn't require any actions from the driver. Nothing has to be set in the settings either. Just floor the accelerator from the stop and the test will terminate after the speed is maxSpeed during the run - 10kmh. 

Results are sent to display immediately and available until the next run starts. New run can be started immediately after the vehicle has been stopped.

Below is an example of a run how the data is logged:

Firmware will be available for all GPS8 owners for free and is optional for new customers after March 2020.
