The Race Data revolution is here. Now you can live-stream AiM, MoTeC, Race Technology, and more to Podium
Live-stream your racing to Podium, the social network where you can do real-time analysis on engine, chassis, and driver performance. Share and compare your laps with crew, friends, race coaches, and fans around the world.
Set your data free! Using cellular-based telemetry, PodiumConnect brings together different data systems in a powerful way. Easily compare laps between AiM, MoTeC, Race Technology, and other GPS-enabled data systems, all in the cloud, and in real-time.
High performance and super responsive
With PodiumConnect’s on-board 4G cellular you’ll get up to 10Hz streaming and fast response while viewing your telemetry.
How much telemetry does that give you? Here are a few examples for a reasonable load of 32 channels at a mix of 1/5/10Hz:
Length of Race Approximate usage
4 hours 30MB
17 hours 130MB
24 hours 183MB
The built-in worldwide 4G module also works with any GSM carrier, including:
USA AT&T, T-Mobile, FreedomPop
UK Vodaphone, O2, Tesco, Three
EU Vodaphone, Lycamobile
Australia Telstra, VodaPhone
Brazil Claro, Vivo
Powerful, instant analysis – no need to transfer files
Now you have no files to transfer and no data cables to connect: your data streams in real-time to Podium where it can be reviewed by race coaches, monitored by your pit crew, or broadcast to fans around the world, right now! Uncover what will make a difference in your driving or car performance during your race or practice, while still on track.
Powerful time-gap analysis
Compare laps in real time and see where on track you’re falling behind or gaining time – race coaches will love the ability to tune the nut behind the wheel while the driver is on track – no need for off-line “data download” classrooms!
Compare your laps between friends and sessions
Regardless of the system your friends are using, you’ll be able to compare lap times, sensors, GPS position, driving line and more using the powerful tools available on Podium – across many laps or just one:
Follow and be followed by your favorite racers
Follow other racers, view their laps, and get notified when they’re on track. Then, compare their laps to yours. What are their racing secrets?
Claim the top lap time at your favorite race track. See who else is running at your favorite tracks. Compare the laps they’ve shared and see where you stack up!
Add an auxiliary dash
Use the powerful RaceCapture app to create a secondary dashboard to show additional sensor data, plus enable pit-to-car alerts*!
Download the RaceCapture app from Google Play, iTunes or the Amazon app store.
Customise the dashboard screen to show custom gauges and advanced visualizations, including a tire temperature heatmap!
Enable pit-to-car alerts* to get the attention of your driver. Great for endurance racing!
Stream up to 100 sensor channels
Two CAN 2.0 compliant busses let you connect your compatible AiM or MoTeC or other system, in addition to any sensor network you have on your race car.
If it’s CAN enabled, we can read it! Here are some examples:
High performance GPS from your existing data system
G-forces and gyro data from your existing data system
Calculated predictive lap times
Multi-zone tire temperature sensors
Engine sensors such as oil pressure, engine temperature, RPM, throttle position, and more
Aero / Strain gauges
Ride height sensors
Driver input such as steering angle and brake pressure
Bio-sensors such as heart rate and body temperature
Easy to use presets
It’s simple to map CAN channels from data systems such as AiM, MoTeC and others, or map high performance ECUs such as AEM, Hondata, Emtron, Haltech, PE3, Link G4, Megasquirt and more. Or, connect to OBDII and OEM CAN bus networks like the BMW E46 or Porsche – all at the touch of a button.
No CAN bus? If your system streams data over RS232, like the RaceTechnology DL1 and DL2, we can connect to that as well.
Compatible with AiM
PodiumConnect works with your GPS-enabled Smarty Cam compatible AiM systems, including:
MGX, MXS Dashboards
AiM Pista dashboards
…and more! Plug right into your data hub with the included cable and live-stream GPS, G-forces, lap times, engine sensors and more.
Compatible with MoTeC
PodiumConnect works with nearly every MoTeC dash, logger and ECU, including:
- ADL dash / logger displays
- M8XX/M1XX series ECUs
- C series and D-Series dashboards
Simply connect two wires, select a pre-set CAN bus configuration and you’re good to go – live-stream GPS, G-forces, lap times, engine sensors and more.
PodiumConnect works with the GPS-enabled Race Technology DL1 and DL2 loggers, and connects to the standard serial data port for access to all of the available channels.
Got a different system? Talk to us – it will likely work!
If it supports broadcasting GPS + sensor data over CAN or RS232, PodiumConnect can handle it. Just tell us what you have and we can help.
No data system?
If you don’t have a data system – good news, we have you covered: Check out the RaceCapture line of full-featured telemetry systems!
Configure and manage without connecting a cable: PodiumConnect is equipped with WiFi connectivity for wireless management and configuration.
GoPro Camera Control
PodiumConnect can control a WiFi-enabled GoPro camera, triggering it from one of your data channels – like Speed or RPM – automatically starting your camera when you’re ready to race.
An SD card slot is provided for local data recording – great for importing into external analysis and visualization tools like RaceRender and more.
Compact, lightweight and rugged
At only 85 x 85 x 36mm (3.35 x 3.35 x 1.41in) and 170g (6oz) it’s easy to install and conserves precious weight.
Comprehensive status indicators
Indicators for WiFi, Telemetry, CAN and Serial communications are provided on the front for quick status at a glance.
Just one cable to connect to your data system
It’s easy to set up. Just:
Connect one cable to your existing data system
