Fidgrove aims to improve sim racing performance through data. To that end, it uses the latest technology to deliver a cloud-based user-friendly data platform.
Fidgrove has 3 main components:
Fidgrove currently supports rFactor 2. Other data sources to be supported in the future.
Fidgrove has a DataLogger Windows app that has to be installed in the sim PC. This application manages to get the data from the sim, and streams it to our private servers.
No, it is not. Fidgrove minimizes all local computing precisely so there’s no impact on the sim’s PC (e.g., no file writing/reading to store telemetry). It essentially packages and steers information to compressed data streams.
Yes, Fidgrove Trackside Station shows cockpit data info, performance metrics (times, speeds), leaderboards and race analysis info, and real-time telemetry. It’s accessible on any browser, by you and your teammates.
List of features is big, but here are examples:
Please see features section for further details on specific features.
We believe the path should be to have real-time computing on all data available, delivering insights on how to improve performance immediately. That’s not the easy path, but it should be the right path to the solution that drivers and teams need.
As such, we have implemented the latest data stack technology that enables real-time computing with very low latency, making Fidgrove’s Trackside Station a great platform for future features. Furthermore, we are also creating our own path through research in the field. We have partnered with a University for joint R&D projects related to automated insights from telemetry and autonomous racing cars. For example, we can now identify the driver (and its driving style) based solely on telemetry. This will have several benefits for automated suggestions on how to improve performance, regarding both setup adjustments and driving improvements.
You can use most of Fidgrove’s features for free, including no cap on logging and analyzing data. Please see information on premium membership to see additional features that are paid.
