    Ferrari Telemetry

    Ferrari Telemetry: a virtual engineer in your car

    Get behind the wheel of a Ferrari and you’ll have the most advanced automotive technology in the world at your fingertips. The kind of technology that will guarantee you benchmark performances and unparalleled exhilarating driving pleasure. Over the years, Maranello has developed a whole slew of instruments and tools to help clients genuinely develop their skills, turning them from competent drivers to individuals capable of genuinely capable of making the very most of their cars’ potential safely and securely. In-car, there is, for instance, the famous Manettino which allows drivers adjust the car’s responses and personality to their own. Plus, of course, the Prancing Horse also provides services such as the Ferrari Corsi Pilota driving courses and the FXX and 599XX Client-Driver programmes. 

    Thanks to its unparalleled experience on the world’s racing circuits, Ferrari’s mission to help its clients improve their driving skills has now taken another leap forward with the launch of a new advanced telemetry system that is fully integrated with the car. Designed for use on the F12Berlinetta, the 458 Speciale and the LaFerrari, the system allows drivers record each driving session and benefit from a flow of extra information in real time (such as hot lap monitoring, including intermediate times) as well as a huge quantity of data to analyse back in the pits. The data is, in fact, processed by an authentic virtual engineer that is always at your fingertips. 

    Dubbed Ferrari Telemetry, the system monitors the car’s position using a series of high precision GPS antennae and displays the data gathered directly on the instrument binnacle. The system is similar to the one used by Scuderia Ferrari technicians working with Fernando Alonso and Kimi Räikkönen during test sessions and Formula 1 grands prix. Ferrari Telemetry analyses performance data, highlighting issues relating dips in performance, such as braking points or speed out of corners, thanks to the slew of signals coming from the car (accelerator and brake pedal angle, gear shifts, rpms, etc.).

    An even more in-depth performance analysis can also be carried out by transferring the data recording during a session to an iPad or computer via USB stick and then running them through the specially developed Ferrari Telemetry App which can compare different laps. Video footage recorded using a high resolution camera kit can also be combined with the analysis. The cameras simultaneously record the route the car follows and the driver in action, making it possible to evaluate both the car’s performances and the driver’s technique.

    I wonder how much they will charge for this option? 


    Re: Ferrari Telemetry

    On LaFerrari, it is a a no cost option and it comes with cameras for inside and outside views.

    Judging from the video on the website, it looks pretty cool, I wonder if the laptime is determined via GPS or with a beacon.

    In any case, it cannot be worse than the Sport Chrono feature of Porsche.

    The G-force, torque and AWD distribution display in the speedo cluster display is a nice gimmick but doesn't really help much. The data recording function is very basic and it isn't really useful either. Extracting the data requires an USB stick, I would actually love to seen an app for that. I would love to see something useful and nice, due to the many sensors embedded, it wouldn't be a problem. However it seems that Porsche isn't interested or has things planned for the future...when I'm dead (or too old to drive such a car Smiley).

    Porsche had already started a development project. In the near future there will be a very interesting Apps (community, tracks, roads, telemetry, ....). The solution will be much cheaper then the Ferrari solution. Sorry no more information from me SmileySmileySmileySmiley

    The app will be available for the 918 first as far as I heard and it will continue with other models but it takes too long and the data available will be very limited to my knowledge. Unless they up their game and finally offer something really good. Let's hope for the best. blush

    It is better (or can more) then you might think. The Apps are complicated not technically but thinking about all the laws in the different countries. As mentioned before Smiley

    For sure Porsche is behind Ferrari in this area and Porsche together with Audi is trying hard to close the gap and to overtake Ferrari. In the future this kind of developments will be under the responsibility of Audi. 

    Enough - have to pack my things for a short ski vacation!

    Long overdue. Your average road cyclist has tons more telemetry available, with interesting apps to analyze the whole lot. I imagine the impediment has been the legal implication, not only for the manufacturer but also the driver.

    A part of it, yes. Let's talk launch control: So complicated to activate (in my opinion). It would be very easy to make the whole LC process simpler. However, they cannot...for legal reasons. The lawyers always look at the competition and they all try to stay at the same "level", so if something happens, they can argue that the competition uses a similar system. Smiley

    Another problem is how much information you actually want to give the customer: Is it helpful if a customer can look at the rear diff temperature? Or at the current (real) power level? Wouldn't people start to argue why one temperature is lower or higher and why one engine has more or less power? In the age of the internet, I can understand how this can be a problem.
