The RT LIVE v2 motorsport and industrial are two new versions of the Race Technology RT LIVE v2 product, with improvements to data upload and analogue inputs. The two versions are identical in operation other than the rear connectors on the unit, with the Motorsport unit using 2 x 12 way Deutsch connectors, and the Industrial unit using a 25 way d-type.

In common with the previous versions of the products, the new RT LIVE v2 variants collect vehicle data and upload to the Race Technology web server, where the data can be logged and downloaded or live streamed.

Information available via live telemetry includes:

  • Lap times
  • Speed and position on the track or road
  • Alarms e.g. low oil pressure
  • General variables e.g. fuel level, water temperature etc.
  • Send simple messages back to the car dashboard, e.g. "Oil Problem"

Live data telemetry can be viewed in two ways, either in an internet browser (PC, Android, iOS device) or on a PC with an internet connection using the Live Monitor software. Using an internet browser the update rate is 5Hz, whilst using the Live Monitor it is up to 100Hz.

For basic applications the unit can be used standalone and in this case the installation is very straightforward. Simply connect 12V power from the vehicle, along with the supplied mobile data network and GPS antennas and it is ready to stream live data or record data to its internal memory for periodic download over the internet. For more advanced applications the unit can be used as part of a system that includes almost any combination of Race Technology products (such as the DASH2 PRO and DL1) as well as external CAN sources and analogue sensors.

All information is continuously uploaded over a mobile data network connection to a server. When a mobile data network connection is not available the data is buffered in the RT LIVE v2 internal memory and uploaded to the server the next time a mobile data network connection is available. Once uploaded, the data is securely stored on a cloud server as standard format Race Technology data (RUN) files which are compatible with all Race Technology software, including the comprehensive data analysis package.

Data streaming is automatically started and stopped based on either vehicle movement, or whenever the unit has power, alternatively it can be controlled manually from the start/stop button on the RT LIVE v2, or a connected Race Technology DASH4PRO dash display unit.

Each RT LIVE v2 unit is registered on the Race Technology website before first use. Either a single unit can be registered to an account, or a batch of units can be registered together for ease of management of a race series.

It is the users responsibility to ensure the products have the correct approvals for the regions they will be operated in. For information on 4GLTE certification click here.
