What are the benefits of this innovation?
Haven't you ever heard the spectators of a car rally event complaining about the lack of information on the races? Likewise alongside the track of a circuit of several kilometers.
In order to overcome this frustration, GEORACING has developed a technological solution that allows live tracking of cars on internet or on mobile to improve the fan experience.
Thanks to a GPS tracking mobile app installed in the smartphone of the drivers, and which transmits every second the GPS position of the cars, it's possible for fans to follow live the race on an interactive map with many information such as speed, gaps, timings, rankings...
Everything is automated and easy to deploy for the organization. No dedicated equipment needs to be set in the cars. Moreover, the tool allows safety teams to identify possible crashes or breakdowns and to react quickly.
