Powered by GPS
At the heart of SoloStorm is a Global Positioning System based data logger. GPS offers an excellent price point for entry into race car data logging and analytics. There are many GPS receivers available to choose from, as well as some best practices for their use. Please read our GPS for Motorsports page to familiarize yourself.
Powerful Video Processing Engine
SoloStorm allows you to combine your data and videos on your Android device. You can generate overlaid video showing a number of data channels, as well as picture-in-picture video to show an alternate view or to compare to another run or driver.
While these features are available on all supported devices, the following features are available only on devices running Android 4.3 and higher:
- Hardware accelerated video encoding and decoding – process full 1080p video over 10x faster than using software alone.
- Trimming of overlaid video to remove time spent waiting before the logger is started.
Here is an example of a video overlay created with SoloStorm:
SoloStorm allows you to use a combination of video sources, including the front or back facing internal camera, a Wi-Fi camera, as well as 2 additional auxiliary cameras that you manually control.
What Do I Need?
You will need to supply your own Android phone or tablet. Read the Hardware Requirements.
At a minimum, you will need to purchase the SoloStorm software and a Bluetooth GPS receiver. These can be purchased as the SoloStorm GPS Package and also includes a suction cup mount for the GPS receiver.
If your vehicle is legacy OBD II compliant (1998 to 2007), then you want to add a Bluetooth OBD II reader. This is included in the SoloStorm Connectivity Package, which builds upon the GPS Package. This will allow you to log throttle position and RPM which are key for driver coaching as well as vehicle tuning.
If your vehicle is CAN OBD II compliant (2008 and newer), then consider the SoloStorm RaceCapture/Track Package. This will allow you to log OBD and other CAN bus channels at higher sample rates. On some vehicles (FRS/BRZ/GT86, for example) you can also log brake pressure and steering angle.
If you want to log values such as throttle and RPM but you don’t have an OBD II compliant vehicle, or have a standalone ECU with CAN bus support, then consider the SoloStorm Race Capture/Pro Package. This package includes a dedicated data logger with analog sensor inputs, CAN bus connectivity, internal accelerometer and gyros, and much more. You can also run brake pressure, steering, or custom sensors with this logger.
