BioTelemetry is designed to connect Wireless Biometric sensors to existing Data Acquisition and Telemetry systems. The two most important Biometric Sensors to be used in Motorsport are Heart Rate and Driver Temperature. Both of these sensors can give valuable insight into driver performance as well as health and safety.
Motorsport is a harsh environment which presents many issues for Biometric devices like heart rate monitors and body temperature sensors. We have tested many different devices and only supply those that we have had the best and most reliable results with.
We currently supply two types of heart rate monitoring devices: Arm Band and Chest Strap
The Arm Band is a new system that is comfortably worn on the forearm and uses very reliable and accurate optical sensors to measure heart rate. This has become the preferred system for most drivers, because it is easy to strap on once the driver is suited up.
Most athletes may be more accustomed to wearing the Chest Strap. The strap is worn around the chest and measures the heart’s electrical pulses. The Chest Strap also provides very accurate and reliable data. However, it is not as easy to strap on once the driver is suited up.
We are finalizing one additional high-end device that measures the body’s core temperature and heart rate through the ear. We have made some enhancements so that it may now incorporate a drivers audio device making it a viable solution.
Please contact us for further information on this new device.
Each system has advantages and disadvantages which are summarized in the following table:
