This 800HP LOMA Corvette made me temporarily deaf when I stood behind it at
Hunt Valley horsepower. I've heard a lot
of loud revs in my day, but none of them ever damaged my hearing as bad as
Bosch and Pratt & Miller - Forward Focus Collision Avoidance
A Pratt & Miller Engineering and Bosch Motorsports partnership is taking
steps toward making the world of motorsports safer through an award-winning
radar system. The Collision Avoidance System, which tracks cars and
distances, works as an "extra set of eyes," as Corvette racer Richard
Westbrook described. Track images are captured and overlaid with radar data
on the rear view display. This allows for at-a-glance driver recognition,
even at night and in the rain.
This integration of multiple hardware and software components started
gaining a great deal of attention last March, with its debut at the 12
Hours of Sebring. Within a year's time, the system has received two awards
in the motorsports community, is now in its production ready version and is
about to be shipped across the world to teams in need.
The new version totes some serious improvements: 50% thinner, 30% lighter
and streamlined internal hardware components for improved reliability and
manufacturability. This has been the result of intense collaboration with
Bosch Motorsports and their production expertise over the last two months.
One of the advantages of this system is that the driver doesn't need to
take their eyes off the road; they can utilize it with just their
peripheral vision due to how the interface is designed. "This has kind of
been the goal all along," says Chris Hammond, the Lead Radar System
Engineer at Pratt & Miller. "It's funny that we are developing this product
and putting so much time into how it looks and functions, to have the end
goal of making it so the driver never has to look directly at it."
While the Corvette C7.R is one of the fastest GT cars, they aren't the
fastest overall on the track. With two other faster classes that run at the same time,
being able to see those cars as they are approaching creates a safer
environment for overtaking and provides teams and fans with what they
want— more green-flag racing.
