WHAT IS RALLYSAFE?
RallySafe is an innovative vehicle to vehicle communication system that transmits hazard warnings via in-car units in competitive motor sports events. Originally designed with rally in mind, its potential in other areas was soon recognised and the system has since been adapted for use in other areas of motorsport.
The unit itself is a small electronic module fitted to a vehicle for use by the navigator and driver. It incorporates a full colour display, key pad, accelerometers, a radio transceiver, GPS, GSM and satellite communications capabilities. It is a one size fits all unit with only a fitting kit consisting of an antenna and 12v power source needed for operation.
All of this latest technology is used to automatically transmit warnings and vehicle status data from one car to another and to Race Control as quickly and efficiently as possible. Being fully automated there is little input required from crews, leaving them to focus on the important task at hand. Instant and automatic detection of hazards reduces reaction and lead times to provide fast response to those in need without the usual confusion surrounding an incident.
The RallySafe is much more than described, with full timing & location service capabilities, the system is capable of more than meets the eye.
