Flowing Lap Engineering

We are creating a professional cloud-based data analytics platform to become a core part of your sim racing / eSports racing technical team.

In the next few weeks, we will launch the base platform which we'll use to build upon. This will support rFactor 2 an outstanding racing simulation software. See below for the features available from the get go. Stay tuned!

Platform

Fidgrove provides an app - Fidgrove DataLogger -, which should be installed in the sim computer to gather the logged data (running in background mode), which is then accessible through Fidgrove Engineering Station, a web interface with a clean design and built for efficient visualization and analysis of racing data.

Here is a list of features available at launch:

  • Secure all data logged in Fidgrove's private servers, with no data shared with anyone without your explicit consent (full telemetry logged from launch day, to be used in detailed analyses once additional core features are implemented)
  • Leverage on rich metadata for quick and easy data searches
  • Track setups used in each session automatically, linking the setup with its respective historical performance
  • Track personal best laps for each specific car-track combo (e.g., in dry / wet conditions, 1 lap / 10 laps pace), and comparing different car performances for each track
  • View overall information on each session, as well as details such as lap-by-lap information for each stint (e.g., lap time, tire degradation, fuel consumption), or end-of-stint car information (e.g., temperatures, pressures)
  • Analyze how much energy you're generating per lap in a Formula E car, alongside info on average eMotor Torque map mode and average Regen map mode used

Fidgrove is currently supporting rFactor 2 simulation software, and all content developed by Studio 397 made available on Steam. Access to all features mentioned above is free. We're working to bring you important core features soon.

Managing Setups

This time we look into setups and the challenges of managing them optimally with the power of metadata.

Data Context

At Fidgrove, we decided to have our platform support rFactor2 for several reasons, including the incredible physics simulation and FFB system, as well as the openness to 3rd party development.

The Login Process

We created a login process without the hassle of a password

Tracking Lap Times

In the last few days, we've spent some time implementing a way to navigate through historical time performances, and we're quite happy with what we have achieved. Let us share what we've done.
