Announcement: Live Telemetry Improvements!

Postby RaceRender LLC » Tue Apr 01, 2014 8:11 pm

TrackAddict HD's Live Telemetry Streaming has Been Upgraded!

Background

Users of the Pro Edition of TrackAddict HD have the option of live streaming their telemetry to others over the Internet, which can be viewed at http://Live.RaceRender.com

This Online Streaming option can be enabled under the "More Options" screen, and would then be active when recording a session (ie when the app is on the "Record" screen).

It is also possible to use TrackAddict HD to see the approximate positions of friends who are on the track with you, by adding their ID's to the list of users you are following. See
the "Follow / Unfollow Others" button inside the app. When you are all streaming online and on the track together, their positions should be shown with yours on the live track map
display within the app, which appears after completing one full lap.


Summary of Recent Changes (as of April 17, 2014)

  • Online user list shows those streaming in Public Mode within the last two minutes. Private Mode users are not listed.
  • If streaming was in Public Mode, the data and displays remain visible after going offline (assuming the viewer had it open, or if he enters the Public or Private ID number)
  • If streaming was in Private Mode, the data and displays should disappear within a couple minutes of going offline (regardless, viewers still need the Private ID to view this mode)
  • User telemetry view has a nicer visual layout
  • Start position is depicted on the map with a green bullseye
  • Displays a list of the most recent lap times (up to 12 laps, starting with the most recent)
  • Indicates the top speed observed during the session
  • Option to stream your selected OBD data channels (when using a compatible OBD-II interface device; added in version 2.6.2)
  • User viewer has been tested on the current version of Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera (as of April 1, 2014)
  • It should now also work with Internet Explorer 10 and newer. If it doesn't work for you, please give another browser a try.

Problems Recently Resolved

  • Login data problems have been fixed, but affected users will need to simply reset their accounts. Please see this thread: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=213
  • Fixed incomplete track map for users who have their connection cut out (less common, but sometimes happens when going around a race track with a weak cellular data signal)
  • If a compatible OBD-II interface is connected and the data is available, the vehicle's Year/Make/Model may be displayed (as determined by the app; VIN is not transmitted to server)
  • Fixed occasional issue with Segment mode getting stuck on Lap 0 and not drawing the map
  • Added better checks and synchronization to help limit future problems

Update: In addition to a few other improvements, the TrackAddict HD 2.6.2 update (released April 17, 2014) includes the option to stream your selected OBD data channels (up to 12) with your live telemetry. This of course requires the use of a compatible OBD-II interface device, and the available data channels and performance will depend on that hardware and your specific vehicle, as this can vary from car to car.
