    On Board Driving Camera with Data Overlay

    I have always wondered how they did the fancy videos with the track overlays, speed, etc on consumer level car videos. I guess I just assumed it was some car price level of custom technology, but I stumbled across this today.

    "With traditional on-board cameras you get nice videos. With SmartyCam you get much more: because SmartyCam records your technical data together with videos. So you can analyze your sessions and ...improve your performance!

    SmartyCam combines a solid state digital video recorder with high speed GPS and real-time data overlays.
    Configurable instrument transparencies, real-time track position and GPS lap timing result in the most stunning video ever seen from an on-board camera. An ideal tool for all motorsports enthusiasts."

    This is the only place I've seen it.

    $999 but I'm not sure what all you get with it. I'll give Eric a shout if anyone is actually interested and find out.

    Yes in the right place and this was an awesome post, nice work.

    I have wondered about this as well, I believe the Video Vbox can do the same thing.

    After watching the video with the bikers going at it on the track the cars almost seem like they are in slow motion. The Bikes are nuts all grouped together so closely like that going into turns.
