The application of racing-derived digital technologies coincided with the 2020 debut of the Huracán STO, the first Lamborghini super sports car equipped with a telemetry system that can be used via the Unica app.
CEO Stephan Winkelmann said the goal is to create “not just thrills but truly immersive driving experiences.”
Telemetry X does not disappoint, with three different software systems being developed in collaboration with Accenture — the Real Time Remote Garage (remote coaching), the Biometric Data System, and the Digital Co-Pilot.
The Remote Garage is a web application that, thanks to 5G technology, enables drivers to always have real-time video recordings of their on-track performance and telemetry available.
Images and data can be monitored live by a coach, who can be anywhere in the world, to give the customer-driver feedback and suggestions not only after but also during the driving session.
Physical endurance and performance monitoring
The world’s fastest super sports cars are a beast to handle and being able to monitor points of stress and elevated heart rates will be invaluable insight.
The Biometric Data System captures the driver’s biometric data, including heart rate and stress level, to allow more in-depth performance monitoring and provide useful references to refine their training.
The biometric data is gathered through a wearable device, still in its prototype stage and that is being developed inhouse.
Both systems work in synergy with the Digital Co-Pilot, the proactive voice assistant that compares both biometric and vehicle data to give feedback to the pilot while driving on the track.
For example, the Digital Co-Pilot analyzes lap times and provides useful pointers for improving racing lines and braking points, as well as information on the performance of the car on the track.
Lamborghini will be delivering its first hybrid sports car to customers this year, followed by their all-electric vehicle in 2028.
