Innovation in Race Track Security

Our novel patented solution SafeTrack causes safer race tracks, less crashes and fewer injuries. SafeTrack is a fully automatic system with a hardware complexity similar to laptiming systems. It features an automatic crash detection and sends the yellow flag. In the high end-version, the race control can send the red, white and black flag directly to the driver. SafeTrack is designed for the mass-market race sport as well as for the moto GP.

The SafeTrack-units for the race vehicles consist of 6 building parts:

SafeTrack includes a velocity monitoring via GPS and acceleration sensors.
The integrated 868 MHz transceiver provides a reliable air link

    • At high speed (> 300 km/h)
    • With high range (> 300 m)
    • At high temperatures (80°C)
    • With robust on-board antennas

The SafeTrack functionality of the mass-market version is quite simple: the data of security area (paddock and box) is stored

    • Car sends a signal, when it is out of the security area and the velocity is low
    • The section around the car is the yellow area
    • All drivers in this section see the yellow flag on their SafeTrack-display
