Formula 1 Telemetry (F1 2020)
Published on Sat Nov 28 2020
I am starting a new project!
Yes – I know – this must be shocking!
I found out that the F1 games can spit out telemetry. This is awesome news – because telemetry means A LOT in Formula 1 – as explained in this video.
The game (F1 2020) let’s the player setup the broadcast of telemetry. The telemetry is sent as UDP packages on the network to a specific IP address + port pair. It is also possible to select the frequenzy of the packages.
This can be done in two ways – either by storing data and analyzing it at a later state OR by providing real time data for real time analysis.
With this project I really want to achieve both of these goals.
The first step is to get data out of the game – that is where this project starts.
