Fidelio is the new software we developed to analyse telemetry data, based on Sanwa radio equipment. Thanks to the new features of Sanwa transmitters we're now able to plot data logged through the Telemetry System of Exzes-Z and M12.
These radios are able to log data such as time, steering %, throttle %, battery voltage, RPM, and 2 temperatures. Exzes-Z and M12 save all these data every 0.05 sec, and export a CSV file, which you download, via USB, in your PC through the Sanwa PC-Link Manager software.
All the data collected are then stored in your computer, and ready to be analysed, at home or even on track! Just plug your transmitter to the PC and download!
Fidelio software analyses and plots Steering %, Throttle %, and, using Sanwa 461 receiver, also Battery Voltage, 2 temperatures and RPM.
To do the job, we decided not to put anything on the car but 3 sensors: 2 for temperature and 1 for RPM. They are provided by Sanwa for few bucks. This is the most affordable set-up; maximum simplicity and lightness. No different hardware is required.
This is a plot of data collected at my last race, 1/8 on-road nitro, in Gubbio, Italy. It's a screenshot from a longer log, from a 5 min qualifying.
Fidelio makes also some easy-to-understand analisys: % of time WOT ( Wide Open Throttle ) and also RMS of Steering are showed, to let you understand how hard you're using your engine, and the average of steering you're using to lap the track. This is very useful data that you can consult and store, to build your own database of the performace of your car and your driving style. This is achievable even with the "stock" 471 receiver, but I strongly suggest to install the 461 Rx with optional sensors.
Now the behaviour of your engine is fully understandable; RPM, the gearbox shifting gear, the fall of engine speed when entering a corner WOT, the clutch slipping, the engine temperature fluctuating through the lap... it's a new world of possibilities to understand how things work, an eye inside your car during the race.
