All About Traqmate



What is Traqmate?

The Traqmate is a vehicle data acquisition device that uses a high-speed GPS receiver and high resolution accelerometers to track and record the speed of a vehicle, its absolute location, and forces acting on the vehicle.

The Track Systems Traqview analysis program uses advanced mathematical algorithms to translate this data into visual form where it is easy to spot differences between drivers, vehicles, and sessions.

TraqStudio program adds the ability to integrate HD video into the equation for an extremely powerful analysis tool. You can also create beautiful full screen 1080p videos with gauges and graphics.

The Traqmate will control select HD cameras and even two at once. You can also add multiple inputs to monitor external sensors like oil, water, rpm and temperatures.
