IndyCar Collection introduces new AIM video system

Each NTT IndyCar Collection staff will likely be required to make use of a brand new onboard video system equipped by AIM in 2019. The roll hoop-mounted cameras will present groups with full-time onboard video that can be utilized for driver and efficiency evaluation and, when wanted, IndyCar’s engineering employees with footage to dissect any crashes or element failures that happen all through the season.

Previous to the AIM system, groups have been allowed to put varied cameras –GoPros or comparable — atop the roll hoop throughout follow classes, and as followers have famous, the gadgets usually obscured in-car footage from the overhead digicam managed by IndyCar’s broadcast companions.
