Let me explain my problem. The F1 cars have a transponder and a GPS, supplied by AMB as per technical regulations. These are part of an electrical ciruit controlled by the FIA. In this circuit you will find the microphones, the cameras etc. It is read our/controlled via the little antenna on the nose. That system supplies for instance the speed information on the onboards.ENGINE TUNER wrote: ↑Wed May 16, 2018 1:34 pmI'm sorry but I must disagree, the system is totally time based and does not care about track position(other than the mini sectors and marshaling posts). Wheel rotation is of no consequence because they are always spinning the wheels, or weaving for tire temp. The ecu is given a "target time" for vsc and that is what the drivers must drive to. VET is mistaken or lying, which wouldn't be the first time. Charlie has proven himself incompetent on many occasions. The cars do not count wheel rotations to determine position on track. Please read the relevant section of the regulations again posted above again.
Then you have the electrical architecture of the car itself, this carries all the sensors, ECU, the steering wheel controls, screen etc.
There is a good reason to isolate these two systems because the last thing you want is a FIA component causing a car error. Secondly you don’t want a GPS feed into the ECU because it makes it much to tempting to link it to PU management.
As far as I know there are only two connections between these systems. The audio is spliced so Charly can speak to the drivers, and there is a link to the three warning lights on the steering wheel.
So the question is, if they use the transponders/GPS where does the FIA calculate the delta time and how do they feed it to the car/steering wheel screen?
