Abstract:Sim(ulator) racing are games that replicate a real racing environment, like Formula 1. The performance of players in such games is increased by constantly analyzing telemetry data, which measure certain key parameters of the cars and driver input through sensors. However, the average sim racer does not have the technical knowledge to understand this data and may have difficulties in improving their performance. The solution that this paper presents is a dashboard aimed at increasing the sim racers performance by the use of key metrics. Using theoretical framework, data analysis and best practices, core functional and nonfunctional requirements were derived and applied to the development of the dashboard. The final prototype was validated through a survey by novice to moderately experienced sim racers. The dashboard was found that it does provide better insight into their performance and can help in increasing it. Based on this research, recommendations are given to further improve the dashboard, such as personalized feedback.
