Abstract:Current dashboards for simulation racing games either show too much data that is incomprehensible to the average sim racer, or they fail to provide the user with concrete feedback. In this research, a dashboard is created that provides the user with personalized and concrete feedback based on their driving style. We do this by calculating the perfect braking, turn-in and acceleration points for every corner on a racetrack and compare these with the points where the user actually pressed the brakes, turned the steering wheel or pressed the throttle. This information is translated into concrete feedback and, using multiple visualization methods, we provide the user with a clear overview of where and how to adapt their driving style. Multiple qualitative interviews were conducted to validate the dashboard, revealing its accessibility, user-friendliness, and ability to provide convenient and practical feedback. The dashboard effectively informs drivers of the specific areas and methods to adapt their driving style in order to enhance performance.
