Garmin Catalyst is an AI racing coach that that literally shows you how to be faster – Roadshow

Garmin's new performance analyzer coaches drivers to faster lap times by generating a seamless video based on captured race

Curated via Twitter from CNET News’s twitter account….

Armed with this data, it’s time for Catalyst’s coolest party trick: Using AI technology, the device will analyze every segment of every lap and then build a theoretical perfect lap based on your performance.

However, rather than delivering turn-by-turn navigation instructions, the new Garmin Catalyst is a racing performance optimizer that promises to not just analyze your lap times, but also to help make you a faster driver with AI-driven coaching.

And as you improve (or your car improves with modifications), you’ll see the perfect lap change over time, either right there on the Catalyst’s screen or on a mobile device or web browser after a Wi-Fi sync with Garmin Connect.

The Catalyst combines a lap timer, video recorder, rich data logging and AI smarts to help drivers improve their lap and segment times. 744"}’ section="annotation">Garmin is once again asking for a place on your car’s dashboard.

Catalyst’s coolest feature is its ability to generate a perfect lap based on your captured data and video.

"The True Optimal Lap feature on Catalyst is truly a game changer," Adam Spence, product manager and Garmin Pit Crew team lead, told me.

Plug everything in and head to the track and the Catalyst will use its built-in accelerometers, image processing, and 10-Hz multi-GNSS positioning to capture speed, lap and segment timing, braking and acceleration data and more, all automatically.

The Garmin Catalyst driving performance optimizer is on sale now, and costsĀ $999. 99 on Garmin. com and other motorsports and online retailers.

From its heavy-duty suction cup windshield mount, the Catalyst, which officially debuts Thursday, looks a lot like a modern version of Garmin’s legendary Nuvi navigator.
