What is Popometer.io?
Popometer.io is a new telemetry and setup platform for Assetto Corsa Competizione (PC). Its aim is to help drivers improve by showing them exactly what they are doing differently than faster drivers. We will provide tutorials on how to read and interpret the data, so you understand how to spot the problem.
How does it work?
We provide a small recording tool that will run in the background. It will collect basic information while driving like speed and driver inputs. Just run the tool and forget about it. All laps driven with the tool running will appear in your profile and are ready to be reviewed after a small processing phase.
Creators: Comparing to Pro Drivers
We are working with many known professional drivers on ACC, who will create “Data Packs”.
A “Data Pack” always includes at least 1 Setup and a reference lap with that setup. Once you purchase a “Data Pack” you will be able to compare your laps against those of the professionals. Similar to other software like Motec you will see:
Unlike other software you will be able to see exactly where the pros are placing the car on track, where they are starting to steer, brake and accelerate.
We are combining the best of other similar services out there:
Creators are free to create whatever data they want or how many setups will be included in a package.
For example they can create packages with fast and unstable setups for the competitive drivers, yet they can also provide setups catered towards drivability and endurance, or simply for less experienced drivers - ideally there is a setup available for everyone. The platform shares the bigger part of the revenue with the creators.
As opposed to motec, Popometer.io does not need any understanding of the software and only takes seconds to set up, while reducing information to those relevant for driving. Because we do not know what car/track combinations are most desired, you can request certain Data Packs and our creators will see which are asked for the most.
Features in the future
While the platform is rolled out to the public with the most basic function, we already have a roadmap ahead, including but not limited to:
- Intra-team comparison
- More pricing options
- More payment options
- Quick zoom into specific track sections
- TC/ABS readings
- Automated hints based on your driving patterns
- Notifications about requested Data Packs becoming available
- Coaching bookings
- Adding support for more games
- More languages
- General improvements to usability and visualization
Become a creator and earn
Right now we are already working with several experts on specific cars like the AMG, BMW, Porsche or Bentley. However, to cover all cars, if you are an expert on a certain vehicle (setup and driving wise), let us know and we’ll see if you can become a creator.
If you are very good with setups, but your driving isn’t the best of the best, feel free to reach out anyway and we’ll have a pro driver pick up your setup to create a Data Pack.
Like with any software we expect to experience issues and come across various bugs. Please let us know on Discord under the Popometer section in #bug-n-issue-reports if you come across anything that needs addressing.
