inthinc has a long history of recording incident data for the motorsports industry, resulting in safety advancements and technology developments that have had a dramatic impact on the sport. Since 2001, inthinc Incident Data Recorders have been mounted on the steel frame of every NASCAR vehicle near the driver's left hip, where it records the forces on the driver when a crash occurs. Following an incident, or at the conclusion of the race, the recorded data is immediately accessed and analyzed. Data is compiled and stored, giving NASCAR unambiguous information to design safer cars and more effective safety devices, such as the 'SAFER Barrier' and 'NASCAR Car of Tomorrow.' NASCAR has used inthinc location-based technology a part of a lap counting system to provide highly accurate car positioning during the course of a race.
inthinc also has its motorsports solutions deployed with other organizations including GrandAm, World Rally Championship (WRC); F1 Powerboats; super V8s in Australia; Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) GT1, GT2, and GT3; unlimited light hydroplanes; and monster trucks.
