The Driver Evaluation System is a service created by AVEHIL with the aim of measuring and evaluating the driving characteristics of the driver in a completely objective manner. The resulting picture created is not subjective, but a numerical evaluation generated by proprietary algorithms developed by our engineers.
In practice, this is a programme lasting around 2 hours, which is indispensible in immediately identifying the areas of intervention and immediately directing the work needed with the driver where it is most necessary, optimizing time and resources.
It is aimed exclusively at professional drivers (not amateurs and simple enthusiasts of driving simulators) in possession of a regular license, both kart and car, who have already had the opportunity to become familiar with AVEHIL.
In driving on a circuit, braking is perhaps the most crucial and fundamental action in the pursuit of performance. Indeed we could say that all the elements relating to driving revolve around this key variable and for this reason we consider it a priority to analyze the driver's abilities with regard to braking. To do this we have developed a special test, the ‘Braking Test’, which thanks to specific braking sessions allows us to evaluate the maximum peak and modulation capacity of the driver’s braking method and performance. On the basis of the results collected we are able to establish an ititial dedicated work plan for the driver.
At the completion of the ‘Braking test’ and once the collected first basic data has been collected, this will allow us to orient the specific work for each individual driver, who then has approximately 30 minutes of time to use by driving on a circuit known to them aboard a car they are familiar with. The driving session will be alternated with short data analysis sessions aimed at the driver achieving the best performance in the shortest possible time. All the data collected in this driving session will result in an initial evaluation graph of some fundamental driving parameters (such as throttle management, braking, the ability to tackle slow corners...).
The driver then returns to the cockpit for a 1 hour driving session. This run is intended for an evaluation on a specific track. The gap is measured between the performance that the driver is able to achieve and an ideal performance in terms of time, pace, ability to exploit the peak performance of the tyre and the physical limits of the car, the correct procedure for warming up the tyres, the preparation and management tyres. A second graph will summarize the results obtained at the end of the run.
The work carried out so far generates a detailed ‘Driver Sheet’; thanks to the comparison algorithm AVEHIL will be able to provide the driver with an objective evaluation based on real numbers. This is a basic working tool for the AVEHIL staff. Starting from this sheet, it is infact possible to generate a personalized work and growth programme, specific for every individual driver: the R&D Driver.
