Sketches: Experiments

Here are some screenshots of ongoing sketches / concepts for visualizing data off of the track.

The first concept was to mimic the relationship of the car’s relative position on the track (in this case by drawing a continuous oval/spiral) and tie that in with the car’s current throttle. In this way we can get a sort of “histogram” of the entire race.
