How Realistic is Gran Turismo 5? Very Realistic!

Polyphony Digital just recently showed a video of the game’s ‘Data Logger Visualization Technology’, which tracks a real life racer driving a lap and converts it to their video game.

‘Data Logger Visualization Technology’ captures every movement of the driver and also how the car handles in real life, such as calculating the G-Force, braking, acceleration, and other details that would help replicate the same scenario as a real racer would drive around a lap.

Toyota Motor Corporation and “Gran Turismo” held a event to show off this new feature and announced their collaboration to use this feature in a new project:

This collaboration is used to control the real world automotive vehicle CAN (Controller Area Network) using the GPS information and location information, “Gran Turismo” in real time to visualize what that is driving the vehicle.

CAN export to USB memory location information and that information, “Gran Turismo” and loaded into a simulation engine, “Gran Turismo” was visualizes as a video replay, you can also play as a ghost, help you analyze your driving or you can.

CAN has the right to information about G Force and handle and brake, accelerator operations, and includes rotational speed of each wheel and engine speed, allowing a highly accurate reproduction of the combination of vehicle and location information .

Pretty cool stuff, but if you ask me, Polyphony Digital has to release the damn game soon before I stop caring about how realistic the game is. No set date of release yet, but it is rumored to be hitting later this year..

Check out the video after the jump.
