Callaway trials IoT connectivity to boost development

Callaway Cars is piloting Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities to gather and to analyze the performance data during on-road testing of the Callaway Corvette Z06 SC757. Callaway can then apply its real-world driving insights from the IoT readings to advance product development.

Callaway Cars is working with product development firm Boston Engineering to design and to implement the ThingWorx IoT platform. Sensors in the Callaway Corvette Z06 collect performance data including speed, engine RPM, air intake temperature and air outlet temperature. The car data is then transmitted to the ThingWorx cloud over a secure wireless connection where Callaway engineers can examine the readings. Callaway also plans to evaluate dealer and customer interest in accessing their Callaway car performance information via IoT.

“Our engineers approach vehicle systems and components without compromise, and we’ve been able to develop products that produce stunning power,” said Reeves Callaway, founder of Callaway Cars. “Working with IoT technology to capture and analyze data quickly can give us another highly effective method to evaluate our products’ performance.”

“Callaway Cars exemplifies how an innovative manufacturer can use IoT to enhance R&D and to introduce new products for added business value,” added Bob Treiber, president and co-founder of Boston Engineering. “We provide powerful IoT capabilities by combining best-in-class technology from partners PTC and ThingWorx with two decades of product engineering consulting experience.”
