Historic vehicles coupled with modern technology – the fahr(T)raum Ferdinand Porsche Worlds of Experiences demonstrate how this works, with the hoots classic sensor systems.
Hoots is a system that displays engine data on a mobile phone in real time, by means of sensors installed in the classic car – effectively a “digital jacket for the analogue heart.” Via Bluetooth, up to 12 sensors deliver not only live data on the oil pressure, rev. counter, alternator regulator, temperature and battery charge but also warnings in case of limit values or risk of theft (shaking, door opening).
Via the hoots app and the hoots cloud the data can be permanently saved and recalled. Trips are listed by the day, and extensive statistics allow accurate analysis.
fahr(T)raum uses modern sensor technology made in Germany.
Even the fahr(T)raum team uses the hoots technology for operation and maintenance of the excursion vehicles. Nine classic cars, which can also be booked for excursions, already have hoots installed.
Max Lampelmaier, owner of car dealership Ford Lampelmaier in Mattsee and former Austrian rally champion, maintains the museum’s classic cars and explains how the sensor technology is used: “The main focus is on the technical area. Continuous monitoring of the oil pressure, temperature and rev. counter enables us to react and prevent damage. When you press the hoots central switch, you also activate the theft protection. From the data recorded in the hoots cloud, you can investigate subsequently, e.g. in case of an accident, the speed at which the accident happened or even how many kilometres were driven.”
