This year, the Atacama Rally will be using a following, tracking and proximity alert system known as STELLA.
STELLA is a satellite GPS system that follows competitors in real time, delivering second-by-second information on the track of each rider. It provides visual and audio data from waypoints, control points, radar zones and CAPs and can activate vehicle proximity alerts to enable overtaking or stopping. It executes an automatic emergency alert in the case of slowdown or frontal or lateral tilt, which can also be triggered manually in the event of emergency or breakdown to enable the organization’s security staff to make the right decisions in case of accident.
STELLA also enables online tracking, so that assistance teams, press and fans can visualize one or more competitors.
