F1 Telemetry Client

Known Vulnerabilities

The F1 series of games support the outputting of key game data via a UDP data stream. This data can be interpreted by external apps or connected peripherals for a range of different uses, including providing additional telemetry information, customised HUD displays, motion platform hardware support or providing force feedback data for custom steering wheels.

This is a TypeScript UDP client and telemetry parser for Codemaster's F1 2021, F1 2020, F1 2019 and F1 2018, that enables the consumption of such information.

Installing

$ npm install @racehub-io/f1-telemetry-client

or

$ yarn add @racehub-io/f1-telemetry-client

Running the playground

$ npm run start

or

$ yarn start

Usage

import { F1TelemetryClient, constants } from "f1-telemetry-client";
// or: const { F1TelemetryClient, constants } = require('f1-telemetry-client');
const { PACKETS } = constants;

/*
*   'port' is optional, defaults to 20777
*   'bigintEnabled' is optional, setting it to false makes the parser skip bigint values,
*                   defaults to true
*   'forwardAddresses' is optional, it's an array of Address objects to forward unparsed telemetry to. each address object is comprised of a port and an optional ip address
*                   defaults to undefined
*   'skipParsing' is optional, setting it to true will make the client not parse and emit content. You can consume telemetry data using forwardAddresses instead.
*                   defaults to false
*/
const client = new F1TelemetryClient({ port: 20777 });
client.on(PACKETS.event, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.motion, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.carSetups, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.lapData, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.session, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.participants, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.carTelemetry, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.carStatus, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.finalClassification, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.lobbyInfo, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.carDamage, console.log);
client.on(PACKETS.sessionHistory, console.log);

// to start listening:
client.start();

// and when you want to stop:
client.stop();
