It’s all about Data!

29 August 2017

On the road and on the race track, just knowing how fast you are travelling is no longer enough. While in motion, your car is generating a lot of data. Generally, it’s being stored on the car’s electronic control unit (ECU), so when you take it in for a service, the engineers know what tasks need addressed first, or if there’s anything they need to understand more before a particular job.

Data on the car’s health is also key in the world of motorsport – things like oil temperature and pressure are equally critical to know as on its road-car cousin, however, the critical data as far as the track-side engineer is concerned is much more performance related – the need for speed is the name of the game here!
