This data-centric approach highlights TIBCO's advanced analytics prowess and is a reflection that our relationship goes beyond just technical support to innovation, helping the team continually improve performance in the immediate moment and beyond.

Leading with Innovation

The team's unique approach is a combined analysis of actual race data and data-at-rest captured during simulations to further the pace, efficiency, and advancement of innovation. By utilizing TIBCO Spotfire® analytics, the team's ability to leverage data and quickly turn it into optimized performance throughout the season is a significant contributing factor in Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport's championship credentials.

Maximizing the Chance of Winning a Race

Over the course of a race weekend, both cars transmit 250 gigabytes from 7 billion data points collected by 400 sensors from over 50,000 unique channels. The effective and efficient use of the most impactful data empowers Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport to establish the best theoretical configuration and race strategy. Across the team, data has become the common language for collaboration to create an optimal car design. It's so important that even on a daily basis, groups within the team optimize car design by accessing data from various systems and leveraging data science models.
