Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Predicts Successful Racing Outcomes with Simulation
How millions of racing scenarios are simulated with TIBCO technology, fueling victory for the seven-time world champion
Just 50 years ago, other than a rudimentary fuel gauge and RPM counter, the only smart sensor in a Formula One racing car was the driver. Today, these powerful cars are equipped with more than 300 IoT sensors, fueling insights that help teams understand performance and determine race strategies.
Powered by TIBCO Spotfire analytics software, Mercedes simulation experts run millions of simulations based on this sensor data—then use the resulting volumes of data to develop insights that can help the team win come race day. The end goal is to build such a well-vetted strategy that the race is won even before it starts.
Check out the case study to learn how millions of racing scenarios are simulated with TIBCO technology, fueling victory for the seven-time world champion, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team.
