In Formula E compared to Formula 1, it is not possible to access the car data during the race, but only when it is in the pits. Analyzing information securely to gain a strategic advantage, especially with a predictive value, in races with a large number of variables, is an aspect of these competitions based on technology that plays a central role. Artificial intelligence, in particular, the machine learning applied to motorsport then become a strategic advantage.
Serguei Beloussov, CEO and founder of the IT security giant Acronis that boasts 5 million users and 500,000 companies as customers and partner of the Ds Techeetah team explain more on this topic.
” In this context the new aspect concerns the work we do with the data and the fact that we are dealing with hardware that generates information that must be protected and used in a strategic and predictive manner , for example to prevent damage or to respond in real time to threats “, says Serguei, referring for example to the possibility of avoiding excessive battery consumption and always getting the maximum power available during the race.
