Case Study: BMW Motorsport Formula E team races toward innovation
Thanks to Fortinet’s security-driven networking, the high-performance connection needed between the racetrack and headquarters is a driver of the team’s success.
Software and data are critically important because Formula E racecars have an electric powertrain.
The series’ governing body, the FIA, provides a power usage limit for every car in each Formula E race. Teams then use live data from the vehicles to constantly calculate optimal power consumption at each moment of the race.
“Winning races in this series is roughly 50% about the car’s hardware and 50% dependent on on-car software to gain maximum efficiency out of the limited battery power.”
