Formula E, the all-electric motorsport championship quickly gaining popularity around the world, showcases automotive innovation at the highest levels.
From race strategy to car design to a focus on best-in-class electric battery power, it’s no surprise that this sport is increasingly considered a source of inspiration for the future of mobility.
Technology advancements being developed and tested at the racetracks may soon reach the consumer electric vehicle (EV) market.
A safer way to drive
On the racetrack, advanced technology such as digital twins, sensors, and LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) make it possible for Formula E cars to race at top performance without sacrificing driver safety.
Potential mechanical issues can be identified in advance using a digital twin of the car to predict which parts may fail and recommend preventative maintenance measures well in advance. At the same time, just as technology is used to predict the car’s performance, sensors and data analytics can be used to monitor the driver’s health for their safety. These features will be invaluable for everyday consumers, helping to keep their cars functioning well and avoiding common driving problems.
A better automotive experience for everyone
Innovations that are fueling the Formula E cars will drive the future of mobility.
In addition to a safer and more sustainable driving experience, the future of mobility will be more enjoyable for the driver, with AI and automation making it easier to access driving information and communicate with the wider world. Informed by rapid advancements in motorsports like Formula E, it’s clear that the future of mobility will help make the world a better place for everyone.
