To celebrate the start of the Formula 1 season, here is an interesting picture of the new Red Bull:
It’s trade show season, and we’re in the middle of it. So far we’ve gone to PRI in Indianapolis, and Autosport in Birmingham, UK. We had fun discussions about data logging, analysis, and racing in general at both shows. I hope that in a few months we can show the fruits of those contacts publicly. In the meantime, here are some pictures of some really cool kit.
Foolishly, I neglected to take pictures of the most exciting find of the two shows: Strain gauges that can be used to take real-time measurements of a kart’s frame. It would be quite exciting if we could use that to develop a vehicle dynamics model of a kart, and apply all the fancy simulation and prediction tools we have for big cars to karts.
From a recent interview with the 2007 F1 World Champion:
Q: Looking at 2013 and the new car, the first test in Jerez seemed to be pretty positive for the team. Can you confirm that?
KR: We didn’t have any real issues in Jerez. The biggest problem here and in Jerez is basically the new software. We lose all the data when we are running – that is not very good when you are testing and you have some issues with parts and you cannot see it in real time. The car itself is running well – we just have to get that stupid data-logging system fixed. (Source)
James, if you’re reading this, we’ll gladly come out to Enstone and give you a hand 🙂
We greatly enjoyed both the Orlando and Birmingham trade shows. We connected with some great people, and we left with proof that Desiree is The Stig. (Shh, don’t tell anyone.) We’re looking forward to the coming weekend in Offenbach!
