Qualcomm and the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team Collaborate on Racecar Data Sharing Over 5 GHz Wi-Fi for Improved Speed, Efficiency and Safety

Technology Deployed For Practice Sessions During 2015 Formula One Race Season

Qualcomm Incorporated through its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, announced they have collaborated to enable the wireless download of racecar telemetry data via Wi-Fi® using 5 GHz spectrum during Formula One™ practice sessions. This technology implementation marks a significant improvement over previous wired data offloading processes. The telemetry includes data from thermal imaging tire cameras, which is used to improve speed, efficiency and vehicle safety.

Sharing this data via Wi-Fi over the 5 GHz spectrum is designed to enable much faster data transfer of large vehicle diagnostics files and prevent frequent trips to the garage to offload data, which previously required a plug-in connection from the car to computers in the garage. Data is now transferred via high-speed wireless in the pitlane. This advancement allows the Mercedes racecar to make better use of limited practice sessions and spend more time testing the configuration of the vehicle, providing the team with a distinct competitive advantage.
