Racing the thermals

Written by: Eureka | Published:

The Infiniti Red Bull Racing team called upon FLIR Systems during the 2014 Formula One season to help them gather critical temperature data for a variety of trackside and factory activities.

As an Innovation Partner with the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team, FLIR has been gathering temperature data from the 2014 challenger, the RB10. FLIR is developing solutions using its miniature thermal cameras, like the Lepton Core, to provide the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team with unique insights into the thermal characteristics of their cars' components and operations.

Commenting on the collaboration, Christian Horner, team principal of Infiniti Red Bull Racing, said: "This year sees the most fundamental changes to Formula One in well over a decade. The team which is most efficient in gathering the relevant data, learning effectively and adapting accordingly will be the one which triumphs.

"The insights which FLIR technology can give us will be critical to our understanding of the new car and could give us a key edge over our rivals."
