Accelerating Acceleration

How HPE technology powers the DS Virgin Racing Formula E team


High Velocity Analytics

In a series of thrilling races held in cities across the planet, Formula E is paving the way for mass consumer adoption of electric vehicles. DS Virgin Racing team engineers use HPE compute, storage and analytics to crunch vast volumes of performance data and feed guidance back to Formula E racing car drivers.

Expanding the market for electric cars

Formula E will help shrink carbon emissions by the transportation industry, reduce healthcare costs and create a more sustainable future for us all. Ernst & Young predicts consumer interest in Formula E will result in 77 million additional electric vehicles on the roads in coming years. This could reduce annual carbon emissions by 900 million tons and save four billion barrels of oil, according to the EY Global Review 2015 report.

“Our long-term relationship with HPE allows us to scale our analytics to continuously learn more about optimising racing cars and the abilities needed to enable the next generation of electric cars.”
