Have a look at what top end racing teams are doing with FLIR thermal cameras - like a lot of things technology developed here will filter down
In the partnership, FLIR will develop solutions using our world-class miniature thermal cameras to provide the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team with unique insights into the thermal characteristics of their cars’ components and operations. Managing car temperatures effectively will be a key aspect of ensuring reliability, a factor which is expected to play a significant role in determining the outcome of this season. 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 in this season of transition. 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."
