Cosworth, the well-known auto performance group, is making a public return to the IndyCar car racing series. The company just unveiled its Cosworth Live on Air system, which puts portable WiMAX in each car, potentially offering spectators trackside and at home live feeds of interesting data. Most, if not all, of this info is already available to race scrutineers via the Cosworth equipment built into all the cars, but the Cosworth Live on Air system should see that data presented to fans in new ways.
Cosworth, the world-renowned performance engineering and manufacturing group, has today announced the launch of its Cosworth Live On Air system, which has the potential to revolutionise the racing experience for millions of race fans through enhanced social media and multi-screening. The launch of Cosworth Live on Air, which comes ahead of the third round of the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series that takes place in Birmingham, Alabama this weekend, reaffirms and builds on Cosworth’s presence in the championship which dates back more than twenty years. Cosworth technology already plays a crucial role in the Verizon IndyCar Series as the company provides electronics to series organisers as part of a scrutineering system.
