Great news from our member, KX, part of FD Technologies on their recent partnership with Alpine F1 team as official supplier of real-time analytics software and services.
The KX technology enables real-time data capture and analysis of millions of data points across thousands of sensors for split-second decision-making during races, as well as for off-track operational improvements.
Newry technology is helping to drive a team which recently secured its first-ever F1 win in wet-dry conditions as Frenchman, Esteban Ocon took the chequered flag at last month’s Hungarian Grand Prix.
Ocon’s remarkable victory was one of the sport’s biggest surprises in years as he became the first French driver to win an F1 race in a French car, with a French engine, since 1983.
The shock result pushed world champion, Lewis Hamilton into third place on the day and saw the Alpine F1 team rise to fifth in the Constructors’ Championship.
The KX logo will appear on Alpine F1 team’s garage environment, symbolising the official kick-off of this multi-year, multi-faceted relationship.
Gerry Buggy, Chief Strategy & Product Officer at KX said:
“We are excited to be working with Alpine F1 team to help them enhance on-track and operational performance through real-time data analytics.”
“This partnership strengthens our existing relationship and we look forward to developing the platform to drive on and off-track success.”
FD Technologies with its corporate headquarters in Newry, operates from 15 offices across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific and employs more than 2,500 people worldwide.
