Tight city circuits, rapidly changing course conditions, and 24 drivers with an eye on the finish line – and their battery power.
Formula E is motor racing with a purpose. The world's first all-electric, single-seater championship combines an exhilarating fast-paced contest with a social mission that unites teams, partners, and fans around the globe. And for Envision Racing, data, analytics, and the Race Against Climate Change are at the heart of the team's work.
Motor racing has relied on performance-based analytics for years. But Envision Racing is taking the combination of data, advanced technologies, and human intelligence to a deeper level.
The team is enhancing its motorsport know-how with Genpact's digital technologies and data skills to power a new breed of intelligence and decision-making. This approach not only helps the team win points on the track but also targets and attracts new fans and pursues its bigger goal: the Race Against Climate Change.
The foundations of the partnership between Genpact and Envision Racing go further than simply implementing technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI). The Envision team already had a strong talent base. "More than half my engineers are software and data experts," says MD and CTO Sylvain Filippi. "They don't touch the cars. All they do is look at performance data to manage energy and make our cars go faster."
By bringing together our skills in digital transformation with the team's racing knowledge, we're unlocking augmented intelligence. And through the strength of our relationship, we've nurtured trust between the teams and trust in the insights our solutions deliver.
We're helping the team make rapid, data-driven decisions. We're creating the world's first instinctive racing team.
