What we do
As part of Genpact's work with Envision Racing, we're improving how the team determines the number of laps in a race with the Lap Estimate Optimizer (LEO). LEO holds a variety of algorithms and helps Envision Racing assess all the elements that influence a race, enhance its predictions, and make the right energy-management choices.
In addition, the team has uncovered an alternative source of data to help it better understand competitors' driving habits. These profiles allow Envision Racing drivers to make more informed decisions at every stage of the race.
“All players in all sports have certain strengths," says Maria. “Take tennis champion Roger Federer as an example. His backhand is among the best on tour, and that's why most players try to stay on his forehand side. In the same way, Formula E drivers play to their strengths and others' weaknesses. Driver profiling makes strategizing easier."
Maria describes her work with the Envision Racing team as “daring," as the team uses AI and advanced analytics to help the team secure more winning finishes. We're excited to see what bold moves Envision Racing and Genpact make as the fifth Formula E season draws to a close.
