First Derivatives has announced that its Kx technology has been selected by Red Bull Racing to analyse sensor data from its Formula 1 vehicles.

It is intended that Red Bull Racing will use Kx technology for a range of purposes including wind tunnel experiments and the analysis of in-race data to enable real-time decisions during Grand Prix races.

Kx technology is a high-performance data base, which is able to capture, integrate and analyse vast quantities of data to provide real-time actionable insights.

The insights gained and the subsequent action taken by a team and driver in a car race have the potential to make a difference to race results as well as safety on cars, a statement from First Derivatives said.

"We at Kx are delighted to work with Red Bull Racing. Both companies are associated with power, speed, precision engineering and innovation. Over the years F1 has proven itself as an ideal testing ground for disruptive technologies and we look forward to bringing the power of Kx to bear in high-value complementary markets," Brian Conlon, CEO of Kx, said.

The Kx technology provides solutions across a number of industries including pharma, manufacturing, retail, and the internet of things.
