Formula 1 racing sees the use of thermal imaging

Thermal imaging in Formula 1 racing has some incredible results

| Technology in Vehicles News | Posted: Sep 9, 2013 4:50 am

Thermal imaging is getting quite popular, but it looks like Formula 1 racing could be one of the sports it really excels in. At this weekend's Italian Grand Prix, the technology was used to see Paul di Resta's car involved in a crash.

 

 

A thermal imager was set up behind the cockpit, which gave us his point-of-view in thermal imaging of the crash. We can see the front tires heat up, glowing bright orange after numerous times around the track. As he hits another car, we can see one of the orange-colored tyres fly upward, which looks quite amazing compared to real-life footage.
