Ducati Corse – Thanks to 100 sensors “Internet of Things” integrated into Ducati bikes and the potential of artificial intelligence and machine learning, technicians will be able to have real-time data obtained in tests on the track. So, they’ll have a real advantage in the race.
Ducati Corse can process a larger amount of data
This is the last frontier of development that Ducati will have this year, thanks to the new method of intelligence testing. A system characterized by an analytics engine tailored Accenture laboratories in collaboration with Ducati Corse. With the use of machine learning, they can process a larger amount of data. Then, they can develop multiple configurations available for testing, with predictions of more accurate performance.
“The ability to use both previous test data, whether new data will help us to choose the ideal configuration for our motorcycles.” said Gigi Dall’Igna, General Manager of Ducati Corse. “This creative tool will make our tests a smart process. It helps us to get the best performance regardless of weather or the circuit.”
“By simulating and monitoring the performance of the bike in a variety of weather and runway, we were able to make the application of machine learning integrated with sensor data IoT. They would cut to a minimum the time, cost and effort required by traditional tests on the track.” explained Marco Valle, Accenture Analytics.
The announcement of the partnership between Accenture and Ducati Corse was given in conjunction with the opening of the Mobile World Congress. At the booth of Accenture at the fair in Barcelona where you can witness a technology demonstration with a replica of the Ducati Desmosedici GP. At the end of the exhibition in Spain, the project created for Ducati will be available at the Delivery Acceleration Center (DAC) in Rome.
Ducati technicians will save time
With more data available, including engine operating parameters, speed, RPM and temperature of tires and brakes Ducati technicians will save time, but also money and resources, with the possibility to realize, test after test, bike more intelligent.
