INDIANAPOLIS--Tony Kanaan and his KV Racing team are sitting in the No. 8 spot for Sunday's Indianapolis 500 race.
We got a chance to tag along and capture some of the sights and technical essences of modern racing and bleeding-edge automotive electronics. Check out our photos, which we'll update throughout the Memorial Day weekend.
Readers may want to see how IndyCar racing has changed (or stayed the same) over the last decade. Here's a Design News feature where I got to go behind the scenes at one team's engineering center:
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
