Very interesting article. This is indeed very cool stuff. It would be interesting to know how much of this technolodgy used in IndyCars is finding its ways into passenger cars and the benefit to date.

This is a very good article about the Indy Electronics, It is also very equally true that if the racers are given chance they will do many modifications to it, but it requires configurability in the electronics module.

A very unique and specialized electrical electronic application. The design may be simple compared to the electronics found in regular automotive but the reliability when considered got to be much more higher required. The speed will produce vibrations at a higher frequencies and the design of the circuit boards require special attention.

This sounds like a system that is rich for data mining and feedback to the driver. What are the regulations regarding transmission of data from the vehicle to the pit? Is there a capability for the pit to send information to the driver? What about automated safety controls to enable the vehicle to push the envelope without losing control? Are ABS or other such systems allowed?

"An accident data recorder is mounted in the cockpit under the driver’s legs so it is well-protected in case of an accident" So, his legs get broken, but the recorder is OK. Does this mean the driver's legs are there to protect the recorder? I'm sure he didn't mean it that way, but that's how I read it!

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
