When medicine and motorsport collide

Human telemetry system, 2008

Measuring car performance can be critical for achieving that millisecond advantage. F1™ teams have developed top-of-the-range telemetry systems that monitor 150,000 measurements a second from over 200 sensors on the car. Teams analyse this information to decide whether any adjustments are needed during the race.

Using their trackside experience of remote monitoring, F1™ technicians have developed a human telemetry system that can help doctors monitor patients taking part in clinical trials.

Wireless sensors record patient data such as heart rate or motion. This information is transmitted in real time to the clinic, where doctors can assess how patients are responding to treatments, even enabling them to change drug doses remotely.
