Coming Soon - Inside the Cockpit: How TE brings Fighter Jet Technology to Race Cars

Racing cars are a really tough environment. A racing car that’s comfortable for the driver is a slow car, so niceties like suspension travel get sacrificed for speed. However, that means all the other parts on the car have to withstand this environment. As weight is a critical element, the challenge is to make products smaller and lighter, but able to withstand vibration and heat.

Today's Automobile: Supercomputer on Wheels

With every passing year, it's getting more difficult to recognize the current crop of passenger vehicles as the descendants of Henry Ford's Model T. Those first mass-produced vehicles didn't even include a battery or starting system, relying instead on a hand-cranked engine with a magneto to provide ignition. As recently as 20 years ago, many cars were still essentially mechanical systems supplemented by hydraulic or electrical systems for handling functions like steering, ignition, lights, and audio entertainment.
