What exactly is it about racing drivers that makes them so fast?
Is it an ability the average person simply does not possess, or can it be taught or even trained?
Together with our partners at Nissan Motorsport, we are analyzing the human brain of elite athletes from the e-dams formula E team for an answer.
Some automotive researchers believe that being able to measure brain activity
will be the next frontier of performance for race teams, as they seek to extract more performance from drivers by looking at exactly how their brain reacts to their inputs on track.
Together with Dr. Lucian Gheorghe, Senior Innovation Researcher at the Nissan Research Center, in Japan, and leader in the field of brain analysis, we are performing a series of studies on how electrical stimulation can enhance the brain’s ability to learn new skills and retain them.
By applying these learnings to Nissan’s technologies, Gheorge and his team believe
it is possible to improve driver performance, not only in the average road car user, but also professional race drivers too – like Nissan Formula E drivers Sebastien Buemi and Max Günther.
If you have a pioneering idea like the Nissan team, and would like technical and scientific support to implement it, contact us!
