One Stop Systems to Provide Andretti INDYCAR with First AI Transportable Compute System
Andretti INDYCAR continues to be at the forefront of innovative racing technology as the team will work with One Stop Systems (OSS) to receive and operate the first AI transportable compute system in the motorsport industry during the highly anticipated 2024 INDYCAR season.
Staying ahead of the curve
OSS, a leader in AI transportable solutions, will utilize its OSS SDS-3U GPU-accelerated server to power Andretti’s advanced AI race analytics. Andretti believes that in the motorsport industry, it’s crucial to adopt the latest technology to help gain a competitive edge. Each lap that the team’s state-of-the-art race cars make in a race rapidly quantifies into valuable data that can be analyzed and communicated to the team to improve performance.
“We chose OSS technology for its capability of processing high volumes of data with datacenter-class compute power in a transportable system that is ruggedized to withstand the harshest racetrack and transportation environments,” stated Greg Mosely, VP of strategic partnerships at Andretti Global. “Being at the forefront of high performance, ruggedized computing systems on the edge has made OSS the clear winner for delivering our specialized AI race analytics at the highest levels of performance and reliability.”
AI technology in racing
The OSS SDS-3U GPU-accelerated server will use Zapata AI’s Industrial Generative AI platform for the cloud and edge, Orquestra, to provide AI race analytics. The solution represents a new application of OSS technology and the company’s first foray into the $5.1 billion motorsport industry.
The information collected from the Andretti race cars will then be transmitted to the mobile Zapata AI/Andretti Race Analytics Command Center (RACC), which will be trackside at every INDYCAR race this season. The mobile data hub serves to provide the Andretti engineers with the most up to date information in real time, allowing for necessary adjustments to be made to improve race strategy. This process is integral to how the team operates, and each alteration that is made has the potential to be a race-winning decision.
“This milestone win demonstrates our unique capabilities for powering generative AI technology at the edge,” noted OSS CEO, Mike Knowles. “We see this new application of our technology leading to other great opportunities within the fast-growing motorsport space, as well as other domain-specific industrial-scale applications. The win also reflects the many great synergies between Zapata AI and OSS and creates further opportunities to develop customized mobile AI Edge solutions for their growing ecosystem of partners and enterprise customers.”
