Event large

No, it's not the Stig. It's the Stig's Open Source Cousin! Hear from an actual racing driver how open source software can be used to take an average driver and turn them into a hero. Open source software and hardware is used to run the fuel injection system (MegaSquirt), model aerodynamics (MatPlotLib, OpenFOAM), log g-forces in real-time (RaspberryPi, Arduino), and track the car's telemetry and performance over time (PostGIS, QGIS).

This presentation covers the accessibility and use of technologies once thought only available to F1 and NASCAR teams!
