TE Connectivity Keeps Data Moving on the Race Track

November 15-17, 2017 TE Connectivity Booth #3052, Hall 10.1 Koelnmesse — Cologne, Germany. Both on the road and on the race track, tracking speed is no longer enough. Data is key in motorsports, and cars generate a lot of data. Engineers use this critical information to determine how to service a vehicle. In addition, data about oil temperature, pressure and more can help determine the health of a vehicle. TE Connectivity's connectors and sensors help translate this information to track-side engineers, instantly.
