Powering the Future
Autosport presents some of engineering's greatest opportunities – and its toughest challenges. Winning demands a commitment to a constant cycle of innovation within demanding time requirements. The results must endure extreme temperatures, vibration, and race day conditions. Discover how TE is powering the future of autosport.
Milliseconds matter. It is the difference between 1st and 2nd place, the top step of the podium and the one slightly lower, the biggest trophy and big trophy. It is a race of speed, but even more — details. To capture the checkered flag, a top driver is key. But behind every winning driver — a team of engineers who theorize, test and tinker under the most extreme and demanding conditions. TE Connectivity is proud to support the Andretti Formula E team and group of engineers in their quest to be the world’s top electric race team. Inside every Andretti race car, and throughout the racing community, you will find TE connectors, sensors and cables. But beyond helping electric cars reach new levels of speed, we’re committed to sustainable, clean-energy innovations that will revolutionize how we live, work, play and learn. Our partnership with Andretti Technologies provides a unique platform to develop and test new technologies in a racing environment that will help Power the Future of racing and industry applications.
As the world’s first fully electric racing series, the FIA Formula E championship presents unprecedented challenges to engineers. With 200-kilowatt batteries powering cars capable of speeds over 130 mph (210 km/h), every component could mean the difference between winning and defeat. Powering The Future, a collaboration between TE and Andretti Technologies, is the story of one Formula E racing team’s pursuit of victory in uncharted territory. Learn how TE is helping to bring Andretti Technologies’ car to the finish line faster.
