Dear MEL Topic Readers,

‘Movement, vibration, dynamism’: The helmet-cam that is revolutionizing Formula E

Started in Beijing in 2014, Formula E is a single-seater electric-powered car race. Racing takes place on 1.9 to 3.4 km long temporary city-center street circuits. The 2019–2020 FIA Formula E Championship is the sixth season of the FIA Formula E championship and will make its debut in Seoul, South Korea in May.

Can you imagine what the car race drivers are looking at and feeling in the cockpit during the race? Some might have seen racing scenes from an onboard camera attached to the car. It shows you what the car racing is like on the street level. Now, thanks to the miniaturizing technologies, a micro camera is attached inside of the driver’s helmet. This Driver’s Eye camera allows viewers to be immersed in the dynamic Formula E car racing in tight corners of the city streets. Since the camera is mounted inside the helmet, you can not only see what the driver is looking at but also feel the vibration. You’ll be surprised to find how little a racing driver can see in the cockpit.

Enjoy watching the video and immerse yourself in a Formula E car racing.
