McLaren Applied is adding a vector native, time series database to its real time analytics software used for monitoring racing cars and other industrial systems.

McLaren Applied is working with KX to integrate the kdb+ and KDB.AI vector database technologies into its ATLAS platform. This will give motorsport teams the ability to monitor race data, run complex AI and ML queries, and make real-time decisions in the garage for maximum benefit.

The ATLAS (Advanced Telemetry Linked Acquisition System) software package captures, distributes, displays and analyses data from control and data logging systems. This has been used in motorsport and automotive applications to date but the addition of KX’s third-party software brings the power of ATLAS to other industries with condition monitoring, offering better prediction and detection of anomalies, and enabling operators to take preventative action before problems arise.

ATLAS users can use the data analysis and visualisation from the kdb+ database, which has a memory footprint of only 800kb and can process workloads up to one hundred times faster than traditional stores and at a fraction of the cost.

Existing KX customers can also now use ATLAS to better understand the behaviour of multiple systems and subsystems via forensic data examination of high frequency data. This not only offers a better way of visualising higher rate data, but allows users to manipulate and process data for more in-depth analysis.

“The integration of KX’s kdb+ software with our already industry-leading ATLAS platform is fantastic news for both McLaren Applied and our customers. This partnership demonstrates our continued determination to deliver ever greater power, speed and agility to race teams on the pit wall, enabling them to do the same on track. It also opens opportunities for us to bring the power of ATLAS to customers in new markets,” said Richard Saxby, Director, Motorsport at McLaren Applied.

“We look forward to seeing how kdb+ compatibility enhances our customers’ capability and experience, demonstrating the full potential of ATLAS that can be realised through further in-house and third-party development.”

“KDB.AI, the industry’s number one vector database, handles both structured time series and unstructured data with unparalleled proficiency – a critical function in the fast-paced world of automotive racing. With McLaren Applied, an industry pace-setter renowned for its cutting-edge technology and high-performance solutions, we can bolster the capabilities of the ATLAS platform, already one of the fastest data management and analytics platforms,” said Ashok Reddy, CEO at KX.
