Zebra Racing

zebra racingWhile Zebra Racing is an actual sport (who knew?), we’re talking about a different kind of Zebra racing. Zebra Technologies recently partnered with Michael Waltrip Racing, a leading NASCAR training development facility, to deploy a brand new pit crew evaluation system.

The solution uses Zebra’s knowledge of real-time locating systems (RTLS) technology combined with racing expertise from the Michael Waltrip team to create Zebra MotionWorks Motor Sports Solution, a next-generation motor sports statistics, event and visualization platform.

The platform will be used to accurately track the location, speed and direction of the pit crew and support equipment during practice. Real-time location solution (RTLS) tags will be used on cars, uniforms and equipment, all of which relay data in real time to receivers throughout the practice track. From there, data will be processed through a custom application in order to give pit crew workers and managers insight into improving performance.

“The talented engineering staff of Michael Waltrip Racing paired with Zebra’s innovative Location Solutions team will allow us to deploy an application that will help racing teams better evaluate and optimize pit crew performance, changing competitive racing as we know it,” said Jill Stelfox, General Manager of Location Solutions at Zebra.

Since the system was designed specifically for the sports industry, Zebra MotionWorks will allow Michael Waltrip Racing to overlay real-time data on top of existing video footage. This objective performance data will help to accurately visualize and ultimately, improve success.
