Data to Customization

Lenovo's technology has revolutionized the customization of Ducati bikes in the MotoGP racing world, ensuring they are finely tuned to both the track requirements and individual riders. This partnership goes beyond preparing riders for races; it involves sophisticated simulations of on-track scenarios, highlighting the transformative impact of technology on this high-speed sport. MotoGP demands not only the technical prowess of riders but also cutting-edge technology to tailor each Ducati Desmosedici GP to the unique needs and specifications of its rider, emphasizing the pivotal role of customization in achieving superior performance.

In the world of MotoGP, where both human skill and machine precision are essential, Lenovo devices and technology solutions are instrumental in the development of each rider's customized bike. Ducati employs intricate modeling to predict various scenarios, such as rainy conditions, dusty tracks, or sharp corners, allowing for swift and accurate adjustments. This collaboration underscores the fusion of human expertise and technological innovation, creating a seamless partnership that propels Ducati's MotoGP team to new heights in performance and adaptability.

“Lenovo helps us significantly in data analysis and in bike dynamic simulation, thanks to very high data processing power,” said Cristian Gabarrini, Chief Engineer of racer Francesco Bagnaia.

“Lenovo technology is also strategic in the design and verification phases that include wind tunnel work for aerodynamics and verification loop for electronics,” said Gabriele Conti, Electronic Systems Director, Ducati. “All of these processes are central to the development of next year’s motorcycle.”

“With the power of Lenovo laptops and PCs, now, as soon as Jack Miller (one of the racers) comes back in the box, I’m able to immediately check the bike’s problems– and think about possible solutions”, said Christian Pupulin, Ducati Miller’s Chief Engineer.

Today, race preparation has undergone a transformative shift, with Ducati engineers utilizing high-powered Lenovo servers to run thousands of simulations. These simulations focus on the flow field around the bike, capturing the distribution of density and velocity through space and time. Starting with conceptual ideas of desired bike performance under specific conditions, the simulations aim to bring mental concepts to life. By rapidly and efficiently executing these simulations, Lenovo computers enable Ducati to achieve a more robust and balanced performance from the rider, showcasing the evolution of race preparation methods in the past five years.
