One Stop Systems has shipped to legendary motorsport champion Andretti Global, its first AI Transportable compute system for the motorsport industry.

An OSS SDS-3U GPU-accelerated server will power advanced AI race analytics for Andretti using Zapata AI’s Industrial Generative AI platform for the cloud and edge, Orquestra. The solution represents a new application of OSS technology and the company’s first foray into the $5.1 billion motorsport industry.

Today’s high-performance race cars generate a tremendous amount of data—more than 1,000 gigabytes with every race. Andretti has been seeking ways to rapidly and intelligently analyze this data at trackside in order to gain a competitive edge at all of their racing events next year.

Greg Mosely, VP of strategic partnerships at Andretti Global, said: “We chose OSS technology for its capability of processing high volumes of data with datacenter-class compute power in a transportable system that is ruggedized to withstand the harshest racetrack and transportation environments.

“Being at the forefront of high performance, ruggedized computing systems on the edge has made OSS the clear winner for delivering our specialized AI race analytics at the highest levels of performance and reliability.”

Andretti car sensors collect data that is transmitted from the car to the mobile Zapata AI/Andretti Race Analytics Command Center (RACC) located trackside. The RACC provides a transportable environment where OSS servers can process the collected data and Zapata AI technicians and Andretti engineers can collaborate to create real-time advantages on race day.

OSS CEO Mike Knowles said: “This milestone win demonstrates our unique capabilities for powering generative AI technology at the edge.

“We see this new application of our technology leading to other significant opportunities within the fast-growing motorsport space, as well as other domain-specific industrial-scale applications.”

OSS VP of sales, Robert Kalebaugh, said: “This major win builds upon OSS being a long-time provider of embedded compute and storage technology for FLYHT’s flight safety equipment and networking prototypes.

“Our selection by an industry leader like FLYHT represents a strong validation of our design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities, as well as the comprehensive customer service that we have delivered to FLYHT over the years.”

Knowles added: “The win also reflects the many synergies between Zapata AI and OSS and creates further opportunities to develop customized mobile AI Edge solutions for their growing ecosystem of partners and enterprise customers.”

The OSS 3U SDS is powered by two of the latest GPUs and Intel Xeon Silver 4314 series processors. OSS high-speed PCIe Gen 4 switched interconnects will transport the sensor data to compute processors for real-time data analysis by the Zapata AI generative AI software.
