Faro France has just signed a contract with the French racing team Tech1 Racing which makes Faro the official supplier of 3D measurement systems for a team that, by its know-how, has managed to impose itself in the single-style and single-seater championships. Under the terms of the contract, Faro will provide state-of-the-art products and services to Tech1 Racing, including the Faro Edge measurement arm, the Faro Laser Line Probe laser scanner for contactless measurements and the Laser Tracker Vantage. Tech1 Racing intends to use this metrological equipment to improve the settings of its race cars and the performance of its vehicles. For example, the Laser Tracker Vantage will be used to adjust the body heights of monohulls to the micron. The use of the Laser Scanner Focus3D is also being studied to obtain the scans of race circuits that can be used to optimize the ID1 simulator developed by Tech1 Racing, the first total immersion simulator located at the Nogaropôle test centre.
