ABB’s latest video series about its partnership with the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship showcases the closely linked and exciting worlds of a global technology leader and the pioneering global all-electric motor racing series.
Together, these two high-performance partners are driving progress in technology that will help ensure a cleaner, more sustainable, future for coming generations.
The series of five videos will explore common touchpoints between ABB and ABB Formula E, highlighting parallels both in technology and philosophy.
Whether viewed individually or as a series, the videos will shine a light onto the cutting-edge technologies pioneered by ABB and the mould-breaking ambition of ABB Formula E.
“Ease of use… will enable cobots to work side-by-side with human co-workers,” says Andie Zhang, ABB’s Global Product Manager Collaborative Robotics. By programming cobots to perform tasks that human co-workers don’t want to do, efficiency and teamwork are increased. The same spirit applies to ABB Formula E teams, where humans and machines have to work together in pursuit of victory in the all-electric world championship.
“We’re pushing every day to make sure this technology becomes more relevant,” says Dilbagh Gill, head of the Mahindra ABB Formula E team, as he discusses powertrain efficiency advances in episode three of our video series ‘Drivers of Progress’. As we discover, cutting-edge e-mobility developments in ABB Formula E are mirrored in ABB’s own industrial motors and drives applications, driving progress in energy saving and recuperation.
In the second episode of our new video series ‘Drivers of Progress’, we look at the technological progress in e-mobility being driven by the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship – while answering some penetrating questions from children whose futures stand to benefit from the emissions-free future promised by electric vehicles.
As ABB Formula E races through the world’s most iconic inner cities, we look beyond the racetrack to highlight local pioneers writing the future in their field of expertise.
Like ABB – a company built on its value pairs such as safety & integrity, innovation & speed, collaboration & trust – these pioneers are committed to using technology to help create a more sustainable planet for this and future generations. In fields as diverse e-mobility, ocean research, smart agriculture and connected transport these unsung heroes are pushing boundaries, but all with a united vision: running the world without consuming the earth. Their independent thinking and willingness to embrace new technologies in pursuit of sustainable goals exists in perfect harmony with ABB’s own core philosophies and here, through a series of short films, we showcase the remarkable endeavor of these intrepid pioneers.
