Description The technical details of F1 cars are secrets that teams keep private, but there is plenty of telemetry data on the Internet that can be accessed by the public. This data includes information like spatial coordinates of the car, vehicle speed, tire compound and age, and much more. Telemetry data contains precious information that can be used to individuate the parameters that are needed to describe the vehicle behavior.
While the simulation of vehicle performance starting from the carís parameters is a well-established topic in the literature, not so much work has been done to estimate the vehicle parameters starting from its performance (i.e. telemetry data). Many different phenomena play a role in the overall vehicle performance, including tire wear, vehicle mass reduction due to fuel consumption, traffic, evolution of track conditions and driving style variations. All these phenomena must be carefully considered when analyzing the vehicle telemetry data.
The final goal of this thesis activity is to create a software that takes the telemetry data as inputs and returns the key parameters of the vehicle model as output. After an initial literature review on the approaches that are available to simulate vehicle performance, research effort should be dedicated to determine which is the most suitable algorithm for processing the telemetry data. Then, a code capable of processing the telemetry data should be developed in order to reach the final goal.
