Tata Communications has announced the second and final challenge of their 2015 F1 Connectivity Innovation Prize, in which technology enthusiasts are being invited to design a Formula 1 Grand Prix prediction tool.
A prize of $50,000 is available for the winner. The deadline for entries is 8 September 2015.
Participants are required to create a tool that can predict how each Grand Prix will unfold. Submissions should also have the option asking F1 followers to submit their predictions for every driver and team for evaluation.
It should also allow F1 management to rank the forecasts and reward the fans who predict the most accurate outcomes.
Tata Communications chief marketing officer and CEO of NextGen Business Julie Woods-Moss said: "The way we watch sports has changed for good – people want to be more engaged, sharing their own commentary via social media and using different devices to follow multiple video feeds and build their own picture of the action.
"The second challenge of the F1® Connectivity Innovation Prize is about finding new techniques for fans to experience and engage with the sport. We had a remarkable response to the first challenge, and I encourage technical visionaries and creative minds around the world to take part in the final challenge to shape innovation in F1®."
The first challenge was set by the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team. It was about designing a new way of displaying car telemetry and data for engineers.
For the first challenge, the winning entries came from the UK, Spain and Australia.
