Ten members of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing tested the latest technology from Google Inc. – Google Glass – at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Step inside the world of racing with the crew as Engage Mobile Solutions releases this real-time video featuring RLL driver Graham Rahal, co-owner and Indy 500 winner Bobby Rahal, and the RLL Racing team’s pit crew. 

“We were excited to work with Engage Mobile to experiment with the latest wearable technology from Google before it is available to the general public.”

The video showcases the “real time” perspective of Graham Rahal and highlights other members of the pit crew as they scramble to provide a full pit stop including tire change and refueling in seconds.

“Racing is all about shaving hundredths of a second from your lap time and pit stops, and our team is looking for every opportunity to get better and faster,” said Graham Rahal. “The video allows the public a personal view of our fast-paced world and allows us to look for ways to become even better.”

Google Glass, a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display, provides information in a smartphone-like, hands-free format. This innovative new technology allows users to interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands to perform tasks like navigation, accessing the Internet, texting, taking pictures, and shooting videos.

Google Glass is an experimental product that will not be made available to the general public until later in 2014. Engage Mobile is working with Google to develop software and explore unique applications of Glass, such as compiling the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing video project at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
