Formula One (F1) is experimenting with artificial intelligence during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to better handle track limit violations.

The Paris-based FIA (Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile), which oversees F1, is utilizing 'Computer Vision' technology, which uses shape analysis to identify the pixels crossing the track edge. This AI system will distinguish true breaches, where drivers fully cross the white line, reducing the pressure on the FIA's remote operations center and speeding up response times.

The decision to employ Computer Vision technology is a response to the rising number of track limit assessments required during races. The technology, known for its effectiveness in medical applications, will streamline the process by excluding cases with no clear violations.

Tim Malyon, the FIA's head of remote operations, emphasized the aim to optimize workload, allowing human operators to focus on more complex cases. This move reflects F1's commitment to leveraging technology and enhancing real-time automated policing for more effective race control.
