Established in Cambridge in 1987, Cosworth Electronics has a worldwide reputation as a leader in the design and supply of data logging, engine control, telemetry and software systems for the automotive industry.
Originally focused on motorsport, the business pioneered the first “black box” data logger used to transmit data wirelessly from a racing car so that engineers in the pit garages could make decisions whilst the vehicle was still on track.
In the three decades that have followed, Cosworth Electronics has become a leader in the transfer of motorsport electronics technologies into adjacent markets including automotive and high-performance sports, enabling vehicle manufacturers and elite sport professionals to better understand and improve their performance. High profile customers from around the world include: seven Formula One teams, four America’s Cup sailing teams, Porsche, General Motors, BMW, Toyota and Honda.
Today, the company still benefits from being headquartered on the outskirts of Cambridge, close to the global powerhouses of silicon and software that have chosen to base their UK R&D activities in the city. The business employs staff covering hardware and software engineering, customer support, commercial and product management and works with a network of trusted suppliers, consultants and distributors around the world.
Looking ahead, Cosworth Electronics recognises that the automotive industry is changing faster than ever before as it embraces the paradigm of connected, autonomous vehicles to deliver intelligent mobility. Cosworth’s ambition is to be at the forefront of this new era not only in continuing to supply professional and consumer products that take full advantage of greater connectivity and smart infrastructures; but also in developing revenues from the potential to harvest, store and mine the data generated by these vehicles.
