Here’s what the judging panel had to say: “This entry had it all; fan focused, cutting edge technology, the application of analytics, and data driving improved engagement. On top of which, its rights holder is promoting a more environmentally sustainable version of its product. Congratulations to the team which devised this!”

Together with Formula E, we developed an innovative and impactful interdisciplinary approach to measure in-the-moment audience engagement. Our team used MindProber’s research-grade biometric sensor to capture second-by-second emotional activation through galvanic skin response (GSR) and attitudinal surveys to capture rational responses – with this insight, we were able to pinpoint exactly what audiences found most enjoyable and exciting about watching the sport.
The innovative biometric solution has revolutionised Formula E’s understanding of viewer engagement.
