"Digital Twin", a pilot project coordinated by Humda Lab Nonprofit, the research arm of the Hungarian Motorsport and Green Mobility Development Agency, was presented at the Hungaroring racetrack, on the outskirts of Budapest, on Friday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Digital Twin involves the use of an experimental, in-car device to transmit data using 5G mobile network technology in real-time, allowing remote participation in a race. 

Technology and Industry Minister Laszlo Palkovics said the project could expand from the "entertainment category" to practical applications in the future, but added, too, that it could "revolutionize" motorsport by "allowing anybody to sit in the cockpit".

Digital Twin involved the cooperation of Magyar Telekom, T-Systems Magyarország, the Digital Development Centre of Széchenyi István University of Győr, the Government Information-Technology Development Agency, and the Technology and Industry Ministry.
