Qatar Science and Technology Park has another world-class company availing itself of its state of the art facilities to undertake cutting edge research. Williams Formula One team have set up there to attempt to bring F1 technology to mainstream mass-transit systems. Frank Williams, the owner and director of Williams, gave the example of the KERS system that takes some of the energy from braking in F1 cars and transmits it into extra power ready to be deployed at the touch of a button. There will also be a particular focus on environmentally beneficial technologies, according to Al Arabiyya news. Whilst no accurate figures for the investment and the overall cost of the project were given, it is though that it will be somewhere in the region of $50 million.
