A navigation system from Honda utilizing driving data, "Internavi." These are visuals to tell the public about the technical background and the history of their efforts. The driving data of the world's fastest lap, achieved by Ayrton Senna while qualifying for the Formula One Japanese Grand Prix, has been digitally restored, and the movement of the engine and accelerator were analyzed. The engine sound from that day was reproduced by combining tones of various revolution speeds recorded from an actual MP4/5 machine. The 24-year old run was recreated by putting multiple speakers and LED lamps along the 5,807 meter long Suzuka circuit and playing the reproduced engine sound synchronized with the driving data.
