Data moves Formula 1 of the ocean

In order to create a winning strategy in any sport, particularly those where man is not the only one involved, it is important that many factors are taken into consideration. Many teams are increasingly using technology to analyze the data.

SailGP is a competition for catamaran sailors that many liken to Formula 1 of the ocean. The championship is split into multiple regattas, with one being held in Cadiz in October. These competitions are a test of crew skill, as well as other aspects. To win, there are more than 20 variables that must be taken into consideration.

It was difficult to understand the impact of these decisions and make the right decisions in each case. In the F50 category, thousands of sensors are installed in every component of the ship. Crew members can consult this data in real-time, which allows them the ability to monitor the ship's behavior and make decisions.

Each of the eight catamarans has 30,000 data points. These IoT (internet-of-things) sensors provide large binary data sets that are sent in real time to cloud storage and transmitted to the cloud. Oracle, the technology provider responsible for the project, said that they can reach their London data center in less than 80 milliseconds from where the regatta takes place. This is thanks to a high availability link.

The platform responsible for processing the information has collected 40,000 million data requests per browsing session to give an indication of how much information was being transmitted. All of them can be used for different purposes. You can use them to create 2D and AR graphics, or to monitor boat movements and provide data to fans.

The data are then stored in a self contained repository. The simulator also includes an analytics tool, Oracle Analytics Cloud. This allows speed calculations to scale with distance. This allows teams to compare their performance, view an F50 (the fastest racing sailboat in the world), and test the boat under different weather conditions.

Data from sensors can be used to improve the results for teams competing in regattas. These data are crucial for engineers who design boats. They allow them to understand how the 'foils, the sheets or wings on which they rest, work and can optimize their performance based on wind. They also detect ballast, which can prevent progress at higher speeds, and help to ensure the safety of the crew.

Boats have recently received more sensors to gather data about wind, load, boat position, and other parameters. All this is to help the catamaran sail more quickly. The crew can also perform manoeuvres with artificial intelligence and machine-learning tools in the middle portion of the regatta.

These tools can also calculate, in real-time, the odds of each boat winning. They analyze the way the sailboat sailed and the marks it reached. All the data collected during the season will be used to improve the simulator, which will replicate the waves and real sea conditions in order to understand the behavior of each sailboat at different times.
