The Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli sailing team leaves the operational base in Cagliari to reach Auckland (New Zealand) to participate in the 36th America’s Cup.
CRS4 and Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team have been collaborating for 6 years, and, in particular, during the last two ones, have been working in a joint research and development project, funded by the FSC resources 2014-2020 (Agreement for the Development of the Region of Sardinia). Thanks to the latter one, the sailing team has been able to take advantage of emerging technologies thus adapting them to the need of the nautical industry.
The team will then be able to improve its performance in view of the historic trophy's participation to which, since 1851, the most technologically advanced sailing boats in the world are willing to compete.
CRS4 researchers have provided their experience and expertise in the following sectors: high-performance computing, innovative broadband networks for widespread connectivity on a geographical scale, sensors, radio infrastructure for data transmission for real-time visualization of boat monitoring during the competition.
