Short notice wind forecast
Wind conditions on the water can alter quickly. After a warm bright sunny day, a storm can develop out of no where. Wind is difficult to predict accurately. An official forecast can easily vary ± 30% in practice. Everybody who has been on the water, has had one of these experiences.
At this moment we are developing a working prototype that can forecast the wind conditions for the next 1-2 hours. In extreme conditions the system will act as a warning system. The system is NOT a weather forecast system. It will interact with the environment and the available onboard navigation data and will predict wind trends in speed and direction for the next 1-2 hours. This system is not only useful in leisure and professional market but will provide great advantages in competition.
The benefits of this system are;
- Specially added safety. There will be always a warning in times of approaching danger. This give you time to react accordingly.
- A more relaxed experience. There is a background system keeping watch over the weather.
- Predictable less damage and/or wear and tear on the equipment. This system is a cost saver in the long run.
- To be able to anticipate on changes in wind direction and speed. This will give you the leading edge in competition.
