Abstract

The project will develop a new generation of human-in-the-loop (HiL) sailboat simulators to strengthen R&D within Australia's largest sporting goods market and to increase the participation rates in sailing. The resulting HiL develpments will be useful to a wide range of educational, sporting and training applications, including fo example motorcycle and automotive driver simulators. Furthermore, the innovative boat-to-boat interaction capability of the simulations will lead to improved aids in high performance yacht racing like the America's Cup.
